I just need to give permission to third person (an accountant) to have access into Gnucash, instead of using it through my account.
I found some reviews about it e.g. "Multi-user capability: With GnuCash you can have multiple users, but each user has to have their own data file. Or you can have multiple users opening up the same data file, but not concurrently." 
However, what actually looking for is this exact feature that a different accounting software offer - &
is something similar to this on Gnucash or can you explain me in more details the "multi-user capability" of Gnucash

My question is about the permission/access into Gnucash by third person. Is there any option to edit user account and its access level?

I am not aware that Gnucash has any concept of user accounts, access levels, or permission/access.  Usually that is handled at the level of the operating system.

What are you trying to do that isn't working?  What operating system and gnucash version are you using?
