Manage users and access levels for your manager account

From your manager account’s 'Access and security' menu, you can invite and manage users for your manager account.

This article shows you how to manage users and access levels for your manager account. For more background, you can read 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.

Instructions

  1. Sign in to your Google Ads manager account.
  2. Click the gear icon Tools and setting menu icon [Gear]  in the upper right-hand corner of your account.
  3. Under 'Account', click Access and security.
  4. Find your email address and check the 'Access level' column.

  5. Under 'Account', your manager account is selected by default as the account that you’re inviting users to. You can click the drop-down menu to invite users to other accounts you manage.

You'll be notified when your invitee responds.
