Roles and Permissions

How do the Nook user roles and permissions work and how do I update them?

What roles and permissions are there in Nook?


The owner role gets the permission of the accounting, finance, payer and payroll roles below. In addition, the owner manages the company settings, that includes the ability to add and reject users, manage their roles and groups, create and delete approval rules, and access to billing and credits.


The finance role gives access to the bank accounts section. The user can add new bank accounts with open banking as well as Nook wallets. The user has visibility of balances and transaction history.


The accounting role gives full rights to invoices, orders and credit notes and the network, including creating and managing payment runs, but Accounting cannot make payment. Accounting has the ability create, edit and invite approvers. Accounting also has visibility of the network and the ability to manage the network, add new contacts and edit those contacts, including bank details.
