Understanding Organization Permissions and Roles in Retrium
Org Admins and Org Managers can see the members list, add/remove members, and edit Team Room settings, even if they're not part of the Team Room. All Team Room Members can see any changes to the members list or Team Room settings via the Team Room Activity Log.

** Because billing is based on the number of active Team Rooms in a billing cycle, those with this permission will be able to increase your subscription's monthly or yearly cost.
💡 Roles apply across the organization, not to specific Team Rooms. All members of a Team Room have the same facilitator functionality.
Verified accounts within your organization can be assigned one of four roles—Org Admin, Org Manager, Org Member, and Org Visitor. Each role has different permissions, which affect what that user can see and do both within the Team Rooms and your Organization.
The person that sets up the organization will automatically be an Org Admin. They have full permissions for billing, Team Room creation, and organization settings.

This is not a role that can be assigned. It is an option that retrospective participants can choose when joining a Public Team Room. Public Team Rooms are ideal for inviting teammates to test Retrium during the free trial or for use when large groups of participants need to join a team room.
💡 The Guest role is often used to test Retrium during the free trial or when large groups of participants need to join a team room.
Guest participants do not have verified accounts and do not have to log in to participate in retrospectives.
Guests can only access Public Team Rooms.
