What is a Read-Only Accounting Manager?
Read-Only Accounting Managers can see anything a normal accounting manager can see but cannot make any changes to that information. This includes:
- Connected MineralTree accounts
- Documents captured in MineralTree
- Invoices created, pending, and paid in MineralTree
- Vendor details
- Invoice approval rules
They cannot see:
- Bank cash balance
- Actions taken on payments made including:
- Add to Queue
- Add a Note
- Buttons or links that would normally allow a change to be made (e.g. Save, Add, Edit, Delete, Create etc)
How to create a read-only user
Only MineralTree Administrators can create a Read-Only Accounting Manager. An admin can create the user like they would any other user except they would select "Read-Only AM" as the user type. Read-only Accounting Managers can also be invoice approvers by checking the "Invoice Approver" box under the role drop-down menu. This would allow this user to also approve and reject (and potentially create/edit) invoices. Currently, that is the only other role that can be combined with Read-Only Accounting Manager.
