Employee roles in the Schedules and Bookings modules

Updated 2 months ago by Katarzyna

Who can use this function?

Users who have access to Dock Scheduler add-on and have corporate account administrator privileges.

When your company receives access to the Dock Scheduler add-on, all employees will see a new module in the Platform - Schedules (if you have the Dock Scheduler add-on or the CargoON line) or Bookings (if you have the Trans for Carrier line or the Trans for Forwarder line). As an administrator, you can manage the roles of your employees in the module by assigning them different roles in the add-on.
