Note: This is for Premium Business subscribers only
The subscriber of a Premium Business account may create and manage multiple user accounts. These user accounts are assigned different roles that define their permissions within the Premium Business account. Each user account logs in through the same manner as the subscriber using a user name and password.
All user accounts are considered "trusted" users. While these user accounts may have different sets of privileges, defined by their roles, all user accounts can view all photos including protected photos (in the Edit view or in the Visitor view) as well as download originals. All user accounts may also place orders at base prices.
Once a user account is created (see below) and activated by the user, accounts can be modified by the Subscriber and Partner user account. Beyond modifying the full name, e-mail, user name, and role, here are other options:
- Deactivating User Accounts
- Resetting User Account Password
- Edit Group and Gallery Ownership
- Deleting User Accounts
User Account Roles
The following roles will be available for subscriber to assign to user accounts:
Partners have full access to all account areas except for making changes to the subscription level and personal profile information. Partners may also create other user accounts.
Assistants have access to most account features, including managing all photos and galleries, changing the ownership of photos, selling features, shared favorites, and clients list. However, assistants cannot customize the website or manage user accounts.
Photographers can manage all account photos and galleries, but they have no access to selling features, website customization, or changing the ownership of photos.
Contributing photographers can manage photos only within the assigned groups or galleries. They cannot customize the website and have no access to clients list, shared favorites, or selling features. They do not have access to e-mail communication features, contact list, and shared favorites.
Accountants can only access the account statement, selling reports, and subscription information. Accountants cannot manage photos.
