is there a way i an give my employees access to add products to my site without seeing orders? i just want them to be able to do that .
Yes, you are able to do that. You should create the new administrator membership on the “Memberships” page (the link to this page is in the “Users” side box on the left of your CS-Cart admin panel), then click on the “Privileges” link, enable the desired options (you should enable all options under the “Catalog” section and disable all options under the “Orders” section) and click on the “Update” button. After that you should sign up the desired users to this membership.
I hope this is clear.
