Add users to multiple accounts

Optimizely Experimentation lets users log in to multiple accounts. Here is when this feature comes in handy:

  • You are an agency or consultant who manages multiple Optimizely Experimentation customers, and you want to be a collaborator on your clients' accounts
  • You are a customer with a centralized testing team that manages multiple accounts in your organization

To be added to multiple accounts, ask the Administrator or Project Owner of the account (depending on the permission level you need) to invite you. 

  1. In the project to which you want to add a collaborator, go to Settings > Collaborators.
  2. Click New Collaborator.
  3. Add the email address and select the collaborator role.
  4. Click Invite.


Switch among multiple accounts

With multiple accounts, you can switch between your primary account and any other account you were added to.


Change account names

Account administrators can change the account name.

  1. Go to Account Settings > Plan.
  2. Click Edit.
  3. Enter the desired account name in the Account Name field.


  4. Click Save.

After the account administrator changes the account name, the new name displays in the user's account options.
