Adding or Deleting Users

 

In Act-On, you can add admin users, marketing users, and sales users as needed. You can also remove or change user licenses at any time.

Make sure to choose the relevant user type:

  • Administrators define account policies, user profiles & privileges, and designate email launch approvals
  • Marketing users create, manage, and send content based on privileges set by the Administrator
  • Sales users view website prospects and send 1-to-1 emails through Act-On 

Learn more about user types

  1. Go to Settings > Users > Marketing Users
  2. Click Add Marketing User, enter their information, and click Add User to confirm
  3. Act-On will send the new user a validation email
  4. The new user must click the email link to receive a temporary password and log in for the first time

Note: Your Act-On account is licensed for a specific number of marketing users. Each license can be used for either a marketing admin or user, so it's important to consider who needs access.

  1. Go to Settings > Users
  2. Go to the Privileges tab and make sure the Admin box is unchecked for that user
    Note: If you do not remove admin privileges first, the user cannot be deleted.
  3. Go to the Marketing Users tab
  4. Hover over the user you wish to delete and click the red x
  5. Click OK to confirm deleting the user

To create an admin user, add a marketing user and then set their privileges as follows.

  1. Go to Settings > Users > Privileges
  2. Check boxes for access to be an admin, manage lists, manage content, and manage programs
  3. Choose from the list to allow marketing users to launch email campaigns or require approvals first
