User Roles Overview

These are the following roles offered to your team to help manage your Storefront.

Company Admin: Company Admin is the most powerful Role on your Storefront. Admins can view all incoming and outgoing information, whether that's your Customer Requests or Leads, and can respond to or manage them as well. Only Admins can manage roles and permissions. Admins are the only ones that have access to the Company's Dashboard.

Company Member: Company Member is the default Role a  team member receive when they join your Storefront. This user cannot view leads, customer information, or speak to Customers.

This member is just affiliated to your Storefront because they have been identified to work at your Company. 

Contributors: Contributors can manage and edit information or imagery displayed on your Storefront for Customers by accessing the Storefront Editor. Contributors do not have access to Customer Requests or Leads.
Experts: Experts are publicly displayed on your Storefront so that Customers can reach out and ask questions about products directly. Experts can respond to Customers questions via Live Conversations, but cannot access Customer Requests or Leads. Learn more about setting up Experts here..

Messenger Representative: Messenger Representatives can initiate messages via the Messenger Chat to Customers to ask questions regarding Customer Requests or Leads. However, Messenger Representatives are not displayed publicly on your Storefront, like an Expert. 

Representative: Representatives can view and respond to Customer Requests or Leads as well as view the Insights Dashboard. They cannot initiate or respond to Customer messages on Knowde.
