How to assign a Messenger channel to a user role?

All team members under the user role will be automatically added to this Messenger channel. To do so, please go to the ‘ROLES’ section on the company Settings tab in semilimes’ user portal, as highlighted in the screenshot below:
- Click on the ‘+’ button to create a new role.
- Click on the dropdown icon of an existing role to which you may want to add a Messenger channel.
- Showing all the Messenger channels available for the selected role.
- Click on the dropdown icon of a Messenger channel for which you may want to set access privileges for the role as below.
Showing the access rights for the selected Messenger channel:
Read – if activated, the users of the role can read the messages from the Messenger channel;
Write – if activated, the users of the role can write messages on the Messenger channel;
Manage Settings – if activated, the users of the role can manage settings of the Messenger channel. For example: changing the name of the Messenger channel, adding a member to the Messenger channel, etc;
Upload Files – if activated, the users of the role can upload files on the messenger channel.
If the checkbox is clicked, then all channel access rights will become activated.
If the checkbox is clicked a second time, then all channel access rights will become de-activated
You can also individually activate/deactivate channel access rights.
In this way, you can create a Messenger channel and allocate a Messenger channel to a role on semilimes.

Customer relations is a fundamental key to success for any business, regardless of size. Even the largest international companies can eventually fail if they don’t address customer complaints in a timely and reasonable manner. Sales software for managing complaints - either from customers, suppliers, partners, or anyone else having business with the company- is a streamlined approach that can directly impact reputation and (over time) the bottom line.
