Enterprise Team Seats, Roles and Permissions

ENTERPRISE TEAMS: This article is for some Enterprise teams. If you have Team Advantage or Team Premier, see Team Seats Roles and Permissions.

Your seat and role on a team controls what account permissions you have and how you can work together with your team.

Some Enterprise teams have a set number of Power seats and unlimited Casual seats. To see if your Enterprise plan has Casual seats included, reach out to your CSM.

Within these two seat categories, role assignments create your team’s collaboration structure. Here are the seats and their various roles:

PowerPrimary AdminThe Primary Admin is in charge of billing, library management, and role assignments.
PowerAdminAdmins get most of the same permissions as the Primary Admin, including the ability to manage divisions, libraries, and roles.
PowerDivision AdminDivision Admins manage their assigned divisions, people in those divisions, and their division libraries.
PowerPower UserPower Users can create and share surveys using all the Enterprise features and tools, with access to paid integrations.
CasualCasual UserCasual Users have access to simple SurveyMonkey features and can create surveys and preview teammates’ work. Some Enterprise teams have unlimited Casual seats.

If you want a Power seat, click Request Power Seat at the top of any page to send your Primary Admin a request, or click Request feature when you see a locked feature you’d like to use.

For all other requests, reach out to your Primary Admin. To find their email, click your username in the main navigation, go to My Account, and find your Primary Admin’s email under Account Details.

Click Request Power Seat at the top of any page to see when you sent your request, your Primary Admin’s email, and an option to remind them with one click. You will get an email once the Primary Admin has accepted or declined your request.

Yes—you can always request a Power seat. If you’ve been declined in the past, check in with your Primary Admin to make sure they understand your request.

To manage your Enterprise Team, you must be a Primary Admin or Admin. Division Admins, see Divisions.
