Role types: org admin vs team member

Writer Team plans have two role types: org admins and team members. If you’re on an Enterprise plan, you’ll have an additional role type: team admin. You can learn more here: Enterprise Plan: Roles and Permissions.
Org admins have full access to Writer settings. This includes Writer customizations like Suggestions, Terms, and Snippets. In addition, org admins can access admin panel features such as Billing, Single Sign-on, and Security.
Team members have view-only access to Writer customizations such as Suggestions, Terms, and Snippets. While writing, they’ll receive Suggestions, get Terms checked, and be able to insert Snippets. However, they won’t be able to access any admin panel features or invite new users to your organization.
