  • Limit of 50 profiles per account, so explain potential issues
  • 31 currency code currently supported
  • Daily exchange rate to convert the currency to the master currency you’ve defined in the profile settings
  • It’s a good idea to limit the number of users that have Edit permissions at the Account level.The Manager Users setting is great for marketers. Many times a marker will need to give other team members access to data. Or, in an ideal case, an executive that wants deeper insights into the business! Don’t be afraid to give marketers Manager User access so they can add more users.
