How to manage users

Zoho Campaigns has two roles by default: Standard Admin and Standard User. Standard Admin handles user activities and deals with organizational tasks. Each organization must have at least one administrator to handle critical operations, such as user invitations, user access, and account removal. Standard Users are members who work on the product with privileges granted for them. 

In this user guide, we'll walk you through operations such as how to invite your colleague, create and assign roles, remove a user from an organization, and much more. Standard Admins can create different custom roles and assign privileges for those roles according to their requirement. 
Note:
  1. For accounts added before December 12, 2017 users with admin privilege will be migrated to Admin role and other users will be migrated to User role.
  2. Privileges of Admin and User role can be edited whereas the privileges of Standard Admin and Standard User roles cannot be changed.
  3. Both Admin and Standard Admin has the privileges to remove users in any custom role.
  4. If Admin changes his/her role to Standard Admin, then they cannot change their role.

Add User

You can add to a maximum of five users to an organization. Only the admin can send invites to add users.
When the user accepts your invitation, they will be added to your organization

User status

In Users, you can find out what the status of your users is. There are seven different statuses,
  1. Active – The user is an active member in your organization and has the access to it.
  2. Invited – An invite has been sent to the user to join your organization.
  3. Associated – The user has accepted the invitation but hasn't joined yet.
  4. Blocked – The user's access to the organization is barred, as the user has ignored the invitation emails twice.
  5. Ignored - The user has ignored the invite, which means they've clicked the Ignore button in the invitation email.
  6. Re-invited - The user has been sent a second invitation email.
  7. Declined - The user has ignored the invitation email the first time.
  8. Inactive - The user has been marked inactive and cannot access Zoho Campaigns.

My colleagues work on different products on a rotational basis. Can I restrict access to them while they're not working in my product, without removing them from the organization every time?
Yes, you can restrict access without removing them from your organization. You can mark those users as inactive while they are not working on your product. Users won't be able to access Zoho Campaigns when they are inactive. You can make them active when they resume working on your product.

Please note that this solution won't work if other products use Zoho Campaigns, as an inactive user cannot become a member of any other organization. In this case, you should remove them from your organization, then add them again. 
Can I mark a user with admin privileges as inactive?
Yes, you can mark a user with admin privileges as inactive. You can mark any user as inactive irrespective of their role if you have admin privileges. However, you cannot mark yourself as inactive irrespective of your role. You need to ask another user with admin privileges to do that.
