Once a user has been granted access to a company, Fathom allows you to manage the company settings steps, analysis tools and report types that a user can access. Here are a few example scenarios where Advanced User Permissions can prove useful.

  1. Enable a 'Client/Viewer' user to change settings without letting them update data (or vice versa).
  2. Restrict a user from accessing a specific analysis tool (eg. the 'growth' analysis tool), to focus their attention on other tools and concepts.
  3. Allow a 'Client/Viewer' user to set targets for their company, but restrict them from changing other settings.
  4. Prevent a user from accessing or viewing 'Draft' reports or 'Custom templates', but retain their ability to view 'Published' reports.
  5. Allow a 'Client/Viewer' user to edit draft or published reports. View the below heading for 'Control access to report types' for more detail.

❗ Note: The advanced user permissions are additional settings and are not allowed to  conflict with the permissions associated with the assigned user role. For example, you cannot prevent an ‘Advisor/Editor’ user from editing the settings of a company.
