Company Managers have access to the complete list of users from all the separate Huddle accounts that exist under your company. They can also see a list of all the workspaces that exist under these accounts. 

They are able to remove users from multiple workspaces and accounts in one click as well as invite new users into workspaces. Company Managers also control whether or not Public Link is enabled for your company and if you have an email whitelist covering some or all of your workspaces. 

 

If you are a Company Manager you will be able to access the company page by clicking on the blue arrow next to your profile and then selecting your company name in the drop down list.
