Organization permissions in Organization Settings
At the organization level, there are four categories of permissions: Stores, Users, Analytics overview, and Billing. These permissions let staff members make changes to all the stores in your organization, including in stores where those users don't have store-level permissions.
For example, if you have four stores in your organization, then you can give a staff member the Users permission, and access to only one of the four stores. In this case, that staff member can manage user access, permissions, and security settings, including in stores where that staff member doesn't have store-level permissions.
Organization permissions are separate from store permissions. Some permissions let staff do things that can't be done from a store's Shopify admin, such as create a new store. Other permissions let staff perform actions that typically only a store's owner can perform, such as give staff members access to a store.
