J Shop Staff Member Notice

As it currently stands, we have an overlap of permissions. Due to the transition of version 1 to version 2, a lot has changed in the backend operations. Prior to this release, each shop had its own series of parent-level permissions and child-level permissions. This was redundant and has been forgone. However, that being said J1 and J7 may notice in the exchange of tabs that there may be a link overlap or two. (Mainly J7).

I'm aware of this as it actively presents complications for both J7 and J9, and rapidly working to resolve this.

Permission J1 J7 J9 Administration

As it currently stands for permissions as of V2. Now, due to the old overlap of v1, some of these functionalities are still condensed to admin.{permission}, and has caused some conflicts internally. I hope to have this resolved ASAP, and ideally before the new year.

Random Ranting

Now, with all that out of the way; we've got a lot of pretty awesome changes in the pipeline. Please bear with me as we get these features rolled out, I'll be on LOA for the next two months while I am in Washington. (The state, not DC.) While there, I actively whenever I have time working on the features that can be found on our Trello which can be found here;

I'll actively update the Trello as I progress, we're currently on version 2.0.3, and this will actively be pulled across.
