External employees

External employees are users who are considered to be outside of your company while still having limited access to some of its resources. You can't create or invite external employees. All users with access to your company's Yandex.Metrica tracking tags are automatically converted into external employees.

Example

Your company uses a Yandex.Metrica tracking tag that can be accessed by a few outside users. If you link this tracking tag to your company, all users with access to it will become external employees. Such users can only access the tracking tag by default, but you can change their settings or make them your regular employees.

External employees don't have access to the following features:
