What's and How Parent & Child Accounts Work in Upmind

In Upmind, you can now set up parent and child accounts. This system is particularly useful for businesses especially if you need to control and managing multiple accounts under a single umbrella

Introduction to Parent and Child Account

Parent accounts have administrative privileges and can manage multiple child accounts. They can do settings and permissions such as impersonation or inheriting payment details

Child accounts are essentially sub-accounts of a parent profile. When one client is designated as a child of another, it gains certain functionalities and permissions under the supervision of the parent account. One notable feature is the option for child accounts to inherit and utilize the parent's saved payment details

Parents can impersonate their children but this can be disabled by the child.



Only staff can establish parent-child relations
