The Enterprise “owner” is the super administrator who owns responsibility for the organization account. The owner can manage users, assign quotas, customize the organization’s public profile page, update account details, and assign administrative roles to other users. These organization options are accessible from the avatar drop-down menu.
Organization settings contain your organization profile information, the authentication settings for managing how users login to your Enterprise account, the list of users in your account, a list of user groups within your account, and the billing details for your organization. These options are only visible to the Enterprise owner.
Click Organization profile to manage everything related to your organization’s public profile. For example, you can add and organization logo, set the organization website, manage marker images for the organization, define the internal support email address for your users, and set the default user quota.
Click Auth settings to set authentication settings for your organization’s email domain and manage how users login to the Enterprise account. You can also require your organization users to create strong passwords.
Click #/# users to view and manage the users in your organization. Click ADD USERS to create new users or invite select users by sending an email. You must also select the user type as Builder (write and read access) or Viewer (read-only access).
Note: The number of seats available is the allowed number of users for your organization. This number is based on your Enterprise account details. You can also use the API to manage organization users.
When creating a new user with admin privileges, click the Administrator slider button in order to give that user admin access. Only Builder user types can become administrators.
Click Groups to set up and manage different user groups within your organization. This is useful as you can assign permissions on a group level. Click CREATE GROUP to set up new groups. Groups can share datasets and maps to collaborate. Once a group is set-up, you can add and remove users from the Groups section.
Click Notifications to send and manage notifications within your organization. The notification icon (a bell) located on the CARTO dashboard, displays any notifications sent by the organization owner (or admin user).
You can send alerts of up to 140 characters to users based on their user role (Builder or Viewer), or send notifications to all users in your organization.
Once alerts are sent, you can resend the message or remove the notification from these settings.
Click Billing to view your organization’s payment or billing details for your Enterprise account
Default Enterprise Permissions
The Enterprise owner can set the default permission settings for groups to read or write shared maps and datasets. This is an optional setting:
- If the owner sets a default permission level, these options are enforced for Enterprise users
- If no settings are enabled at the organization level, Enterprise users have control over how to share their maps and datasets within the organization
Tip: See the Share with your colleagues procedure for how to access the permission levels for sharing maps and datasets. As the Enterprise owner, the only difference is that you will see all of your organization groups and can select access permissions for each group.
