Can I set up multiple users for one account?

ElephantDrive Business plans allow you to set up multiple users (sub-accounts), each with unique login credentials.  There are two types of sub-accounts.

  • Workgroup Sub-Account
    Workgroup sub-accounts share the same trunk space and access level as the main account. A Workgroup sub-account is essentially a distinct set of login credentials to the same account as its parent. This sub-account is ideal if you need multiple logins to the same account, but data security between parent and sub-account is not an issue (as everybody can see all files in the account).

  • Independent Sub-Account
    Each Independent sub-account has his/her own trunk space and access level. They are essentially a free-standing account that can be administered by the parent. Independent sub-accounts do not have access to any objects in the parent account, unless those files or folders are being shared with them through the sharing process. This sub-account is ideal if you need storage, access, or protection for multiple users, but would like to maintain separate storage buckets for parent and sub-accounts where they don't have access to each others' data.
