Limit what aditional administrators can do

It would be useful to have options for what additional administrators can do within the panel. For example, I run hosting as part of my IT company and normally it's me that does all the work in Panel, however it is often useful to have one of my staff to do some admin tasks but I don't necessarily want that person to be able to perform all tasks such as changing critical server settings.

    @Gary, we consider this improvement as quote meaningful, but age or complexity don't drive prioritity as much as votes do. This request is not getting in top20 yet, so while it is on our radar, we didn't started work on this yet. Once we start - you will see status changed to "planned" and then "started". We are trying to be transparent here.

    As of complexity, it is heavily driven by the list of operations required to be limited. Please everyone post which exact operations you would like to limit.

    Any movement on this? It doesn't seem like a particularly complex change I requested 18 months ago.

    I had to liberate many admin acces to plesk for my employees, and would be nice if some functions was able to be disabled.

    eg. Delete subscriptions.

    this feature is very important to us. we have tiered admins in our business.
    we have had issues with some admins tweaking options we do not want them to.
    part of our issues comes down to enabling a lower level admin to oversee a domain migration without having the ability to shutdown services, or reconfigure the node.

    Can we extend this request with managing the notifications they get?
    Now when you have multiple admins defined and an subscription expires every one get notified daily. That is very annoying.

    Absolutely support this, we would like to limit access to such things as :

    IP Address creation/deletion
    Services Management

    On a per admin user basis.
