User Management: Get Your Team on Savio

You have a shiny new feedback vault in Savio. Here’s how to get your team all set up to use it. In this article, we’ll cover:

Note: Some roles are currently paid and others are free. The information below was current at the time of writing but may have changed. See our pricing page for the most current pricing details.

What is a “user” in Savio?

Users are members of your team that can access Savio or submit feedback to your feedback vault. These aren’t your customers—your customers don’t need to join Savio to give you feedback. They just give it to you through your regular communication channels (Intercom, Help Scout, email, etc.) and Savio centralizes it in your feedback vault.

Users are the people on your team that need to log into Savio. You’ll need a Savio account for your teammates if they:

Note: You will NOT need a Savio account or user seat for your teammates if they submit feedback to Savio via:

  • Integration with a support tool

  • Integration with a CRM

  • The Slack integration

How to manage users

To see the Manage Users screen:

  1. Click your name in the top right corner of Savio.

  2. Click “Manage Users

Now you’re on the “Manage Users” page. You do all your user management from this page. It will show you everyone who is a current user and their role.

Your “Manage Users” page will look like this. You can see each user’s name, email, and role.

User roles

Users can have one of six roles in Savio: Owner, Admin, Manager, Contributor, Viewer, and Submitter. The roles are designed to help you include everyone who needs to be connected to your product feedback system without paying for extra roles you don’t need.

Owner: Owners can do everything in Savio. They can make feedback, edit feedback, and invite users. They can also change billing information. Typically only one or two people who are directly involved with managing payment for Savio need ownership roles. Owners are currently paid user roles.

Admin: Admins can do everything owners can do except change billing information. This is the best role for senior product team members responsible for setting up and configuring your feedback system, managing feedback and feature requests, building roadmaps, connecting integrations, and so on. Admins are currently paid user roles.

Manager: Managers can do everything except configuration tasks. They can submit feedback, triage, create, edit, filter, and sort feature requests, change roadmaps, close the loop, and more. Managers can’t configure workflows or change settings. They can’t, for example, customize your feature request list columns, connect integrations, or manager users. This role is best for say, junior product team members who use Savio to manage feedback, feature requests, and roadmaps but don’t need to configure it. Managers are paid user roles.

Contributor: Contributors can submit feedback and view everything, but can’t make changes—can’t triage, edit feature requests, or create roadmaps. This role might be appropriate for, say, a member of your Sales team who needs to send you feedback from prospects and wants to see it in Savio, but doesn’t need to manage your feedback system. Contributor roles are free.

Viewer: Viewers can see feedback, feature requests, and roadmaps but can’t create feedback or feature requests, or make edits. It’s ideal for developers and executives that want to dive into feedback, requests, and roadmaps, but who don’t need to submit feedback or make changes. Viewers are currently free.

Submitter: Submitters can submit feedback from the Savio Chrome Extension or from email, but they can’t view anything in Savio. This is ideal for members of your frontline teams—Sales, Marketing, Customer Success, Support—that need to centralize the feedback they get, but don’t need to see it or manage it. Submitter seats are free.

Note: Anyone can submit feedback to Savio from Intercom, Help Scout, Zendesk, HubSpot, Salesforce, and Slack without being a Savio user or having a Savio account. They just need an account with Intercom, Help Scout, Zendesk, or the other tools they’d send feedback from.
