ZOHO CRM Role Based Security

Zoho CRM includes Role Based Security which provides an Enterprise-grade Role-based security to control the access rights of users while working with CRM data and modules such as leads, accounts, contacts, potentials etc. The Role-based security includes Profiles, Roles, Data Sharing Rules, Field-level security, and Groups.

At gAdviser, we'll help you configure the right role based security for your CRM solution.

Using profiles, you can define fine-grained access rights to the CRM modules, data administration tools, CRM records, and fields within each module.

With the Roles and Data Sharing Rules, you can set up multi-level organizational hierarchy and control the data-level access rights as per user's role within organization.

Groups (also called as Teams) allow you to extend the data-level access to other users with similar job profile, working in the same department or project, or sharing the data among common geographical location.
