User types in Pipedrive: deals access (BETA)

Breandan Flood, June 13, 2022
Note: Deals access requires a paid seat in your account. The deals access user type is only available for accounts with our global user management beta feature. This feature is currently available to a closed group of users.

Deals access allows you to use Pipedrive's core sales functionality. By having access to deals, you will have access to your pipeline, leads, deals, contacts and all related features. Within deals, users are assigned visibility groups and permission sets to control what they can see and do in the account.

Assigning deals access

Any user with management access can assign deals access to other users. To do this, go to Company settings > Manage users. You can then click on the three dots "..." beside the user you would like to give deals access to.

Manage Users 2

You will then have the option to toggle on deals access, as well as select the user's permission set and visibility group.


Users with deals access will have access to our deals section with the pipeline, as well as our Leads Inbox.

Additional groups for users with deals access

When granting a user to deals access, you will have to put them under a permission set of either admin user, regular user, or, if you are on the Professional or Enterprise plan, managers.

Regular Users

Admin users – Admin users have access to all of the deals, contacts and features in the account. They also have the ability to:

Regular users – A regular user is the default name for users who are not admin users, or not within another permission set in Pipedrive. Regular users have deals access and can use the core functionality in Pipedrive. Based on the chosen options in that permission set, the user may have limited access to viewing and changing certain items in the Pipedrive account.

Managers – If you are on Pipedrive's Professional or Enterprise plans, you have additional permission sets. The Manager permission set gives you an extra set so that you can give some users more permission within the account without allowing them full visibility within the account. Users on the Professional plan will have the manager permission, and users on the Enterprise plan can create unlimited additional custom sets.

For more information on permission sets in Pipedrive, you can read this article. You can regulate what deals or contacts they can view or what features they can view by editing their visibility groups.
