Adding users to your company on Remote


In a nutshell, this is what you need to know: Adding a company admin to your company's Remote account allows you to invite your HR team or others that need to view and/or take actions on your company's behalf. To add a company admin, navigate to Company Details in the sidebar. Then select Company admins and click Invite. Add the details of the person you want to invite and click save to invite them. The person will receive an invitation email to complete the signup process.

What is a company user?

A company user on Remote is a person who is able to view and (optionally) administer the details of your company account. Company users can take actions on your company's behalf, such as adding new team members under the company on Remote, removing team members, administering payroll etc. Since we do not support multiple roles for the same user, the employer can't invite users who are already employees of this company unless a different email address is used.

Are there different types of or roles for company users?

Yes, there are three types of company admins:

  • Owner: The person who created the company in Remote, this person has the same permissions as company admins but receives emails when some events happen (eg: contractors upload their invoices, time-off & expense requests from employees).
  • Admin: An admin can take almost all actions that the owner can take. Actions include inviting, updating and removing new team members to the company account on Remote, seeing personal information of team members, and updating the company account's account preferences. This role is suited for members of your HR and onboarding team.
  • Viewer: A viewer can view all of the information that an admin can, but not edit any of it. This role is suited for members of your finance and accounting teams. It can also work for HR team members that need access to HR information, but not the ability to edit it/ add employees & contractors
