For a higher security level, you can assign roles to your company employees that you invite to the Lano platform. Depending on the assigned roles, your team members will have access to certain functions relevant to the successful performance of their responsibilities.
Roles in Lano

Project managers have full access to:

Assigning roles and “financial approval” to your employees
Step 1: To assign roles to your team members, select “My Company” in the bottom left of the menu bar.
Step 2: From there, you will see a list of Team Members that you invited and their respective roles. You can modify their roles or invite another company employee by clicking on “invite team member”.
Step 3: On this page, your team members can be assigned the right to approve and complete the invoices. To assign this right, select the team member and activate the slider “Financial Approver” on the right side.
Please note: Only team members with access to Team Members in Lano can assign roles and financial approval.
Assigning your project managers to groups
On the Lano platform, it is also possible to assign your project managers to see and work only with certain groups of freelancers.
Step 1: Click on the Settings > My Network > General and make sure that “Team member only has access to partners of a certain group” is ticked. Click on “edit” in the upper right corner to activate the feature if that is needed.
Step 2: Go to My Company > Team Members and select a project panager by clicking on the person’s name. The team members' details will appear on the right side.
Step 3: Activate the slider “Restrict networking access to selected groups” and then choose the groups that your project manager will work with.
