For those of you with contractors, or are in situations where your team members might not appreciate that there’s a lot of hidden costs involved in running the business, Accelo allows you to control the visibility of financial data on a per-user basis.
The financial visibility permission will allow a user to see not only the rates which your users are charged at, but the monetary values of Projects, Issues and their budgets. Users without this permission will see an hour value in place of the dollar value when viewing budgets and budget usage.
To change this setting, admin users can navigate to the User Page whom you would like to change, and select Edit <User> from the taskbar.
Under the User Access section you'll find the Financial Visibility setting:
The default setting is for a user to View Hours and Billable Rates - since that is what all pre-existing users automatically had. So to hide all financial details from a user, select the View Hours Only option, and then Save the page.
Note: This setting does not prevent users from being able to access attachments that may have financial data. You will need to set permissions for attachments separately.
There are a significant number of places where this setting takes effect. Most of them are documented below:
Any billable rates tied to an Activity/Work Entry will be hidden (including their own).
Any progression actions related to editing rates, budgets, approving time or invoicing will be either automatically skipped, or the user will be informed that they must skip this step as they do not have the permissions to see it.
Since there are already permissions controls in place for accessing the administration area, we have not added many extra restrictions. However, as a precaution:
