Users are members of your teams using Samespace, either through the dock or web interface. Samespace has four predefined user roles, each with specific capabilities.

User Roles and Privileges:

Admin: This role is the superuser of your Space account. Only the Administrator can view analytics and reports of all teams.

Manager: This role can monitor and coach team members, access analytics, add or remove members, and change inbound/outbound settings. Managers can also assign supervisor and agent role privileges to a user.

Supervisor: This role can monitor and coach team members, access analytics, add or remove members, and change inbound/outbound settings for their team.

Agent: This role has access to making and receiving calls and chats. Agents do not have access to the web app.

How to Invite Users to Space:

You can add users to your space in two ways: manually inviting individual users or adding multiple users simultaneously.

Option 1: Manual Invite:

Step 1: Navigate to the "Users and Team" section in your Samespace account and click on the "Invite" button. Step 2: Add the necessary details and click on the "Invite" button. While inviting users, the admin can decide the privilege for new users as well as assign teams.

Option 2: Bulk Upload:

Step 1: Navigate to the "Users and Team" section in your Samespace account and click on the "Invite" button. Step 2: Upload a CSV file containing the name and email addresses of the users to be added to the platform, select their team and roles, and click "Invite".

Note: When using the upload option, you can only assign one kind of role to all the users mentioned on the CSV file. You can later edit and change the privileges for users individually.

Important: While adding user roles, it is mandatory to fill the "Teams" field.

The invited user will receive an email from Samespace. The invited user must create an account by providing basic info like first name, last name, and password. Depending on the user privilege, invited users will be redirected to Samespace or Chrome Store.

How to Edit Users Information on Space:

The user profile can be edited in the "Users + Team" section. Navigate to the "Users" section and double click on the user name for whom the information needs to be updated.
