What types of users are there in Stormboard?

An overview of the different types of user permissions available on Stormboard

Team Owner/Administrator

The person that signed up for the paid subscription is automatically its Team Administrator. They can manage the team, change settings, change credit card information, and disable users. Teams on a Startup or Business subscription can have one Team Administrator, while teams on an Enterprise plan can have multiple Team Administrators.

Storm Administrator

The person that creates a Storm is automatically its first Storm Administrator. Storm Administrators can adjust the Storm’s settings, run reports, and change/edit its template. On our Business and Enterprise Plans, Storm Administrators can also enable other users to be Storm Administrators for that Storm (they will not be automatically promoted to Storm Administrator in other Storms).

Storm Creator

Users enabled as Storm Creators can create Storms under your Team’s subscription and invite other users to the Storms they have joined. When a Storm Creator invites a contributor to a Storm, that new user is automatically added to your team as an enabled user and will count towards your subscription’s monthly bill or annual licenses. Team Administrators can enable or disable the Storm Creator setting for each user on your team.

Storm Contributor

Storm Contributors are participants in a Storm that can fully contribute in real-time to your Storm. When they join your Storm, they are automatically added to your team as an enabled user and will count towards your subscription’s monthly bill or annual licenses.

Storm Viewer

Storm viewers are participants in a Storm with read-only access (they can view the content of a Storm but are unable to contribute or edit content). Storm viewers are free and do not count towards your Team's monthly bill or annual licenses. Note: Storm Viewers are available on our paid subscriptions.
