How to Create a New Profile in vTiger

Review on how to create a new profile on your vTiger website

A good way of restricting access to different areas on your vTiger website is to create different profiles. You can specify the actions, available modules and features for a particular profile and restrict access to others for it as well. Then, you can assign a profile to a particular role on your website. When you do so, the available actions for the profile will be applied to all users in that role.


To create a new profile on your vTiger website, you need to log into your website as administrator. Navigate to the Settings icon and then CRM Settings.
