Manager Accounts (MCC): Manage users and access levels for your manager account

This article shows you how to manage users and access levels for your manager account. You can read more about user access levels at About access levels for users invited to your manager account. If you’d like to modify ownership for your manager account, see About ownership of client accounts.

There’s always the chance that multiple users on a manager account can make conflicting changes to the same account. To avoid this issue, make sure to communicate to all users about roles and responsibilities for account management and changes to the account.
