User roles & permissions
BEE Pro becomes Beefree
We're still the same design suite you know and love, just with a new name. Our team is working hard to update our documentation, but you might still see some information or screenshots that are out of date.
This article applies to the Team and Enterprise plans.
Leveraging User Roles and Permissions in your Email Workflow
Beefree helps you improve your email creation workflow by letting you add multiple users. You can also configure what they can and cannot do.
For example, how can you prevent a junior editor from modifying important content? And what if you didn't want a new employee to have access to important projects or clients? That's exactly the kind of thing that roles and permissions can help you accomplish.
Keep in mind that there are two types of users in Beefree: members and viewers. When working with members, there are several user roles you can assign them. However, viewers are a unique type of user; their role is built directly into their user type.
Enterprise subscribers can also use Advanced Permissions to limit a user's editing permissions.
Roles determine what users can or cannot do in Beefree.
To assign roles to your members, visit the Manage users section of your account. The link is available in the top-right drop-down menu. Note that this section is only available to the owner and admins.
Click on the member that you want to edit.
The Role drop-down menu indicates the role assigned to that member. You can choose the role when you create a new member, or by editing an existing member.
Assigning roles to new members
If you want to add a new member to your team, click Invite a new team member!
Fill in the form where you can set which workspaces they will have access to. Once complete, you can click Invite to send the invitation. If you need to invite another member immediately, click Invite & assign next to do so.
The viewer is unique because the role is tied directly to the user type.
Viewers must be invited by using the Invite a viewer button.
A viewer's role cannot be changed unless they are upgraded to a member, which is a paid type of user. Only the account owner can upgrade a viewer to a member.
For more information on Viewers, please refer to Working with Viewers in Beefree.
Each role has a default set of permissions that define what they can or cannot do in Beefree.
