Using the Roles & Permissions tab, you can define and assign specific responsibilities and access levels for your team members. This ensures a clear team structure and keeps sensitive information and critical functions accessible only to authorized personnel.

Some permissions feature additional configurations—'Client' or 'My'. This distinction allows for more granular control, such as enabling a user to run sequences they created ('My') versus those created by any team member ('Client').
