Client Contacts

You can find this section in HostBill Admin → Clients → Manage Clients → Client Profile → Contacts.


Client contacts are profiles of the staff members. Client contacts are connected to the main client profile and usually have limited set of permissions.

Contact Types

There are two types of profiles connected to the main account:

  • Contact - client contact registered by the client

  • Guest - already registered email address, invited by client to become the client contact (/Guest).

Add new Client contact

Client Contacts and Guests can be added both from admin and client areas.

Client can either register a new Contact or Invite a person with already registered email address to join client profile as a Guest.

To add Customer contact navigate to Client profile, click the Contacts tab and Add contact button on the right. You will be presented with the registration form (same as for regular client profile registration).

Optionally, you can choose to notify client when a new client contact is added.

In admin panel, adding and managing Contacts is possible within Manage Contacts section. You can:

  • Add new Contact - register new Contact and grant access to your account with chosen set of permissions

  • Invite User - enter email address of already registered user and grant access to your account with chosen set of permissions

The section also lists all Contacts and Guests along with the status:

  • Pending - the contact has been added but has not confirmed it yet

  • Invite sent - the invitation has been sent

  • Rejected - the contact rejected invitation

  • Active - active contact

  • Inactive - the contact is no longer active (can not log-in to the account)

Guest profiles

Once the invitation to join Client profile is sent (the template can be edited in Email Templates section), the Guest can accept or reject the invitation. If the invitation gets accepted, when logging in, the Guest can choose the account to use (with the company or account name and ID). The top menu also allows for quick switching the accounts.

Client contact permissions

Client contact privileges section defines access to client area sections that this contact will have. The set of privileges can be defined during contact creation or can be edited afterwards. Availability of contact permissions also depend on client permissions.
