In the accounting and finance access rights section, there are three options: Invoicing and payment, accountant and financial manager.

Question: What rights apply to each? In the hierarchy, one should believe that financial manager should override accountant while accountant should override invoicing and payment? am i correct? if yes, then as admin I can pick financial manager so that all three options are available. If wrong, then, i am totally in the dark about the options.

Yes, the Financial Manager has the highest level of permissions because:

Any user added to the Financial Manager group will also be added to the Accountant group.

Any user added to the Accountant group will also be added to the Invoicing & Payments group.

Any user added to the Invoicing & Payments group will also be added to the Payments group.

thanks, ray.
