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

Each User group has a subset of User Roles listed below:

Organization Users

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.

  • Organization Admin

Organization Admins have full access within organizations in Megaphone. This includes updating organizational settings, creating new networks, inviting other users, as well as the ability to create/edit/delete podcasts, campaigns, promos, and advertising agencies. 

  • Ad Ops Manager

Ad Ops Managers have almost full access within organizations in Megaphone. This includes updating some organizational settings, creating new networks, as well as the ability to create/edit/delete podcasts, campaigns, promos, and advertising agencies. Ad Ops Managers also have access to additional reporting relating to impression delivery and revenue reports.
