There is no native function too achieve this.

But you can use admin_session_user_login_success event for this.

To implement magento event observer refer this link

then add event in your config.xml file


Then add this code in you observer file.

i.e., Path : app/code/{your-codepool}/{namespace}/{module}/Model/Observer.php

public function adminRedirect($observer)
    //get admin user id from observer
    $currentUserId = $observer->getuser()->getId();
    //get User Role
    $userRole = Mage::getModel('admin/user')->load($currentUserId)->getRole()->getRoleName();
    if($userRole == 'sales'){
             // If user role is sales then it'll redirect to the sales order list page
        $response = Mage::app()->getResponse();
    return $this;
