Egress offers business users the ability to assign individual roles to members of their account. This enables centralized administration including account billing to be distributed across a variety of user roles within the system. The following roles are currently available
This prevents the affected user from even signing into the client – meaning they will not be able to send or receive packages.
- Limited User
As an Egress Limited user, you're only able to access secure packages that have been associated with you. If your account has been assigned a limited user role you will be unable to create your own packages to send to other people.
An Egress Author is a type of user who can create and share secure packages using the Egress Client. As first-time users are given a number of credits for free, everyone who signs up for an Egress ID is automatically an author until these credits are used. If you are a member of an Egress Business account, an author entitles you to create and share unlimited packages.
As an Egress Auditor, you are not only able to create and share Egress Client packages, but also able to view packages created by any Egress user account listed under the same organization.
- Power User
As an Egress Power User, you are not only able to create and share packages, but also able to view and modify packages by any Egress user account listed under the same organization.
As an Egress Administrator, you have full unrestricted access to packages and users listed under the same organization. The Administrator also can modify existing individual roles as well as remove legacy user accounts from the system.
