Your seat and role on a team controls what account permissions you have and how you can work together with your team.
Your Enterprise team has a set number of Power seats and unlimited Casual seats.
Within these two seat categories, role assignments create your team’s collaboration structure. Here are the seats and their various roles:
|Power||Primary Admin||The Primary Admin is in charge of billing, library management, and role assignments.|
|Power||Admin||Admins get most of the same permissions as the Primary Admin, including the ability to manage divisions, libraries, and roles.|
|Power||Division Admin||Division Admins manage their assigned divisions, people in those divisions, and their division libraries.|
|Power||Power User||Power Users can create and share surveys using all the Enterprise features and tools, with access to paid integrations.|
