User roles and rights

Owners, administrators, and users (members/guests). The difference between their rights on the Desktop workspace.

Desktop.com defines  four different user groups:



Owner

The user who created a Free or Pro/Enterprise account

Administrator (Admin)

The user with the rights to manage users, groups, and desktops within the Free or Pro/Enterprise account

Member

Members of the Free or Pro/Enterprise Account, that are invited by the owner or administrator to be part of the account

Guest user

 

A guest user can be invited to a  Pro/Enterprise account. Guest users can be invited to a desktop created by a member of the Pro account (owner, admin, member) or the owner of the  Business account. A guest can be part of one or more desktops within an account they are invited to.
