Where can I see property-level Users?

You can see all property-level users listed in the following tab:

  1. Click on Users under Organization&Users
  2. Open Properties Users tab
  3. You can filter which property users list you want to see by clicking in the property drop-down menu

It is not possible to add a new user on the property-level through this page. For that purpose, the user must be logged in the property level to see the User Management page.

What's the difference between Organization Users and Property-level users?

Organization Users  

  1. Created by Organization Owner and Admins within the Organization
  2. Have access to multiple accounts according to the permissions granted by the Organization Owner or Admins.
  3. Navigate between properties through the Property Switcher icon
  4. They may have the same role in any number of properties or have different roles in each of those properties (f.e., administrator in property A and frontdesk in property B).  

Property-level users

  1. Created by the Property Owner within the User Management page
  2. Have restricted access to only one property
  3. Do not see the Property Switcher

Both Organization Users and Property-Level users will see the User Management page - Organization & Users page is restricted to Organization Owner and Admins.
