Constant Contact Toolkit Accounts
A Toolkit Account is a new account type that Constant Contact offers. All account users are being switched over to the Toolkit account type. It restricts how many Admin Users an account have to just one. The following applies to a Constant Contact Admin account:
- All old (non-toolkit) Constant Contact accounts still offer the ability to have more than one admin user.
- For old (non-toolkit) Constant Contact accounts that have since moved to toolkit accounts, all admin users were grandfathered in.
- For all new toolkit Constant Contact accounts, they are limited to one admin user.
