Adding Vagaro as an Admin to the Developer Account
Giving us access to the Account
Step 1: Decide whether you want Vagaro to have global or per-app access
Before you set up permissions, you need to decide if you want us to have global or per-app access. We recommend that you give us Per-app access. Here's a breakdown of the two access levels.
- Global: Global access applies to all apps in your developer account.
- Per-app: Per-app access only applies to the selected app.
Step 2: Adding Vagaro and turning on or off permissions
If you're an account owner or admin, you can add Vagaro as a user to your Play Console account and manage permissions across all apps or for specific apps. Follow these steps to add Vagaro as an admin.
- Sign in to your Play Console.
- Click Settings > Users & permissions.
- To add Vagaro as a user, select Invite new user and follow the onscreen instructions.
- To update permissions for an existing user, hover over their email address and select the pencil icon .
- Use the "Role" selector to choose a pre-defined role or use the checkboxes for individual permissions.
- Choose whether each permission applies to all apps in your developer account ("Global") or specific apps.
- To add an app to the permissions table, use the down arrow next to "Add an app."
- To see details for each permission, review the permission definitions section.
