This help article is intended for PhoneWagon customers migrating to CallRail as part of CallRail's acquisition of PhoneWagon. If you’re not currently a PhoneWagon customer, use this help article instead to create and manage users in your account.
If you’re transferring from PhoneWagon to CallRail, you can invite your team to help you take calls and manage your new CallRail account. When you add a new user to your CallRail account, you’ll choose a specific user type for your teammate to ensure they have proper permission and access to your reports, data, and call history, just like you did with PhoneWagon.
To help you pick the right user role for your colleagues, use this article to compare and contrast permissions and roles between PhoneWagon and CallRail.
Recommended roles for CallRail users
For full instructions on creating and managing users in CallRail, check out this help article.
Administrators in CallRail have unrestricted access to your entire account, just like they did in PhoneWagon. These users can see and update billing information, as well as create other users, tracking numbers, and set up integrations.
We recommend setting up your PhoneWagon Administrators in CallRail as Administrators to retain their same level of permissions within your account.
Managers in CallRail have unrestricted access to the companies you’ve assigned them to. While they can set up tracking numbers and integrations for their companies, they can’t see any account billing information, nor can they create other users within your account.
We recommend setting up your Company Managers from PhoneWagon as Managers in CallRail.
Reporting users in CallRail can review call recordings and reports for each company they’ve been assigned to by an Administrator or a Manager. They can also take calls and classify their conversations by adding a tag, note, or lead status to a caller’s timeline. They won’t be able to update any settings, users, tracking numbers, or integrations. They also cannot see or change any billing information.
We recommend setting up your Call Managers, Global Call Managers, and Campaign Monitors from PhoneWagon as Reporting users in CallRail.

- Use the suggested next steps on the final screen to create another user or view all users within your CallRail account.
My Campaign Monitors in PhoneWagon only had access to specific tracking numbers within their company. Can I create a user that only has access to specific tracking numbers within a company?
In CallRail, users are assigned at the company level, and not at the tracking number level. If you’d like for someone in your account to only have access to specific tracking numbers, we recommend creating a new company and adding their tracking numbers to that company to keep their view separate. Here’s how to create a new company in CallRail:
Can I set the password for a user I’m adding to CallRail?
