User Preventions

Owners and Admins have access to all subscriptions assets and can manage other user accounts.


Team Members can join team catalogs but cannot manage user accounts. Restrictions are optional for Team Members. You can prevent access to team pitch management and prevent editing of publishing information. If you would like a Team Member to have company wide access, you can click the checkbox to change it to see everyone's pitches.


Artists cannot be added to team catalogs or given access to the global pitch log. You can prevent Artists from editing publishing information. If you would like an Artist to see the all pitches company wide, you need to change their user role.
