Creating Job Roles


Account owners and admins can create job roles. For admins on Enterprise accounts, this right may be disabled.

Creating a job role adds a special grouping category in your account. You’ll be able to group your employees according to their role in the company, e.g., “developer,” “consultant,” “designer,” etc.
