Partner Portal - Managing Your Employees' Access to Datto



How do I manage my employees' access to Datto tools?


  • Datto Partner Portal
  • Datto Academy
  • Datto Knowledge Base
  • Zendesk support ticket system



A Partner Portal Organization Login account can create individual employee accounts. These are ideal if you have multiple employees managing and servicing Datto devices. Datto's tools share access information, so your employees can log in to each one using the same username and password.

Additional Employee accounts may only be created for Datto partners. Do not create them for end users.

Getting Started with Managing Employees

Begin managing your employees from the Partner Portal by choosing the Admin tab and selecting Manage Employees.

Figure 1: Manage Employees

Click the Add Employees button. 

Figure 2: Add Employees

Enter all relevant employee information. For the employee's role, the levels are as follows:

  • Admin: Full account access with the exception of Account Settings. Account Settings may only be managed by the primary account holder.
  • Business: Access to the Partner Store, the SaaS Store, and ability to purchase Shadow Protect licenses. Access to all Admin pages except Device Status, Device Audit and RoundTrips. Access to Integrations, Manage Clients, and Manage Employees under the Admin tab. 
  • Tech: Access to device status information, Ticket Portal, and APIs. Tech accounts do not have access to any marketing or store features, and cannot manage employees or users.
  • Sales and Marketing: Access to marketing materials, pricing sheets, and the ability to purchase items through the store. Sales and Marketing accounts cannot manage employees or users.
To enable two-factor authentication, you must enter a phone number.

When finished, click Create Employee If you are creating accounts for multiple employees, check the Add another employee box to cycle to the next employee.Figure 3: Employee information and role

The new employees will get an email containing temporary credentials for login. This email will also go to the primary email address for the main Datto Resale Portal Account.
