Note: The difference between these two roles is that the administrator has access to the "Settings" menu. This allows an administrator to create users, master data, and subsidiary companies, which a regular user cannot.

Once you have chosen the user's role in Privacy, you will need to select which business areas the user should be linked to. If you click on "Business area(s)", the following drop-down menu will appear. A user can be linked to multiple business areas.
