There is no point to have an additional app to fix what QB can easily do.
The role of this new employee is admin. There is no reason to access the purchase prices and margins. What I want is to give him/her access to the create invoices, check stock levels and follow up payments
I wanted to share some information in the hope that you can use this for your QuickBooks file.
You are able to edit the type of access each of your users in QuickBooks are allowed to see/edit.
Log into Quickbooks and go to Settings > Manage Users.
From here you are able to select each individual user and select Edit, you will be able to stipulate what you want, and don't want the user to see and/or do.

Let us know if you needed further support.
I've seen the options before but even for the Standard User the numbers are opened (purchase prices).
I need a lower level such as "Stander User light". I need to make sure an admin person doesnt have access to any $$$ rather than sales price.
This person cannot calculate margins
How can I get this from QB?
When you create the user in QuickBooks, ensure that you have only ticked Customers when assigning the Standard User role. This will disable any feature to do with purchases/expenses (including purchase price). In the Products and Services page, they will also only be able to see the Sales price, and they also cannot run any reports that mention costing or purchases.
I knew about the steps you suggested me, by the result wasn't satisfatory.... the standard user has plenty of privilegies and can navigate through costs as long as he/she wishes.
Please check the file attached with the options selected and the possibility to check/uncheck the costs box at any time under Products & Services for this standard user.
I just need to hide a couple of fields. Hope QB can help me

Just go to the Gear > Feedback. (I already did. Anyway, if I dont have this option available sometime soon, it will be decisive for me to migrate from QB. MYOB is offering this solution and I need to hire a person with "real" limited access.)
