Another way to gain access to a set of company accounts is to request it form the ‘owner’. This is the alternative to the owner granting a user access directly, as described here.
Use the navigation panel to go to Company/User rights/Request company access.
Enter the ‘Company’ (case sensitive) and click on ‘OK’. If the company name is not entered correctly, a message will appear saying ‘The record does not exist’. Check that the exact company name (case sensitive) has been entered.
The owner of the accounts now needs to approve the request by going to Company/User rights/Requests for company access. Read here.
