Each account has the following user roles available:

  • Owner
  • Strategist
  • Editor
  • Freelancer

User sub-role

  • Followers

When you add users to your account, you need to assign them one of these roles. Each role has different levels of account access.

What does that mean for your team? Use the definitions below as a guide.

Owner - With the highest level of access, the account owner is usually a senior-level employee or manager who is authorized to manage payments, budgets and other employees' account access. The account owner can:

  • Manage the account subscription, account balance and payment method.
  • Add funds.
  • View assignment transactions and account invoice history.
  • Add and deactivate account users.
  • Modify user roles and payable status.
  • Create and manage assignments, campaigns, concepts, personas and publications.
  • Assign strategists, editors and creators to individual assignments.
  • Designate himself or herself as another role on any assignment. (It is common for owners to also be the strategist and/or editor for an assignment.)
  • Use Content Studio and Influencer Search.

The following notifications are specific to account owners:

  • An account member has requested an upgrade.

Strategist - A strategist has almost the same abilities as the account owner, with small restrictions around account management and subscription. The strategist usually creates the content plan, assignment and assignment budget. The strategist also delegates to the rest of the team. He or she ultimately approves an assignment for publication after it has been edited. The account strategist can:

  • Add funds.
  • View assignment transactions.
  • Add and deactivate account users.
  • Modify user roles and payable status.
  • Create and modify assignments, campaigns, concepts, personas, teams and publications.
  • Assign editors and creators to individual assignments.

Editor - An editor has limited account access and is typically a person on your team who reviews the content to make sure it is in line with any guidelines and instructions set for the creator by the strategist. The editor also ensures there aren't any grammar or spelling errors. The account editor can:

  • Create assignments and concepts.
  • Assign strategists, other editors and creators to individual assignments.

Creator - A creator writes assignments. You can invite your current writers to your account, and you have the option of making them payable through the platform. (You would use this option if you contract out your writers.) You also have the option of hiring freelance creators from the ClearVoice Marketplace. A creator can:

  • View assignment opportunities given to them.
  • Accept or decline opportunities.
  • Write assignments they've accepted.
  • Make revisions requested by the editor.

Follower (Sub-role) - all user roles (e.g., owner, strategist, etc.) can also be a follower.  A follower is someone that is a user on your account, does not serve a defined role on a concept, pitch request or assignment but wants to receive updates  

How do I become a follower:

  • Clicking "Add Follower" in a concept, pitch or assignment
  • A user on your team tags you in an concept, pitch request or assignment
  • Comment on an assignment  

A follower receives the following notifications:

  • Daily digest unless they are tagged then they will get one in 15 minutes
