Admin roles

Front has three levels of users: Company Admins, Team Admins, and Team Members. As an admin, you have access to features and settings that Team Members do not. Below is an explanation of each level and the features admins can access.

Admins can also define user roles with a customized set of permissions, like allowing certain users the ability to create rules or restricting them from responding to messages. 

Team Member

Team Members can access only individual settings. They do not have access to Team settings.

Team Admin

Team Admins control their Team and Team settings. They can add an existing teammate or invite a new teammate to their Team. See below for list of admin permissions. 

Company Admin

Company Admins control their company’s Front account. One account can consist of many Teams. Only Company Admins can create Teams. They have all rights that Team Admins have. See below for list of admin permissions. Company Admins can manage billing. Billing is unified across all workspaces. That is, if one employee has access to three Teams, you’re only billed for one employee. 

Team Admins and Company Admins have access to the following features:

Invite teammates

Front is more fun with all of your teammates! Only admins can invite teammates to join the company Front account.

Team inboxes

Share conversations from any channel: Email, SMS, Twitter, Facebook, and more. Only admins can create team inboxes and can grant teammates access to them. 

Rules

Automate your workflows to save time and increase efficiency. Only admins can create rules for team inboxes, but Team Members can create rules for their individual inbox.

Integrations

Connect other tools you use with Front. Only admins can enable integrations for their teams, but Team Members can use the integration once it's been enabled. 

Caveat: If you are on Enterprise, which allow multiple teams, then the integrations will be only available to the company admin, not team admin. Integrations are enabled for the whole company, which is why only company admins can access them.

Analytics

Gain insight into your success metrics by inbox, teammates, tags, and customers.

*The analytics tab will only be visible for team admins. Even if you have global admin access enabled please make sure to also choose team admin as a setting for the correct team to view the analytics tab.

  • Hi there,

    Is there a way to customise an integration that an Admin sets for their team member, or does the individual have to customise the Integration themselves?

  • Rudy McGee Hi Rudy, only admins can enable the integrations for your team and there isn't a way to customize the integrations themselves.
