User Management

User management is available to Coaches (who can add/manage all users in an instance) and Managers (who can add/manage users on their team).

To access the user management page, click on the hamburger menu and select Manage Users.

User Management Enhancements

Individuals can now have multiple managers! There are two types of managers: Primary and Secondary. The primary manager is the first (main) manager the user receives by default. The secondary manger is assigned to the user via “Manage Users” or import. The user cannot exist without any manager, although we don’t require the user to have a primary manager. If the primary manager is removed, the secondary is not updated to the primary.

Note: Secondary and further managers are treated the same as primary managers in the system. They will receive coaching activities, access to team dashboard, and more functionality based on their assigned users.

In order to assign, change, or remove additional managers, go to Actions from the Manage Users page and then select the checkbox next to the user you would like to change:

From this view, you can assign a manager, remove a primary or secondary manager, or change a manager. Note: removing a primary manager does not automatically make the secondary manager the new primary. In this case, the user will not have a manager.

Once an additional manager is assigned, it will appear like this next to the selected user:

Create Users

To create new users in your instance, click the Invite Users button

There are 3 methods to create a new user in your instance: Invite (via email invite), Import (via csv/xls/xlsx file), and Text input.

Invite users: select the users’ Role, Manager, and input their email address. This workflow sends the user an email invitation to SalesHood.


They will need to access the email to activate their account. If the user already has an active account in SalesHood, they will instead be directed to login to their main instance to switch between instances.

You can also add the user to one or more groups from the Invite Users window.

Import users: upload a csv, xls, or xlsx file with columns for First name, Last name, Email, Title, Role, Team (managers’ email), and Segment. You can now assign users to multiple groups and managers by separating each group or manager with a semicolon “;”. Note: the first manager listed in the file will be the primary and each manager after will be the users’ secondary manager.

If your instance uses password authentication, we will ask you to set a password for the imported users.


Text: you can import users via text input by using this format (each user on a separate line): First Name, Last Name, Email, Title, Role, Manager’s Email, Segment, Groups. Similarly to our other options for adding users, you can assign a user to multiple groups or managers by adding a semicolon “;” between each group or manager.

If your instance uses password authentication, we will ask you to set a password for the imported users.

Manage Users

In the lefthand column, you can search and manage Groups, Teams, and Segments. In the righthand column, you can search and manage Users.
