What permissions do group managers have?

In Grammarly for Business teams on the Enterprise Tier, each member can have one of the following roles: admin, account manager, user, and user with group manager permissions.

Team members who have group manager permissions can maintain several aspects of their group’s Grammarly for Business account. This includes viewing analytics and managing writing preferences for the teams they have been assigned as group managers.
Team members with the user role but without group manager permissions can’t change any settings for their organization’s account.
