Admin roles

Front has three levels of default users: Company Admins, Workspace Admins, and Standard Access users. As an admin, you have access to features and settings that Standard Access users do not. Below is an explanation of each level and the features admins can access.

Admins can also define user roles with customized permission sets, such as allowing only certain teammates to create rules, or restricting certain teammates from responding to messages. 

A summary of the default roles are below. For a detailed explanation of each role, see this article.

Standard Access

Standard Access users can access only individual settings. They do not have access to Workspace settings.

Workspace Admin

Workspace Admins control their Workspace and Workspace settings. They can add an existing teammate or invite a new teammate to their Workspace. See below for list of admin permissions. 

Company Admin

Company Admins control their company’s Front account. One account can consist of many Workspaces. Only Company Admins can create Workspaces. Company Admins can also manage billing and deliverability settings.

Workspace Admins and Company Admins have access to the following features:

Invite teammates

Front is more fun with all of your teammates! Only admins can invite teammates to join the company Front account.

Shared inboxes

Share conversations from any channel: Email, SMS, Twitter, Facebook, and more. Only admins can create shared inboxes and can grant teammates access to them. 


Automate your team's workflow to save time and increase efficiency. Only admins can create rules for shared inboxes, but Standard Access users can create rules for their individual inboxes.


Connect other tools you use with Front. Non-admins will be able to access the App Store and enable most apps. Apps that have company-level data impact (such as rules or data sync) will require company admin permissions, but Standard Access users can use the integration once it's been enabled. 


With Front's Analytics, you can gain insight into your success metrics by inbox, teammates, tags, and customers.

Note: Workspace analytics will only be visible to Workspace Admins. Even if you have Company Admin access enabled, to view a Workspace's analytics, you will also need to be a Workspace Admin for that Workspace.

    Hi there,

    Is there a way to customise an integration that an Admin sets for their team member, or does the individual have to customise the Integration themselves?

    Rudy McGee Hi Rudy, only admins can enable the integrations for your team and there isn't a way to customize the integrations themselves.
