All things Admin [New Layout]

Let's talk about the Admin section!

Before anything, let’s first clarify how someone is or becomes an Admin. You are an Admin if you created the account or were added by another admin. You can find the Admin section in your Avatar located on the bottom left of your screen.

Activate Users – all team members and guests on your account that have been invited and successfully activated. 

Team members – Team members can see and edit all information on main boards, and can be invited to collaborate easily on both Shareable and Private Boards. In other words, main users are your teammates or employees in your department or organization with whom you work with every day!

Guests – Guest users are users that are external to your team, such as a vendor, client, freelancer or outside consultant. Guests can only be invited to a Shareable Board/s and as such, will NOT be able to view information on Main or Private Boards. Guests must be invited one board at a time to boards in the Shareable area and will be limited to what they can see and do in your account. This amazing feature helps you to collaborate safely with guests while maintaining the security of the information stored on Main and Private Boards.

Deactivated – all team members or guests that have been deactivated from your account

Pending – Team members or guests that have been invited to the account but have not yet activated their invitation or created their login.

To view your plan and number of included team members and guests – see Billed Users under Admin > Billing.
