How to Grant Access to Microsoft Clarity

Microsoft Clarity is a web analytics tool that helps website owners gain valuable insights into user behavior and interactions on their websites.

As the website owner or administrator, you may for various reasons need to grant access to a website's data to another individual on Microsoft Clarity. That's, enabling them to access the data from their own accounts without having to share your account login credentials.

In this article, I'll walk you through the step-by-step process of granting access to website data on Microsoft Clarity.

Access Roles in Microsoft Clarity

In Microsoft Clarity, there are two types of roles for team members:

  • Admin: An Admin has full access to the project. They can view all data, edit project settings, add and remove team members, and change roles.
  • Team member: A Team member has access to all project data but cannot change settings or manage other team members.

The role that you assign to your team members will depend on their needs and responsibilities.

If you need the person to be able to manage the project or other team members, then you should assign them the Admin role. Otherwise, assign them the Team member role.
