View or add people

To see who manages your Brand Account or to invite new people:

  1. Go to your Brand Accounts page in My Account.
  2. Choose the account you want to manage.
  3. Select Manage permissions. You'll see a list of people who can manage the account.
  4. To invite new people, choose Invite new users Ask people to manage.
  5. Enter their email addresses.
  6. Below their names, choose their role:
    • Owners can take the most actions, and they control who manages the account. An account must have one primary owner.
    • Managers can use Google services that support Brand Accounts, like share photos on Google Photos or post videos on YouTube.
    • Communications managers can do the same things as Managers, but they can't use YouTube.
  7. Select Invite and then Done.

People you invite will get an email with an "Accept invitation" option.

Change roles or remove people

  1. Go to your Brand Accounts page in My Account.
  2. Choose the account you want to manage.
  3. Select Manage permissions. You'll see a list of people who can manage the account.
  4. From here you can:
    • Change someone's role: Next to the person's name, select their current role, then choose a new role.
    • Remove someone: Next to the person's name, select Remove Remove. Confirm your choice if asked.
  5. Select Done.

You can remove yourself as an owner or manager.

Note: If you're the primary owner and want to leave the account, you first need to change another person's role to "Primary owner."
