This guide has been created for system administrators.

Specific role permissions may be required, including: User Templates.


The access to the Edays features and functions that a user is provided with is determined by their role and, subsequently, their role permissions. The users that can be viewed in respect of these features and functions is determined by the User View settings.

This guide provides the steps required to set the Staff Records User View at the Template system level, which will override the Global level setting. If you are set to the 'Standard Administrator' or 'Standard Authoriser' role, or your role includes authoriser type role permissions, this view determines the staff records that you will have access to in the admin panel or front-end dashboards screens. 


Step by step guide:

  • Navigate to Admin tools > Admin panel.
  • Go to Templates > User templates.
