From this page, vendor can alter what a particular staff can see on his/her dashboard simply by enabling/disabling the checkboxes.

3. Vendor Staff Login & Dashboard

When a vendor creates a new staff on his dashboard, the staff will receive a verification email along with his username and the option to change his password. Using his username and password, staff will be able to login to his dashboard.

The login and dashboard page is same as the vendor page, except with different access permissions as selected by the vendor himself.
