When I demonstrated LiveAccounts early on to an accounting firm I get referrals from the initital response was "What about User Accounts and restricted access"?  Any plans on this front?


"User Accounts/restricting users"

Current Status: Planned
Last Changed: November 2016

Thank you all for your feedback. User access management is certainly a popular requested feature, we are pleased to let you know that our developers are targeting this in 2017.


Please continue casting your vote if you are interested in this idea, and leave any detailed suggestions to our developers in the comment section.

I can't believe this is still not implemented seeing all those posts from 2014! I need my staff to invoice, and not see our accounts. I might have to check Xero out now.

Any update on this being implemented?
