Can we limit POS user permissions for safer transactions?

It seems that the POS app requires an excessive amount of user permissions that are not necessary to just make a purchase transaction.  For example, why would they always need the following?:
Create/Edit/Delete products and collections
Manage Inventory
Create/Delete gift cards

Business analytics

Create/delete marketing campaigns

Create/delete discounts
Manage settings/locations

Seems like a lot of unnecessary authority to give an employee, especially temps, that can be abused or misused.

Are there ways around this?

Hi, @JohnFederkins!


Thank you for your post. I certainly understand where you're coming from, as most employees won't need access to all those areas on a day-to-day basis. This isn't something that can be further customized at the moment, but I've passed along your feedback to our developers. Feedback like this is how we determine what changes to make to our platform, so I appreciate you taking the time to share it. If this change is made, it will be included in the Shopify Changelog
