Options – Admin Tools

The options screen now includes Team settings to allow you to manage users within your organisation. See the Organisation Permissions table for an overview of access for each permission type:

Owner & Admin Tools

Owner and Admin users can access team options under the Admin Tools header.

Company Details is available to regular users but only editable by Owners and Admins.

Any user type may access the Contractors menu.


Use this function to invite users to join your organisation.

Invited users will receive an email notification and a pop-up on their home screen after they create an account and login.

Ensure the invite email matches their account email.

Organisation User Management

New users that accept your invite will be automatically added as Active Users. Primary Owners and Admin Users can then modify access rights for these users or update their profile information as well as disable their accounts.

The four types of users are:

  1. Primary Owner (there can only be one)
  2. Admin Users
  3. Active Users
  4. Disabled Users

Disabled users will not count towards your usage quota.

Project Options

Each project has its own security to allow you to nominate who has access to edit information.

Project Owners are able to use the Modify Team option to assign additional project owners or inspectors to any synced project.

Projects have two level of security that may be applied:

  1. Project Owners
  2. Inspectors

Check the Project Permissions table for an overview on what each role provides access to.
