Quick Summary

User is an individual with a unique login.
Account/Team is a group of Users with shared subscription and data.
Showroom is a "brand space" where products and orders are built and collected.

User

A "User" (or "Login" to differentiate between an actual person and the entity in Brandboom):

  • Is represented by an email address
  • Has a login password
  • Is a member of 1 Account/Team in Brandboom
  • Can only be logged in on one device at a time
  • Has specific permissions granted in an Account/Team
  • Has specific permissions granted in a Showroom

Example: [email protected] is a User. [email protected] is a User

Account

An Account consists of 1 or more Users who share access to information by default and have their access and subscriptions managed together. 

Often an Account is referred to as a "Team" since the word "account" may be confused with User/Login.

Each Account/Team has an Organization Profile where they can set an Organization name and address. Since Brandboom allows for all kinds of collaborative arrangements, an Account/Team may be used to represent any of these:

  • Brand
  • Parent or subsidiary company
  • Different departments of a company
  • Sales Agency
  • Independent Sales Rep
  • Individual User
  • Any group

Example: [email protected] and [email protected] are Users in the same Account/Team "Brand M Inc."

Account Owner

Each Account/Team can have more than 1 Owner who:

  • Can authorize changes to Subscription
  • Can delete or request suspension of other Users in the Account/Team
  • Can authorize transfer or addition of Account/Team ownership to another User in the Account/Team

Example: [[email protected]] and [[email protected]] are Users in the same Account/Team "Brand M Inc." and [[email protected]] is the Owner of that Account/Team

Showroom

A Showroom is simply a "brand space" created by Users that has its own Products, Orders, Settings, and Invited Users.

Example: [[email protected]] is a User from the Account/Team "Brand M Inc." who created the Showroom "Brand M" and is the Owner of the Showroom.

Showroom Owner

Each Showroom has 1 Owner who:

  • Cannot be removed from the Showroom's list of Invited Users
  • Is the only User capable of authorizing a transfer of ownership to another User
  • Is the only User capable of deleting the Showroom completely

By default, the User who originally created a Showroom is set as the Showroom Owner.

Note: Often, the actual Brand owner is the person who creates the Showroom and is set as the Owner. However, in some cases, an employee, contractor, or Sales Agency may create a User and create the Showroom to display and sell products for the actual Brand. Therefore it is important to note that the Owner of a Showroom is not necessarily the actual owner of a Brand.

Example: [email protected] is a User from the Account/Team "Brand M Inc." who owns the Showroom "Brand M"

Showroom Owner's Team

A User may be the Owner of a Showroom but it does not mean that anybody in their Account/Team has to be invited or will be invited automatically.

If the Owner does invite other members of their Account/Team, those users will have the potential ability to see all Orders collected in the Showroom. This allows members of the same Account/Team to collaborate with more comprehensive access than invited Users from other Accounts/Teams.
