It'd be nice for freelance designers to be able to be simply just "added" in a design capacity, to any account, and act as the design worker, with access only to create new email messages, artwork, etc; and if you could then provide a simple workflow for approvals, etc. That would be a great feature.

THEN, that would allow Emma to offer freelance marketplace for designers and copywriters to bid for jobs and you could take a small percentage of the work that was commissioned.

Thanks for writing! It sounds as though you’re looking to have a login that only has permissions for the Campaigns page, not Audience or Response; is that right? And that login would be able to access multiple, unrelated accounts?

Just want to make sure I’m on the same page when I take this to our product teams!

That's exactly it, Katie. Then I could hire people, or ask my Marketing Agency, to log in, access my account, design an email and then I could send it out as needed.

Alternatively, as a future enhancement, the Marketplace concept would allow me to find some designer to put something together for me fairly easily.

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the feedback. Definitely a cool concept. We've tossed similar ideas around in two different ways: built-in collaboration among multiple users within an account, where a designer could be added to your account with specific permissions for the purposes you described, and designer-specific accounts, where a designer could publish assets (templates, icons, etc.) to an enhanced version of our template gallery. We're calling that our marketplace.

We have a lot on the roadmap for 2014, but I'm hoping we can make some strides in the direction you're looking for late next year. Would you be open to reviewing concepts with us when the time comes? It would be great to have customer feedback early in the process as we further prototype and plan this out. Thanks again.

Hello there! We've been chatting through this some more and do intend to allow multiple users next year. We're still talking about what access those users will have -- whether it's simply multiple usernames or usernames that can only access a specific section of the app -- and we'd love to get your weigh-in.

Are you up for taking the survey in this conversation?

We're interested in this feature as well. Any updates on its availability?

Thanks,
Ken

Hi Ken! There are no updates so far, apart from the knowledge-gathering survey I linked to above. I'll be sure to update this thread once there's something new to report.
