Change User Type


As your employee's roles change within the company, so will their roles within Egnyte. A Power User may have been promoted to the head of their department, a freelancer that worked with your company may have been hired on full-time, or a former IT Admin may be taking on a different position within the company. Each of these examples would likely prompt a user type change in Egnyte to conform to their new duties.

User types can easily be changed in just a few steps as you'll see below.

Change User Type

  1. Navigate to Settings and select the Users & Groups tab. Locate the user and click the Details button.

  2. Navigate to the Profile tab and click the Change user type link.
