Multiple users (sub-accounts) each with unique login credentials can be administered through one ElephantDrive (main, parent) account. There are two types of sub-accounts.
- Workgroup Sub-Account
Workgroup sub-accounts share the same 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 its own access level that isn't shared with the parent or other workgroup/independent sub-accounts. They are essentially a free-standing account that can be administered through the parent account. Independent sub-accounts do not have access to any objects in the parent account. An independent sub-account is ideal if you need storage, access, or protection for multiple users, but would like to separate access so the parent and sub-accounts don't have access to each others' backups.
Sub-accounts can be created by navigating into the My Account tab in our user web portal.
