Mobile and staff portal permissions

Updated 1 month ago by Leigh Hutchens

Once you have Quinyx access rights enabled, you should share staff under Roles, NOT in the Staff card.

You can configure permissions for the mobile app from Quinyx. Navigate to Account settings > Access rights > Mobile and staff portal permissions:

Employee functionality

You will see a list of the staff categories that you have set up within your organization. These staff categories will be used to control all employee functionality in the mobile app. The configured permissions that you will see when clicking on a staff category are inherited from Classic. Review all staff categories to ensure that the permissions are set according to how you want it in your organization. 

Note that all changes you make to the staff category permissions will be applied immediately, so if you set one permission to no access the employees with that staff category will no longer have access to that feature in the mobile app.

Who can an employee access in the mobile app?

Colleagues tab, Qmail tab, Badges tab: Employees who are shared to a unit/section are visible on the Colleagues, Qmail, and Badges tabs, no matter the role and the way the employee is shared. The idea is that everyone should be able to contact anyone that they might come into contact with in their daily work. This means everyone who has a role on any of the units/sections that you have a role on can see you in the colleagues view and send you emails and badges. You can also come into contact with, and be able to contact, your superiors.

Schedule: Employees can only see one level higher than themselves in the schedule. For example, an employee can only see section managers, and a section manager can only see a local manager. If a manager has an employee role in the same unit as the employee, the manager is visible in the schedule for the employee.

Manager functionality

The next thing with mobile and staff portal permissions in Quinyx are the permissions for Manager-specific features in the mobile app. This will be controlled by the permissions defined on the Quinyx manager roles. The table below describes how the role permissions in Quinyx are mapped against the manager feature in the mobile app:

  • Employee functionality will be checked against what is defined on the logged in users staff category.
  • Manager functionality will be checked against the logged in manager's Quinyx role and the permissions for that role.
  • What groups you have access to will be decided based on what groups the logged in user is a member of in Quinyx.
  • Who you can see will be decided based on what groups the logged in user is a member of.
  • Who a manager can schedule will be decided based on what groups the logged in manager has access to.
Note that all changes you make on staff category permissions will be applied immediately, so if you set one permission to no access, the employees with that staff category will no longer have access to that feature in the mobile app. This is not dependent on our support activating Quinyx Mobile and staff portal permissions for your organization.

It's also possible to add new staff categories to be used for mobile and staff portal permissions:

  • Navigate to Account settings > Access rights > Mobile and staff portal permissions.
  • Click Add at the top of the page.
  • Give the staff category a name.
  • Click Add.

You can also delete a staff category by clicking on the delete button in the list of staff categories.
