We're thrilled to unveil a major enhancement to the EasyPost Dashboard that we hope will improve the way you manage your shipping operations. Say hello to the power of new user roles within the in the EasyPost Dashboard!
Streamlined shipping for every employee
Now, you can assign distinct roles to new users joining your EasyPost Dashboard—the "Shipper Agent" and the "User." This opens up many new possibilities for efficient and secure shipping.
With the "Shipper Agent" role, your team members can access a streamlined shipping experience within EasyPost. Their access is limited to only essential tabs, specifically designed for purchasing shipping labels. It's the perfect solution for anyone in your organization who needs a swift and cost-effective way to handle shipping tasks. Users in this bucket could be:
- Event planners shipping materials for an event
- People managers shipping swag for new employees
- Office managers shipping office supplies
- Any other employee who has shipping needs
On the other hand, the "User" role offers comprehensive access to all tabs within the EasyPost Dashboard, except the , which is reserved only for the primary account owner (the first user who created your EasyPost account). Within the , you can effortlessly add, manage, and remove users, ensuring smooth account management.
Why we built it
So, why did we bring this exciting feature to life? We understand that centralizing your shipping processes securely is paramount. Customers have shared with us that they often have people on their team who need access to EasyPost’s shipping features, but should not have access to see sensitive company information. Equipped as “Shipper Agents,” your team can purchase shipping labels using the intuitive , without jeopardizing any security protocols. And they can take advantage of your company's shipping rates and preferred billing methods set up in EasyPost saving you time and money on shipping.
By restricting access to sensitive tabs like billing and carriers from “Shipper Agents”, we've amplified security. The process of adding new users to EasyPost is now fortified, ensuring your sensitive data remains under lock and key.
