Here are some questions we get all the time!
What is an Admin?
Admin is short for administrator. An administrator oversees your entire Partner Portal. Choosing who will act as an admin for your portal is an important decision as they will have full control over it.
What is a Partner?
Partners are companies or individuals that refer you business. The partner portal allows you to provide your partners with a central hub so that these companies or individuals can easily send you new business.
Partners are usually agencies, app providers, SaaS Companies, or freelancers.
What is an Agent?
An agent is someone who works on behalf of the partner and can be granted access to your partner portal by partners - typically partner staff members.
What is a Staff Member?
Staff members are just that - your staff. You can decide to add your staff members to the partner portal in order to help you manage your partner program.
We do not limit the number of your own staff you can add to your partner portal.

Admins can not do the following:
- Modify billing details for your account.
- Enable or remove integrations to your portal.
