In Bigin, profiles define user permissions and control the actions the user performs within the application. Each user in the Bigin setup is assigned a profile that determines their level of access to the data in the organization. By default, Administrator and Standard profiles are available in the organization. Bigin enables users to create custom profiles as well.
