Delivery/Pickup Only Users

This article assumes you have read the User Permissions help doc.

Setting a user as a Delivery/Pickup only user is ideal for staff members that need to access the Delivery schedule, but don't need to edit data or view other parts of HirePOS.

Most often, this is used for drivers that only need to access the schedule.

How to Set a User as Delivery/Pickup Only

  1. Invite your user into HirePOS as per the Invite New User help doc.
  2. Go to Setup > Preferences > Users then click on the new user.
  3. Click and expand the Roles option.
  4. Tick the Delivery/Pickup only checkbox.
  5. Save changes.

Linking your User to a Supplier

After you've set your permissions, you'll need to link them to a supplier.

In HirePOS, all drivers either internal or external, are considered Suppliers.

  1. Go to Setup > Suppliers
  2. Create a new supplier, and give it the same Email address as the Delivery/pickup user login.
  3. Go to the Other tab.
  4. Tick the Is Driver/Transport company checkbox.
  5. Save changes.
Be aware that linking Admin or General users to a delivery supplier as above will result in jobs being filtered by that driver/supplier by default.

How it's used

After you've completed the above steps, you should be able to login as this user as normal.

But instead of taking you to the HirePOS Reminders screen, you'll be taken directly to the Delivery/Pickup schedule instead.

From here, they'll see a list of the current day's jobs and can use all filters except the suppliers filter, as normal.

Remember, that while logged on as a Delivery/Pickup Only user, you'll only be able to see jobs that are specifically assigned to the Supplier you are linked to.
So, it's very important as an admin, to allocate your jobs to drivers. See Vehicle/Driver Allocations.
