    How would Sub-Accounts work for Pricing if School Staff need to Create and Edit All Forms as Users?

    Asked by UCEAICTSupport on September 29, 2015 at 09:48 AM

    Hi,

     

    We are a secondary school in England and are just wondering how the pricing works.

     

    We have round 70 staff, would each of them be classed as a sub user in order to give them the ability to create and edit forms?

    sub users subaccount sub account subaccount users adding users staff form access

    I apologize in advance but your question is a bit confusing. Your topic is about "Sub-Users" but then you are asking in your first question about "Wondering how the Pricing Works..."?

    It seems to me you would mainly like to know how your staff of 70 could classed in order to create and edit forms if added as Sub-Users? Or? Please elaborate more if I misunderstood you though.

    Anyhow you can get a better understanding of how sub-users work as explained in this guide here https://www.jotform.com/help/232-How-to-Share-Forms-with-a-Sub-Account-User.

    Additionally, your parent account can only have so many child accounts as your sub-users depending on the subscription plan for your account. So for your sake if you plan on adding all 70 staff then you would need to get our Gold Plan which would support up to 100 sub-account users.

    Please note though that your subscription plan is only per account and does not include sub-accounts. What that means is that if even though the Parent Account has a Gold Subscription as an example and you have the Child Account listed as a Sub-Account the Child Account would not have the same subscription plan but rather the Free Plan unless that sub-account is upgraded too. 

    However, you can work around this problem by placing, sharing, or transferring form ownership.
