Creator Help

Manage Profiles

In Zoho Creator, the profile function controls the permission to access the creator forms, reports and pages, import permissions to import data to the forms and export permissions to export data. Users associated to the profile can access the functions that are assigned to them. Three profiles are provided by default.

  • Administrator Profile: This profile has access to all the features in the Zoho Creator account.
  • Member Profile:  This profile will not have administrative permissions.
  • User Profile: This profile will only have add and view permissions. 


  • This feature is available only for new accounts created after April 2014. We are currently working on migrating the old accounts to support this feature. Note that migration is taking place on request basis. Please contact for any clarifications.
