There are four groups of Users in Megaphone:
- Users with access to the whole Organization
- Users with access to an entire Network of shows
- Users with access to specific Podcasts
- Users with access to Ad Ops/Billing related activities
An "organization" in Megaphone is a unique account that represents an entire business of owned and operated podcasts or a collection of shows/networks that make up a larger organization. Each organization consists of network(s) and podcast(s) within those networks. Organization users have access to all of the networks and podcasts in a given organization and have high level visibility of activities within Megaphone.
