  • Create email templates
  • Can dismiss Good morning items
  • Can send Broadcast bulk emails
  • Can only merge duplicate contacts if they added the contacts
  • Cannot export data unless they are granted export rights by an admin or the Account Owner
  • Cannot create groups
  • Cannot create custom fields
  • Cannot edit notes/emails or delete contacts added by others
  • Cannot invite users or view any account information

How do you know if you're an Account Owner, Admin, or User?

In the right hand corner of your account, you will find an  Account & settings link. If you do not see this link, you're not the Account Owner.

Admins and users will find a  Settings link in the right corner of the account. The amount of options listed under the Settings link indicates which role you have in the account.

Admins have options for:  My Info, Templates, Users, Groups, Custom Fields, Logo and Display, and Referrals.

Users only have options for:  My Info, Templates, and Referrals.
