What is an authorization group?

An authorization group is a set of employees with the same authority within the Factorial platform. In simpler terms, it's a designated group with identical access and permissions.

Factorial provides two authorization groups by default:

  • Super admin: individuals in this group have full power over the platform
  • Default employees

To meet all the needs a company may have, Factorial also offers the possibility to create custom authorization groups.

For example, you might need to create a dedicated authorization group for Managers, IT team, and Finance team.

Members, access levels, and visibility

Within an authorization group, you can define:

  • Members: these are the individuals belonging to the group. You can add or remove members from the permissions groups by clicking on the right arrow, either manually or through dynamic groups.
  • Access levels: enable default access levels or add custom levels to grant a specific set of access and permissions for this authorization group.

  • Visibility: this represents an additional security setting that you can configure for your authorization group. Choose which employees and their information can be viewed by members of this authorization group.
