As a Brightflag Administrator, you'll have access to everything within your company's instance.

Brightflag tip: Remember that the role you assign a user will dictate what they can see on Brightflag. If in doubt, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for advice.
Brightflag tip: Remember that there are two types of vendor access levels on Brightflag – Administrator Vendor User and Ordinary Vendor User. The Administrator user can view all matters for their office and create other ordinary vendor users. We advise giving most vendor users admin access so that they have visibility over everything related to their vendor.
Brightflag tip: If you create a Department Overview User, they will be able to view all matters/invoices assigned to that department. You don't necessarily need to map your company's department/sub-departments to Brightflag, you can use any type of structure that's most useful for your business needs.
Brightflag tip: Information from custom matter fields feeds into reporting. This can be useful for tracking key data points across your matters.

Custom Matter Categories
- If the default names for matter categories in Brightflag don't suit your business needs, you can customise them. This will make it easier for you and your vendors to know which category to choose when creating a matter. To customise the names of matter categories, reach out to email@example.com who can do the configuration for you.
