Granting Client Portal Access to a User from Roles

You can also grant a user Client Portal permission from the Roles page.

  • From the Akaunting UI, Click on the Profile icon profile icon on the Sidebar.
  • On the expanded Navigation panel, go to Roles. The default roles are Accounting, Customer, Manager, and Employee.

Client Portal user access
  • Then, Save.

Note that a User can’t have access to both the Client Portal and Admin Panel. Both features have different functions and are managed separately. You should create different Users for Admin Panel access and Client Portal access, respectively.

Also, a User with Client Portal access can’t access other Features/Pages on your Akaunting profile.
