This is simply not going to work for many agencies. Many are using connections through partner-collaborator account access.
Having a staff account won't work in the log run:
- Clients wont understand why theres a need
- Having clients create a staff account is tough
- Having a staff account simply to manage themes is not efficient... we'd have a partner-collaborator login and then a staff account
I was really excited for this feature, but given its gimped to staff accounts, this won't ever work and thats sad to see.
Completely agree with @osiset.
Is there a plan to fix this in the near future? we're keen to switch our stores over to the Github integration asap but with the bizarre staff account limitation it's not possible, if the staff account issue can't be fixed can you guys consider giving an additional staff seat to plans (in particular the Basic plan who only get 2!) in the meantime so we can start using it?
It doesn't seem right to ask the store owner to free up one of their 2 staff accounts so their developer can use a Github integration.
Can we at least get some kind of explanation as to why Shopify have chosen to go down this route?
