In Zoho Creator, a user is one who manages records, their own or those shared by other users, within the organization. In addition to accessing the Creator data, some of the users can perform administrative functions for smooth running of the Creator account.
Based on the editions and the user licenses, you can add users in Zoho Creator. In the Free Edition, you can add up to 3 users. In the other editions, the number of users that you can add is based on the user licenses purchased. Each user can sign in to their account with an email address and password. Every user is given a role and profile. The profile determines what features a user is allowed to access and the role determines what data the user can access based on the organization's hierarchy.
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org for any clarifications.
