How to add a new account manager

This article explains how to set up a member of your practice to manage their own FreeAgent clients.

Please note that you need to be a senior account manager to set up a new account manager.

If you need to update an existing account manager's details, find out how to edit or delete an account manager.

Begin by logging in to your Practice Dashboard and selecting the 'Account Managers' tab.


This will display any members of your practice who are currently set up as account managers. To add a new account manager, select 'New account manager' at the top-right of the screen.


Enter the individual's name and contact details.


Senior account manager

If you want this person to be a senior account manager, tick the 'Senior account manager?' checkbox. Please note that senior account managers can view all of your practice's clients who are using FreeAgent, set up new account managers and assign clients to different account managers.


Add account manager to group(s)

If you’d like to add this person to an account manager and client group that you’ve created, tick the ‘Add account manager to group(s)’ check box and tick the check box for each group you want to add them to.
