Understanding the number of accounts you have left for your planBack to top
Depending on your plan, there are limits on the number of Staff Accounts you can add.
The number of Staff Accounts you have left is displayed next to the New Staff button with the YOU HAVE # LEFT label, for example, YOU HAVE 1 LEFT.
A banner appears on the page when you have reached your plan limit. You are prompted to upgrade your plan.
Anytime you change the status of a Staff Account (enable, disable, archive, or unarchive), refresh the page to see an updated YOU HAVE # LEFT.
