FAQ: What is the difference between a user, guest and lite user?

    Users in this account, Users in other accounts, Lite Users and Guests are the four types of contacts you can find on the People page of your account:

    • Users in your account
    1.  Have the ability to login to Ziflow within your organization's account.
    2. Account administrators can assign different levels of permissions to users to control their ability to view and manage content within the account. Each user invited to your Ziflow account is counted as one license (seat).
    3. Users can create/manage proofs, invite new reviewers, create Zibots, and more!
    4. Users have their own profile where they can add/edit personal information and adjust their default settings such as time-zone, notification preferences etc.
    • Users in other accounts
    1. Have their own Ziflow login in another organization's account (not your own).
    2. Users in other accounts can still be invited to review and/or approve a proof within your account, but they won't be allowed to access your account or perform any changes there (for example, they will not be able to manage the proof).
    • Lite Users
    1.  Have the ability to login to Ziflow within your organization's account.
    2. These contacts do not have any permissions in your account so they are not able to create or manage content.
    3. Lite users may be treated as guests but with an access to your Ziflow dashboard. They can access proofs and folders where they've been invited to.
    4. Lite users have their own profile where they can add/edit personal information and adjust their default settings such as time-zone, notification preferences etc.
    • Guests
    1. Do not have their own Ziflow login and are not able to log into the account.
    2. Guests can access, view,  review and approve, and share proofs that are explicitly shared with them (using URL sent in a Ziflow email). More information on sharing proofs can be found here.
    3. You can have as many guest reviewers added to your account as you want. Guests are unlimited for every edition of Ziflow.

    Please have a look at the article explaining how to invite new users/guests to your account.
