We have a retail store, our staff has access to our shopfiy console to input inventory. Is there any way to password protect the delete product button? We have thousands of items, all an employee would need to do to hypotechtically steal an items is to delete a product and it would not exist anymore
This is Max from the Shopify Team.
If this is a concern for you, I would suggest setting different permissions for the staff accounts listed on your shop.
Head to Settings > Account > scroll to Accounts and permissions and click on the staff member's name to edit their permissions. From here; scroll to Admin access, if this person currently has full access enabled, you'll need to untick this to show more options.
This will reveal the options available for you to allow access to:
By unticking the Products option, this staff member will not be permitted to edit this section of the admin. Be sure to save any changes made before leaving this page.
For more info on Staff Permissions and accounts check out these help docs:
If you have any more questions about your account, please feel free to reach out to us directly. ?
Max again. ?
There isn't currently a way to further restrict access to the sections as they are listed in the admin (and in that screenshot I shared earlier).
If you are looking to keep a closer eye on what is being saved, changed, and edited in your admin, I'd suggest checking out the activity feed of your shop.
You can view this in a few different ways:
Then to get deeper into it and check on what's been changed you can click View all recent activity.
This doesn't stop staff from making changes, but it allows you to see if products have been deleted and by whom. I hope that added info helps out!
