4. Feature Configuration
The Accounts feature has a single configuration options which we will cover below so that you fully understand how best to configure the feature for your organization.
For some organizations, accounts are off-limits to member control. If a new member needs to be added, only the organization admin can do it. If this sounds like your organization, then leave this option disabled.
Other organizations, however, do not mind if an account admin wants to add or remove members to/from their account. For some, this removes one more work item to manage and puts the onus on the member to keep this information up to date. If this sounds like your organization, then you’ll want to enable this option.
If you enable this option, only account admins can add or remove members from their account as well as make other account members an admin on the account. They cannot see or edit any other organizational information.
