Adding or Deleting Users

  • Updated

In Act-On, you can add admin users, marketing users, and sales users as needed. You can also remove or change user licenses at any time.

Do you need a marketing user, an admin user, or a sales user?

Each type of user has different privileges and capabilities in your Act-On account:

  • Administrators (admins) define account policies, user profiles & privileges, and designate email launch approvals
  • Marketing users create, manage, and send content based on privileges set by the Administrator
  • Sales users view website prospects and send 1-to-1 emails through Act-On

How do I change a user's email address?

An Act-On user's email address cannot be changed. Instead, you must first delete the user and then add them again with their new email address.

My user did not receive a confirmation email. What can I do?

  1. Confirm the user's email address in Act-On is correct.
  2. Have them check their spam folder for the confirmation message.
  3. You can resend the confirmation message by going to Settings > Users, find the user and hover over their name. Click the three dots to access an overflow menu. Then click Resend verification email.
  4. If the problem persists, contact Act-On support and we can validate the email and provide a temporary password for the user.

How do I add more marketing or sales users to my account?

If you've reached your account's limit for adding marketing and sales users, contact your Account Manager or Act-On Support to increase your limit.
