New granular staff permissions for Draft orders

Previously there was one Draft orders permission gating staff access to draft orders. That single permission allows staff to view, create, edit, and delete draft orders, as well as set payment terms and process payments. Now there are 7 new, more granular staff permissions: View draft orders, Create and edit draft orders, Apply discounts, Set payment terms, Charge credit card, Mark draft orders as paid, and Delete draft orders. This increased granularity gives merchants more control over access to specific actions on draft orders.

All existing staff members who have previously been given the singular Draft orders permission will automatically have all the new permissions selected by default to ensure backward compatibility. Merchants have the option to select (or unselect) a subset of these permissions when more granular access control is needed.
