Position Levels

You can access your company’s position levels if you’re an Admin or have access to Manage Company Settings, by going to Company Settings > Positions.

There are four default position levels in busybusy: Admin, Manager, Supervisor, and Employee. You can assign users to any position level and assign each position level to as many users as you’d like.

The permissions within the Positions settings enable certain features you may not want everyone in your business to access, like editing other employees' time, seeing wages, or payroll reports.

You can create a new custom position level and customize each position level if you are subscribed to the Pro version of busybusy. However, you cannot modify the Admin position level; Admins always have access to every feature.

Pro Account Position Levels

Customize Each Position Level

The default Pro account permission levels are the same as the free, but you can fully customize what you want each permission level to have access to. Again, you cannot modify the Admin position level; Admins always have access to everything. However, you can have more than one Admin.

Create a New Position 

There are times when your organization needs more position levels for your team members. You can create a new position and customize the permissions level and assign it to one or multiple users. Keep in mind the positions are in hierarchical order; make sure you drag that permission level up or down on the list.

Note: Our position levels are in a hierarchical order from top to bottom.
