Team Account Roles and Permissions

You are here:
< All Topics

Signority uses team account roles and permissions to ensure teams are secure and managed. When you first sign up for an account, you’ll have full account permissions. After you join a team, you may have less visibility of functions such as billing information or account deletion options, but you’ll always be able to send, receive and managed documents. This article goes over the differences between the various team account roles available and what kind of permission each one will have.

Team Account Roles: Regular Users

Regular Users can send, receive and share documents. They cannot view billing information nor do they have full visibility of the entire team’s work. They aren’t able to upgrade the plan either. However, they have full access to the eSignature platform and can create and send documents, templates, and other workflows.
New members of a team are Regular Users by default.

Team Account Roles: Team Administrators

Team Admins are in a subteam. Team Admins have the rights of Regular Team Members, in addition to being able to view the subteam’s work and adding or removing Regular Team Members. They have full rights to manage their subteam. There can be multiple Team Admins on a subteam.

Team Account Roles: Doc Administrators

Doc Admins are also located within a subteam. They are able to view shared documents in other subteams that they have been given access to. However, they are not able to add team members to their team. There can be multiple Doc Administrators on a subteam.

To view what teams are accessible to a Doc Administrator, go to the team listing under “Team”, and click on the group icon and then “View Accessible Teams”

 

Team Account Roles: Super Administrators

Super Admins are in the root team. They have the same permissions as the Billing Admin except for the payment responsibility. Super Admin can view all team members and subteams and their activities. S/he can add or remove Team Members for the corporate account and move team members between the root team and subteams. A Super Admin can also set up company branding and generate an API key for his/her account. In addition, a Super Admin can configure Global Profile Settings for subteams. A Super Admin can share documents and templates to the root team, but cannot access other team members’ documents and templates if they have not been shared. However, a Super Admin does have the ability to transfer documents of another team member to another account, including his/her own account. Multiple Super Admins are allowed in one account.

Team Account Roles: Billing Administrators

Billing Administrators manage the entire team. They have the rights of Super Admins and Team Admins, and can also manage billing and the service plan. They have the ability to upgrade plans and have access to all the invoices tied to the account and team.

When the first user signs up a plan, the user is automatically set as the Billing Admin under the Root team. A team can only have one Billing Administrator.
