In every QuickBase application, different users play a variety of roles. Whether you're setting up applications or simply using them, it's helpful to understand the different types of users and how they relate to each other. The world of QuickBase users looks something like this:

Each QuickBase billing account generally has one central contact: the Billing Account Administrator. Billing Account Administrators can:

Billing Account Managers typically don't add or invite users to applications; it's up to each application manager to add and invite users for their applications. IOnce a user accesses an application in your billing account, Billing Account Administrators see their name listed on your account's Users with Access list. (To view this page, go to the My QuickBase page, click Manage my billing account and select the Users with Access tab).

Application administrators are application users whose role allows full administrative permissions on the application. Application administrators can do almost everything that application managers can do (the exceptions are noted above).

Application users are the people who have accepted an invitation to a QuickBase application. Any QuickBase user with sharing permissions in an application  can invite and add other users to the application.

Application users can have access to:

In addition, application managers can add the same user more than once in the same application. For example, in a small organization, you might want to add a user who will play different roles in your application. In this case, you could add two user records for the same user, assigning each a different role.
