Understanding Ziflow Roles and Permissions

    Summary: It is vital to understand the different roles and permissions available in your Ziflow account. There are 4 options to choose from:

    • User
    • Billing
    • Admin
    • Manager

    It's worth noting that you can grant multiple roles to the same user.

    Only account admins are able to assign roles. 

    NOTE: The account Owner is automatically assigned to the subscriber. This person will be given all 4 roles listed in the table. If you need to transfer the Account Owner role please visit the following Help Center article.

    If you assign a person “User, Billing, Manager & Admin” roles, they will effectively have full permissions to match that of the Account Owner.

    Use the table below to determine what roles/permissions you wish to grant your registered Ziflow users.
