🔐Team Access Control & Collaboration

When handling new customers onboarding, involving KYC and KYB processes in particular, it is essential to set up the proper team-based Access Control system.

On Forest Admin gives you the ability to assign permissions based on roles (e.g., analysts, managers, admins) to ensure that users (including external contributors) only have access to the data and functions necessary for their roles, which is essential for compliance. You can set it up from your Project Settings without writing a single line of code.

Access Control

Roles and Permissions

Each Role has its own set of permissions. Thanks to that, e.g. a KYC analyst won't be able to perform actions restricted to the KYB team. You can make some actions to be only available for managers or senior specialists, others - only to external partners. Forest Admin adapts to every team setup.

What if you want to allow team members to perform actions but only under specific conditions? For example every KYB analyst needs to be able to onboard a company based in the EU. However, to be able to onboard companies located outside of the EU, your company process requires a secondary verification and a green light from the KYB team leader. Such a setup can be easily created on Forest Admin thanks to conditional approvals.

Advanced Team-based Access Control

You may take a step further and limit what different teams can see when logging in to the admin panel. If you decide to create different teams, e.g. KYC and KYB, the KYC analysts won't see the list of companies to onboard because each team has its own layout. You can also create a special team for your external contributors and limit their access even further - e.g. by disabling their access to analytics or activity logs.

Internal User Management

Project Settings also have a dedicated space to manage your team members - this is where you invite them, assign them roles and give or revoke accesses.
