The Marin Social User Manager


The User Manager section is where you can manage Marin Social platform user access. You are able to create, delete or disable platform logins. 

In this article, we'll show you how easy it is to manage users in the Marin Social platform.


There are three different available roleswithin the Marin Social platform:

Admin Community Manager User
Add users & edit user access x
