Reference: User Management and Privileges
If you’re starting with Klaviyo there’s a good chance you already have a team of people that are helping you with all aspects of marketing. Even if you’re a solo entrepreneur, as your grow you’ll likely need to add more people in your team to help you with Klaviyo. Although adding Users in Klaviyo is simple, it’s a good idea to consider the amount of access the User need to perform their job efficiently.
Understanding User Roles
To make role management easy, Klaviyo grouped various access levels to the type of users that may need to log into Klaviyo. Currently, there are 6 different user roles that you can assign to your new team members, each with different levels of access:
- Campaign Coordinator
- Content Creator
Owner, Admins, and Managers
All three user roles have very similar access. They all can see the Revenue produced by your Campaigns and Flows, they can edit content, create/edit Flows, send Campaigns and much more.
There can be only one Owner and by default that’s the person who creates the account. Only the Owner have permissions to close Klaviyo account.
A user with Admin role in your Klaviyo Account have full access to all Klaviyo features. They can do everything what Owner can, with the exception of closing the account. Admins are usually assigned to trusted people within your organization who need full access to Klaviyo and are responsible for provisioning access to Klaviyo to others in your team, or to download your customer list for other purposes in your business.
Assigning the Manager role will restrict the user even further. While the Manager have access to all key features of your account, he cannot export your email lists or invite new team members to Klaviyo. Managers are typically assigned to people internally who require all the features of Klaviyo, but require approval to export your list. If you work with an agency’s account manager or a trusted freelancer who need broad access to Klaviyo, this would be the recommended access level.
Analyst, Content Creators, Campaign Coordinator
The other three user roles have a more specific restrictions to certain sections of your Klaviyo Account that different types of users may only need limited access to perform their job.
After you’ve sent enough Campaigns and your basic Flows are live for some time, you may want to delegate a User to help you review the analytics and reports, create new dashboard analytics, or stay on top of the numbers. An Analyst can see all the data, but they can’t edit any Campaigns, Flows, Sign Up Forms, or Templates within Klaviyo. People responsible for reporting, accounting, financials, analysts, or data science are the typical types of users who this access.
If you have creative folks whose sole responsibility is to create templates, upload new images, edit or modify the copy in your email messages, you may want to designate them as a Content Creator. Content Creators are restricted from changing any Flow settings or sending or scheduling Campaigns. They can create Email Templates and load them into the Flows or Campaigns that have already been setup. This role is usually assigned to writers and designers both internally or if you work with external partners whose focus is only on the layout, design and messaging of your emails. Graphic designers, copywriters, user experience specialists, brand managers, or other creative talents are the typical people who have this level of access.
Finally, if you have someone whose main responsibility is to schedule and coordinate email campaigns, launch or stop signup forms, or organize the campaign details then you may want to designate them as a Campaign Coordinator. Campaign Coordinator can plan and schedule your campaigns and send them to the appropriate segments. This user has access to create Campaigns, Coupon Codes, Email Templates, Signup Forms. Campaign Coordinator, as the name implies, are provisioned to users on your team who are responsible for the day to day scheduling of your marketing or product calendar, logistics, or project management.
