Product Update – 15 Feb, 2014

We have finished 12th update of LeadSquared on 15th Feb, 2014. The prominent feature of this update is introduction of User Roles.  More about it and other changes is documented below.

Note: If you find any inconsistency in the User Interface of LeadSquared when you access the application after the product update, please clear your browser cache. On most computers it can be done by pressing “Control + F5” keys. 

1. User Roles

LeadSquared now supports concept of User Roles and corresponding access rights. Before this release only 2 roles were supported, Admin and non-Admin with only few distinctions between the two.  Now, LeadSquared has 4 clearly defined User Roles:

User RoleAccess Rights

  • Can access only the Leads assigned (where the user is the Lead Owner)
  • Cannot access Marketing Functions like Email Campaigns, Landing Pages, Autoresponders
Sales Manager
  • Can access ALL leads (leads assigned to any user)
  • Cannot access Marketing Functions like Email Campaigns, Landing Pages, Autoresponders
  • Limited access to Settings
Marketing User
  • Can access ALL leads (leads assigned to any user)
  • Can access all Marketing Functions
  • Limited access to Settings (more than Sales Manager but less than Administrator).
Administrator
  • Full access to everything

You can find detailed access rights of each role at: User Roles and Access Rights

Note: All existing users of LeadSquared with Admin role have been assigned “Administrator” role in the new scheme of User roles. The non-Admin users have been assigned “Marketing User” role.
