What Roles are available?
DataCamp offers multiple roles, each with a unique set of permissions within the DataCamp platform.
Admins have full administrative access to an organization including access to billing and subscription-related tasks, organization settings, upsells, and inviting other admins to an organization.
Admins can invite admins, managers, and members and also assign any of these roles to existing members. An admin can change its own role, with a constraint that each organization must have at least one admin. You can have more than one admin as well.
Managers are focused on organization member management, content-related features (assignments, custom tracks, etc.), and organization-level reporting. They have limited administrative access to an organization, with no access to billing and subscription-related tasks, inviting members/redeeming licenses, upsells, or organization settings.
Specific actions they can do include:
Create and manage teams
View, create, edit, and manage the organization’s custom tracks
View, create, edit and manage the organization’s assignments
View reporting, including advanced reporting pages and data exports
Specific actions they cannot do include:
Purchase new licenses or upgrades within the platform
Invite new members to the organization (i.e. redeeming licenses) by email or generating a new invite link (they can see and copy existing invite links created by Admins, but cannot create their own)
Edit organization settings, including billing, SSO configuration, etc.
Team managers are focused on team member management, team content-related features (team assignments, etc.), and team reporting.
They have full administrative access to features within all teams of an organization they belong to, but no administrative access to the organization itself and no access at all to teams they do not belong to.
The majority of users in a typical DataCamp organization are members. Members don’t have any administrative privileges in your organization. They can, however, view and complete assignments, enroll in custom tracks, view leaderboards, and take content on DataCamp.
Billable vs. Non-billable users
Billable users occupy a paid license and have access to DataCamp’s content. Non-billable users do not occupy a paid license and do not have access to DataCamp’s learning content. Non-billable members will have access to their organization’s dashboard to view reports, manage assignments, custom tracks, and organization settings.
Only roles with administrative privileges like admin and manager can be non-billable. All members will be considered billable users.
You can convert a non-billable user to a billable user if you would like to access DataCamp content and redeem a paid license.
Set roles when inviting members
You can assign a user a role when you invite them to your DataCamp organization. To do so, you’ll need to invite them by email. To assign administrative permissions to a user, check the box on the invite modal. Once this box is checked, you will have the option to select either “Admin” or “Manager” and send the invite. You’ll also have the option to determine if the user you are inviting will take DataCamp content and require a paid license, or if they will join as a non-billable user. Once the user accepts the invite, they will join your organization with the role and billing status you assigned.
Edit Roles and billable status
To change a user’s role or if they are a billable/non-billable user, go to the member’s page of your organization. Find the user whose role or status you would like to change. Click the gear icon on the right side of the page next to the user’s name. You’ll see a dropdown - where you can click “Change role” or “Allocate/Remove paid license”.
Only admins can change a user’s role.
You can also edit the billable status of a user.
Note: Members must always be billable users and occupy a paid license. Administrative roles like admins and managers can be billable or non-billable, depending on if they want to take content themselves. If your organization does not have any remaining licenses, you’ll need to purchase more before changing a user’s status from non-billable to billable.
