Account Users

Add or Remove Administrative Rights

Understanding Administrative Rights

Users with Administrative rights on an account (account administrators) have certain privileges other account users do not have. They can access Online Bill Pay and manage other users on the account (add/remove/change users).

The first user who creates a TDS Online Account is assigned administrative rights and therefore becomes the account administrator. That user can then add additional users and assign administrator or not, depending on the level of account access they want the user to have.

Non-administrators are only able to make changes to their user name. They do not have access to Online Bill Pay.

Are you an Account Administrator?

To find out, log in to your TDS Online Account. Then, look in the Manage Account menu. “Manage Users” will be listed in the menu if you are an Account Administrator.
