What is a Hootsuite organization?

A Hootsuite organization consists of individuals, teams, and shared social accounts. Each Hootsuite account can create one organization. But members can belong to many organizations and teams. You could have an organization called Social Marketing, for example. In that organization, you could have teams like PR, customer support, and marketing. These teams include individuals from the larger organization. You can assign teams which social accounts to monitor and what tasks to work on in Hootsuite.

You can control the level of access that organization members have using permissions. The person who creates the organization is the Super admin. Super admins have the highest level of management permissions. Super admins can grant other organization members super admin permissions.
