Restrict staff member access to development & managed stores with Store access controls


Store access controls adds enhanced workflows that let you work more securely on development stores, managed stores, and Plus Sandbox stores with your team and contractors.

Owners and staff members with the Manage members permission can now:

  • Specify a level of access, for each type of store, for a staff member. You can select between no access, access to all stores, or access to specific stores. A staff member can log in to a store only when they’ve been allowed access.
  • Allow select staff members to add, archive, or transfer ownership of stores.
  • Provide access to a specific store for a staff member from the Team or Stores section of the Partner Dashboard.

To get started, head over to the Team section of the Partner Dashboard, and open up any team member’s profile. Learn more about the features in our Help documentation.
