Guest Accounts

by Jaime Iniesta

Since our launch, we’ve strived to provide a smooth workflow for individuals and organizations looking for a tool to check large websites.

One of the most requested features by medium and large teams has been to provide a way to allow other people to use the Rocket Validator account subscribed by the organization.

Until now, the only way to achieve that was by sharing the account credentials with the rest of the team, which is not recommended for obvious reasons.

Today we’re announcing the new Guest Accounts feature, to make this task easier and provide you with more control over the usage.

A Guest Account is a way to invite other Rocket Validator users to share your subscription resources in terms of validation credits and features, without compromising your main account credentials.

Your guests don’t need to pay for a Rocket Validator subscription, instead, they’ll use your main account credits and features, for free. They’ll be able to use all the features in your Pro or Enterprise subscription, including accessibility and HTML checks, schedules, deploy hooks and muting rules. Guest accounts can’t invite other guests, and can’t manage the host account.

As a host, you define exactly how many allowed credits each user is granted each month, which will be taken from your main account when used. You can also monitor their usage and see the reports, schedules, and muting rules they generate. And you can adjust their allowed usage at any time, or cancel their guest account when it’s not needed anymore.

All you need to start inviting your guests is a Pro or Enterprise subscription.

With each Pro subscription you get 5 guest accounts, which are designed for small and medium-sized organizations. For larger organizations, you can subscribe to the Enterprise plan, which gives you 100 guest accounts per subscription. If you need more than that you can just subscribe to additional packages.
