Partner Portal - Managing Your Employees in the Partner Portal



How do I manage my employees in the Datto Partner Portal? 


  • Datto Partner Portal



A Datto 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.

Only use the Manage Employees page to give your employees Partner Portal access. To give your customers access to the Partner Portal, use the Manage Clients page.

Creating new employees

1. Choose the Admin tab and selecting Manage Employees.

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

  • Admin: Full account access with the exception of Account Settings. 
  • 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, integrations, 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.

4. Click the Create Employee button. If you are creating accounts for multiple employees, check the Add another employee box to cycle to the next employee.
