Benefits of Teams

Teams provides an account owner the flexibility to grant access to specific sections of their account that they designate, offering:

  1. Secure Access Management

    1. Controlled Access Sharing: Share Zencastr account access without disclosing sensitive login or billing information.

    2. Exclusive Account Control: The account owner has sole control over adding or removing team members, ensuring account security.

  2. Precise Role-Based Permissions

    1. Area-based Access: Allocate specific roles to grant team members access to only the platform areas and features necessary for their tasks.

    2. Show-based Access: Assign team members to specific shows, limiting their access to podcasts or projects they're involved in.

  3. Efficient Collaboration

    1. Centralized Visibility: The account owner has a comprehensive view of all ongoing activities within the account, streamlining oversight.

    2. Simultaneous Recording: Facilitate concurrent recording sessions by different groups of individuals.

    3. Concurrent Postproductions: Run postproductions for distinct recordings concurrently for workflow efficiency.

  4. Billing Control and Management

    1. Exclusive Billing Access: The account owner maintains sole access to all billing settings, including card information, ensuring complete control and management of their Zencastr subscription.

Roles for Team Members

There are 7 area-based roles available for team assignment, each with access to specific areas of the platform. Team members must be assigned at least one role and can be assigned multiple roles.

Account Owner

Distinct from the 7 assigned roles, the account owner is the person who creates the Zencastr account under their email address. This person has access to the entire account and all areas of the platform including Account Settings, Recording, Editing, Hosting, Clipping, and Monetization. The account owner is the only person who can access the Account Settings to manage their subscription, team members, and master recording settings.
