Add a sub-account user

A user having a paid plan is called the main user in BitBar. The main user is able to add sub-account users. Sub-account users will inherit the same plan and roles than the main user and all time usage is presented and counted for the main user.

Projects between main and sub-account are not shared by default. They need to be shared separately.

To add a sub-account user:

  1. Go to My Account.

  2. At the bottom of the screen you see the account users attached to your account and you have the possibility to send new invites to new sub-users.
