Portfolio Users

What is a portfolio user?  Kudocs offers professional advisor customers a portfolio tool to manage all their customer companies in one place.  As professional advisors often have multiple users within their organisation to whom they want to grant access to Kudocs, rather than adding them as a user to each company in the portfolio one-by-one, they can add them as a portfolio user, which gives them access to multiple companies at once.

 

How do portfolio users relate to company users?  A portfolio user has rights at the portfolio level and at the company level.  What level of company user rights depends on the type of portfolio user permission granted:

  • Portfolio Admin

Portfolio level: Can edit portfolio settings, invite new portfolio users and edit portfolio user permissions. Has access to all companies in the portfolio. Can add existing and incorporate new companies to the portfolio. Can view and edit all draft incorporations being worked on by other portfolio users.

Company level: Has Admin user rights for all companies in the portfolio (see Settings>Users within a company for details on Admin user rights).

  • Portfolio Member (all companies)

Portfolio level: Has access to all companies in the portfolio (in the portfolio already, or added in the future). Part of the Portfolio Member user setting (controlled by a Portfolio Admin) is whether the user can add existing and incorporate new companies to the portfolio and can view and edit all draft incorporations being worked on by other portfolio users.

Company level: Has Admin user rights for companies in the portfolio (see Settings>Users within a company for details on Admin user rights).

  • Portfolio Member (selected companies)

Portfolio level: Has access only to companies in the portfolio selected by Portfolio Admin. Part of the Portfolio Member user setting (controlled by a Portfolio Admin) is whether the user can add existing and incorporate new companies to the portfolio.

Company level: Has Admin user rights for companies in the portfolio (see Settings>Users within a company for details on Admin user rights).

  • Portfolio Viewer

Portfolio level: Has access only to companies in the portfolio selected by Portfolio Admin.

Company level: Has Read (all) user rights for all companies in the portfolio (see Settings>Users within a company for details on Read (all) user rights).
