Create sub-organizations from your Admin account

💡 Good to know
Sub-organizations management is only available on an Enterprise plan. For more information, check our website or get in touch with our Sales team.

From your Admin account, you can easily create sub-organizations and allocate monthly credits for emails, SMS, and users to each of them.

Create a sub-organization

When creating a sub-organization, you get to define its general settings, apps, and usage limitations.

💡 Good to know
The maximum number of sub-organizations that you can create is defined in your Enterprise plan. If you've reached your limit of sub-organizations, contact your CSM to increase it.

To create a sub-organization from an Admin account:

  1. Log into your Admin account.
  2. From the homepage, click Add sub-organization.

Step 1: General settings

Define the profile details and general settings of your sub-organization.


  1. Account name: enter the name of the sub-organization.
  2. Select a sub-organization group. To learn more, check the next section.
  3. Email: enter the email address of the main user of the sub-organization.
  4. Language: select the language of the sub-organization.
  5. Timezone: select the timezone of the sub-organization.
  6. Click Continue.

The sub-organization has been created. You can now enable the apps for the sub-organization.

Step 2: Apps

Choose which apps are enabled for your sub-organization. You can always manage which apps are enabled later. To learn more, check our dedicated article Manage the apps for your sub-organizations.

  1. Toggle the apps you want to enable for this sub-organization.enterprise_apps-enable_EN-US.gif
  2. Click Continue.

Step 3: Consumption limitations

Set the limitations for users and emails for your sub-organization.

❗️ Important
If you choose to set no limitation on consumption, credits that are over the pre-defined limits of your plan will induce overages, that is to say, additional charges.
  1. Invite members of your team to manage the sub-organization.
  2. For emails, use the slider to define the number of credits you want to allocate to the sub-organization.
  3. For SMS, enter the number of SMS you want to allocate to the sub-organization in the Monthly SMS volume field. Click Estimate credits to estimate how many credits you need depending on the destination and the number of messages you send monthly.
  4. Toggle Push to enable unlimited push sending.

You can always change the usage limitation later. To learn more, check our dedicated article Edit the usage limitations allocated to a sub-organization.

Create a sub-organization group

You can gather sub-organizations in groups to organize them. You assign sub-organization groups to admin users so they can only manage the sub-organizations in these groups.

  1. Go to Groups.
  2. Click + Create a group.
  3. Give a name to the group.
  4. Select the sub-organizations you want to add to the group in the dropdown list.
  5. Click Add.

You can then:

  • Click the pen and sheet icon next to the group name to edit the sub-organizations group.
  • Click the cross next to the group name to delete the sub-organizations group. The sub-organizations within the group will not be deleted.
  • Assign an admin user to the sub-organization group. To learn more, check our dedicated article Add and manage users from your Admin account.


The overview on the homepage shows:


  1. The number of sub-organizations you have added / The number of sub-organizations included in your plan
  2. The number of users you have added / The number of users included in your plan
  3. The number of emails sent / The number of emails included in your plan
  4. The number of SMS credits used / The number of SMS credits included in your plan
  5. The number of Push sent / The number of Push included in your plan

If you have set no limitation on the number of sub-organizations, users, emails sent, or SMS credits used, you can also see the eventual overages.
