Add and manage account users

Adding and managing account users is user-friendly in Authorized Buyers

You can give users access to your Authorized Buyers account and assigned a role, which controls their ability to access Authorized Buyer features. Account users with the "Administrator" role can add users and manage their roles.

Add an account user

  1. Sign in to Authorized Buyers.

  2. Click admin Admin and then Account users.
  3. Click New user.
  4. In the "New user" window, enter the email address of the new user.
    It is possible for an individual Google login to be associated with more than one account. Users with access to multiple accounts can easily switch between accounts in the Authorized Buyers interface. Learn more about accessing multiple accounts from a single login.
  5. Select from the available account user roles.
  6. Click Save.

Once the new user information has been saved, an invitation will be emailed to the address entered. The user is  prompted, via the invite, to accept and agree to the terms of service and privacy policy.

Re-send an account user invitation

You can re-send an invitation to a previously added account user. This is helpful if the original invite was lost or accidentally deleted.

  1. Sign in to Authorized Buyers.

  2. ​Click admin Admin and then Account users.

  3. Select the user, with Status "Pending", from the list of "Account users".

  4. Click "Re-invite".

    You can only re-send invites to pending users. To edit or enable an account user, see Manage account users.

New user accounts are pending until the user clicks to accept the email invitation, enters the requested credentials, and accepts the terms of service and privacy policy.
