Owners and managers of business accounts
Business accounts make it easier for multiple administrators to manage a set of locations. There are two types of business account users: owners and managers.
Looking for owners and managers of a listing, rather than a business account? Click here.
Business accounts can have multiple owners, but only one primary owner. Owners and primary owners have the same capabilities, but primary owners can’t remove themselves from a business account until they transfer their primary ownership to another user.
Google Groups can't be added as managers or owners of business accounts.
Business account managers are able to add, edit, and delete all of the locations in the business account. They can also add and remove managers of individual locations.
Business account managers can only be added to the account by a business account owner. Google Groups can't be added as managers or owners of listings.
When you sign in to your account, you'll see the "Accounts you own or manage" page. If you're an owner or manager of a business account, you'll see a note about your level of access below the business account name: either "Business account you own" or “Business account you manage".
Here's a summary of the different capabilities of business account owners and business account managers:
|Capability||Account owner||Account manager|
|Add and remove business account managers|
|Delete business account|
|Transfer business account ownership|
|Add, edit, and delete locations in the account|
|Transfer ownership of locations to a different business account|

Owners and managers of individual locations
Just as accounts have owners and managers, individual locations can have multiple users including owners, managers, and communications managers. People who aren't owners or managers of the business account can be invited to own or manage individual locations.
