Introducing member roles

Every team member using Grammarly Business is assigned one of three roles: owner, contributor, or user. Roles determine what information and settings a member can access.


The user role is for the end-users of the Grammarly Business account members. Users will receive Grammarly’s full range of writing suggestions and have limited view-only access to account analytics. This is the default role for newly created members.

The contributor role is designed for Grammarly Business members who want to manage and maintain aspects of the Grammarly Business account related to product usage. This includes viewing analytics as well as managing style guides and other writing configurations for the account. Members in the contributor role might be department heads, managers, or team leaders.

The owner role is designed for Grammarly Business members who need full control over all aspects of the Grammarly Business account. Owners have access to everything available under the contributor role, plus they can manage IT configurations (including single sign-on) and subscription details for billing purposes. Members in the owner role might be founders and executives, senior leadership, or someone from the IT department who provisions licences or handles account administration. You can assign multiple members to the owner role.


Below is the list of permissions granted to each role within a Grammarly Business account.

How to assign roles

Members can be assigned to roles on the Members page:


To assign several team members to a role, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Members page
  2. Select individual members by ticking the boxes next to their email addresses, then click the Change Role button that appears at the bottom of the page
  3. In the window that appears, select the preferred role in the drop-down menu and click the Change Roles button to confirm the action

Team members can also be assigned to a role as a part of SAML Single Sign-On.

When members join, they will be assigned to the user role by default.
