Our Organization feature may play a big role in your Flywheel experience, especially if you have Growth Suite. Let’s take a look at how and when this feature will come into use!
The Organization feature allows an agency owner and their team to manage their Flywheel subscriptions, team members, sites, and site maintenance all from one collaborative dashboard!
Once you create an Organization, you can begin to add members. Think of members as your internal team, so anyone who would need access to things like creating new sites, Staging, Logs, Stats, site database, Growth Suite (if applicable), and everything in the Flywheel dashboard.
No more sharing passwords! Each member will have their own log-in credentials and dashboard where they can help you manage the day-to-day.
To create an Organization, head to the ‘Manage’ drop-down in the upper-right corner of your Flywheel dashboard and select ‘Organizations’. From there, name your Organization and add the contact email address.
Once you create an Organization, you can begin to add members. Add anyone who would need access to create new sites, Staging, Logs, Stats, site database, Growth Suite (if applicable), and everything in the Flywheel dashboard. They can also use any payment method that belongs to the Organization to pay for sites, subscriptions, and add-ons that the Organization owns.
After you set up the Organization, if you have any existing subscriptions under your personal account, you can transfer ownership of those subscriptions to the new Organization you just created. Once a subscription is transferred under an Organization the members (or your team) will have the ability to add/remove sites, manage add-ons, and use Growth Suite (if applicable).
Add new members to your Organization by clicking on the Members tab, then clicking the Add Members button.
The option also exists in the Activity tab. Just click Invite to Organization under the user image list.
Then, enter an email address to send out an invitation.
To remove a member, visit the Members tab of your Organization’s dashboard. Click the checkbox next to the name(s) of the user(s) you’d like to remove, then click the Delete Selected button at the bottom of the list.
If you have Growth Suite, your Organization is where you will enter all the information about your agency and brand: name, contact information, currency, logo, and even hex color!
Your branding is automatically applied to professionally-designed templates and the client portal, effortlessly making your agency look amazing and providing a white-labeled experience for your customers.
Every touch point will be branded; from your client reports to automated email to the client portal. This provides your clients with a consistent experience.
The final bit of setting up your organization — and maybe the most important part — connecting to your Stripe account. This is how you get paid! Customers can pay invoices with a credit card or transfer money directly to your bank account via ACH.
To manage your active subscriptions, head to the ‘Billing’ tab from your profile drop-down in the right-hand corner of your Flywheel dashboard.
The ‘Billing’ page may default to your personal account. To view the subscriptions owned by your Organization, click the drop-down on the right and select the correct account you want to view.
From the ‘Billing’ page you can view additional information on your subscriptions and payment methods. Have a second subscription under your personal account that you want to transfer to your Organization? This is where you can complete that step!
If you need to update the Organization owner at a later point, just get in touch and we’ll lend you a hand!
If you’d like to transfer a subscription from your personal account to an organization you belong to (or vice versa), this guide will walk you through every step.
Members of your organization can view the different available payment methods the Organization has and some info identifying the different payment methods. This allows members to select the correct payment method when making changes to the account.
All payment methods are encrypted at Flywheel, but members of your Organization will be able to see:
Members of your organization will not be able to see:
