Members of an Organization

Updated on March 8th, 2023

With Orgs, everyone on your team has the ability to start the next project or make changes to an existing one. No need to grab the company card or slow down client work waiting for access to the “company account.”

Wondering what else the members of your Organization can do? Here’s a short list.

  1. Access the Organization’s sites via SFTP.
    When someone becomes an Org member, they get immediate SFTP and Dashboard access to all sites in the Org. This also changes SFTP access; it adds an “org-” identifier on the folder, and all sites now exist under the Org folder instead of a user.
  2. Add or remove Add-ons.
    Add-ons like Performance Insights and Managed Plugin Updates can be enabled, disabled, or removed by members of your Organization.
  3. Clone or delete sites.
    Yes, members of your Organization have the ability to clone or delete sites; for this reason, you should only add people you trust to your Organization.
  4. Access the entire Flywheel dashboard (including billing).
    Every member of an Organization has full owner privileges for each site owned by the organization.

    1. Members of your Organization can access things like Staging, Logs, Stats, the database, and everything else in the Flywheel dashboard.
    2. They can also use any payment method that belongs to the Organization to pay for sites, subscriptions, and add-ons that the Organization owns. This means Organization members can also cancel subscriptions.

If you do not want somebody to have this level of access, consider adding them as a Collaborator to the site instead.


Each member of your Organization needs to have their own Flywheel account (which is free). Once they create a Flywheel user, you can add them to your Organization, and they can log in to access all of the Organization’s sites in their own Flywheel dashboard.
