Free UsersFree users are any user you have invited at the Workspace, Folder, or File level as a Viewer, Printer, Downloader, or Creator. You can invite as many users at this level without them counting against your limit.
Paid UsersA paid user is any Account user or any user in a Workspace that has a Collaborator, Moderator, or Administrator role.
ExampleA typical setup might be something like:
- You: Account Administrator
- Bridget: Account Moderator
- James: Account Creator
These are your Account Users, and they’re all paid users, which count against your limit. To see your current Account Users, click the Users tab from the home Workspace listing, and then click on the Account filter on the left.
The other type of paid user is someone with a Collaborator, Moderator, or Administrator role who belongs to your Workspaces but not the Account. To view the users on a Workspace, just go to the Workspace listing, and click the People icon to bring up a list of users.
Let’s take a look at a typical list of users on a Workspace to see which ones are paid versus free users:
- Anna: Workspace Administrator
- Bruce: Workspace Moderator
- Jack: Workspace Creator
- Sarah: Workspace Viewer
Anna and Bruce are the only people in this list who are a paid users. Jack and Sarah are both considered free users, and they don’t count against your limit. The total number of paid users for these two examples is five. Any other user, including people with whom you have shared a single file or folder, are all free users.
