What is the difference between an ‘Administrator’, ‘Team Member‘, and ‘Connection’ user types?
Administrators are users who are authorized to perform administrative and billing functions, and manage the accounts of other users within the team. In the creation of a new AWP team, the creator of the new account is the ‘Default Administrator’.
All Administrators are responsible for billing issues related to their Team Members and Connections. Administrators can, at their sole discretion, terminate the account of a Team Member or Connection.
A Team Member is a regular, unrestricted user of AWP. They may be individuals or direct employees of companies that have contracted AWP to make the services available to the team. The Default Administrator may give a Team Member ‘Administrator’ rights.
A Connection is a restricted user who has limited rights and capabilities. Connections cannot create or own Projects. Any user utilising the AWP service and who is a direct employee of an entity or organization that subscribes to the AWP service requires a Team Member seat license and may not use a Connection seat license.
What restrictions apply to ‘Connections’?
Connections are intended for individuals external to an organization but still have their own login. They can make changes and comments, and even have an agent on their computers for sync operations (if permitted). However, they do not have their own storage quota nor the ability to create or own Projects. A Team Member who wishes to share a Project with an external person or company, if permitted by policy, would typically provision Connections.
