When the account has status hidden, the account will not be visible for the customer on the customer front end. From the back office interface, the administrator will have full access to the account.
From version 2.23 are there three new statuses that you can choose from when you want to lock an account. For example, you can now select if you want to lock the account just for the end customer on the customer front and still have it opened for Admin. When opening a new account default status will be opened.
- Locked (Front): locked for the end customer front, but can still be administrated from back office and partner.
- Locked (Partner): locked for partner and customer front, but can still be administrated from back office and partner.
- Locked (Admin): locked for admin, partner, and customer front.
