Today, Vantage has launched team support to allow you to invite multiple members of your team to the same Vantage organization. All Vantage users have the ability to invite unlimited teammates to their organization at no additional charge.
Before, Vantage only allowed a single user account to view a Vantage organization. This meant that users would create a single account with shared credentials that other members of their team would share to login in and view resources and corresponding costs. Additionally, only a single user could receive email reports.
Now, Vantage gives users the ability to invite multiple members of their team to the same Vantage organization. Users may invite by email any number of other users from their account page and designate them as either "owners" or "members." Users with the "owner" role have the ability to extend invitations and revoke access to members whereas users with a "member" role have the ability to use Vantage to view resources and costs but not manage team members.
This feature is available to all users, regardless of their tier. To get started, head to the account settings page of your Vantage console to begin making invitations.
