Feature Admins

Feature Admins play a vital role in helping to perform administrative tasks for each feature within BerniePortal. While an employer's Global Admin has full access to BerniePortal, Feature Admins operate as additional admins that can be assigned to a specific subgroup for each individual feature. 

To assign an employee as a Feature Admin:
  1. Select the "Account" dropdown. 

  2. Select "Feature Admins" from the left side menu. 
  3. Select “Add an Employee” under the desired feature. 
  4. Select the subgroups where the employee should have feature admin access, and confirm Data Visibility settings.
  6. Type in the employee’s name in the text field, then select their name when it appears.

  7. Once an employee has been assigned as a Feature Admin, the employee can toggle between their employee and Feature Admin account via the account dropdown. 

To toggle between employee and Feature Admin accounts:
  1. Select the "Account" dropdown. 
  2. If logged in as an employee, select "Switch to admin account."

  3. If logged in as a feature admin, select "Switch to employee account."

Managing existing Feature Admins:
  1. To remove an existing feature admin, hover over the action wheel next to the employee’s name and select “Remove.”

  2. To edit an existing feature admin’s permissions, hover over the action wheel and select “Edit Permissions.”

  3. Make the desired changes and select “Save.”

*Note - Feature Admins cannot see themselves in the employee listing when logged in as a Feature Admin.
