How to manage who has account access
Westpac Live allows you to easily see which of your business’s accounts your users have been given access to. Furthermore, you can specify whether users have view-only access or additionally, the ability to transact from an account.
Hover over Services & preferences and select User administration.
Select the required access level.
Click View users to see who can access and carry out banking tasks for that account.
The Access level allows you to set the permissions for all users of your business banking in relation to each account:
- No Access means that users cannot be assigned this account to view or access.
- Non-value means that users are able to do certain things such as viewing details including account balance, transaction details, statements and voucher images.
- Value means that users are able to view, create and make payments.
