Permissions give your admins and users access to different components of the SchoolAdmin system. They can be configured by any System Admin. To learn more about how to configure Admin Accounts and permissions in general, click here.

The Financial permission is commonly used in conjunction with Enrollment permissions to further refine access to sensitive information.
