Which Rights Define Heavy, Regular and Light Users?

Follow Print

You can set the rights per user group within the Permission Management section.

A user group can be defined as heavy users, regular user, or light users. The classification of users as heavy, regular, or light is a licensing result.

Within your contract with Bynder, the agreed number of heavy, regular and light user licenses bought is defined.

The rights of each user group vary depending upon their group type:

  • If a user group has one or more rights that belong to the rights of the heavy user, the group belongs to the heavy users.
  • If none of the rights of the heavy users are selected for that group, but it does have one or more rights that belong to regular users, the group will belong to the regular users.
  • If the group does not contain any heavy or regular user rights, it belongs to the light users group.


This is the default setup of Bynder. It could be that during the negotiations of your contract with Bynder, some other user groups are created, such as workflow users, for example. However, Bynder does employ a default setup module to define what rights belongs to what group. Your setup may differ from this default if exclusive agreements were made during negotiations.

The default rights are split up as follow:

    "View collections from others" is also a REGULAR USER option. Please update article to reflect.
