Changing a Standard User to a Power User

There are many good reasons to promote a Standard User to the Power User role. Power Users can:

  • Access the cloud from their desktop using Desktop App (Egnyte Drive).
  • Sync files to their computer with Desktop Sync.
  • Create links to files
  • Log into their account using an external authentication provider
  • Invite new collaborators to your account
  • Maintain a private folder for personal work documents like performance evaluations

Changing a Standard User's role takes three easy steps. First, navigate to "Settings / Users & Groups". Locate the user and select the "Details" option.

Navigate to Profile tab and select the "Change user type" option.

Then pick "Power User" from the drop down menu.
