Manage User Roles & Permissions

Every user in your impact.com account has a role, and each one has a different level of permissions. Users can be invited and assigned a predefined role, or you can create a custom role for them.

User access can be configured on a per-product and per-program basis, meaning if you use multiple impact.com products or manage multiple programs, you can assign users to access only the things they need.

Note

Only Account Administrators or Custom role users with the "Account Users" permission can manage Account User settings.

View Account Users settings

  1. In the bottom left navigation bar, select [Menu] → Settings.

  2. On the left side under General, select Account Users.

  3. From here, you can either invite new users using the Invite button in the upper-right, or navigate to the Actions column in the row of the user you want to edit and select [Drop-down menu] → Edit Access Rights.

Roles & permissions FAQs

Can a user have more than one role?

Users can only have one defined role (e.g., Performance Marketing Manager, Custom, etc.). Use the "Custom" user role if you want to modify permissions for a user.

What's the difference between View and Manage permissions?

Generally, View level permission only allows a user to read the content on a screen while Manage level permission allows a user to create, read, update, and delete on a screen.
