1. Why Shift for Teams?

Unlike having individual licenses, Shift for Teams provides you with streamlined billing and easy license management. Shift is a platform that allows you to add all your emails and tools in a single, easy-to-use window. Increase collaboration, and get the most out of your tool stack. No more forgetting about that project management tool you bought!


As a Shift for Teams user, you get all the same benefits that you would as an individual Advanced user (unlimited email accounts, unlimited applications, access to extensions, access to Workspaces), with the additional features of license management and unified billing. Shift for Teams makes license management easy, especially as your team grows and expands. More information on what an enterprise team plan entails, here.

3. How much is Shift for Teams?

Check our latest pricing here. 


4. Can I control what apps my Team Members can add to their Shift setup?

No. Each individual team member has control over their own Shift setup and can add whatever emails, apps, and workspaces of their own. If you’re looking to add some control and structure to your members’ setups, we recommend creating Workspaces and giving your team members view-only access. This way, your team members would have access to the Workspace along with all the applications and bookmarks that you've added but cannot change how the Workspace has been structured. Read more about Workspace Permissions, here.


5. Can I set a default setup for my Team Members?

No. Each individual team member has control over their own Shift set up and can add whatever emails, apps, and workspaces of their own.


6. Do I automatically get reimbursed for unused Shift for Teams licenses?

No. As a subscription service, when you purchase additional licenses for your team, they are purchased on an annual basis. Credit is not offered on unused time for any vacant or unused licenses. 


7. What is the difference between an Admin and a Member on Shift for Teams?

The Admin is the team's main point of contact for all account changes and billing-related inquiries. The Admin has access to the Team dashboard and is able to purchase additional licenses as well as assign and unassign purchased licenses as needed. A team Member does not have the ability to purchase, change billing, or alter the team. More on getting started with Shift for Teams, here.


8. Is it possible to have more than one Admin for my Team?

No. There cannot be more than one Admin per team.


9. I got a discount for Shift Advanced. Does it also apply to my Shift for Teams account?

No. If you purchased Shift Advanced at a discounted rate, your discount will be voided and the difference between what you paid and the regular price of Shift will be added when you purchase a Teams plan. More on coupons, here.

Exceptions are for those who qualify for our Non-Profit and Educator discounts


10. Is there any Shift for Teams discounts available?

Any promotional offer is applicable to individual subscriptions only. See our coupon policy.
