Up until now, the only way a billing administrator could access Sonix invoices, update billing, and add/remove users was by being added as a full paid user. This doesn’t make sense since the billing administrator typically doesn’t need to transcribe, edit, or view any transcripts.
So…we added a new role to all Sonix Premium & Enterprise Plans. It’s called the Billing Administrator Role and it’s completely free.
The Billing Administrator CAN…
View account invoices
Update billing information
The Billing Administrator CANNOT….
Transcribe new files
Access any transcripts
You can add/manage a billing administrator to your Sonix account on this page: https://my.sonix.ai/account/billing. Note that you can only add one billing administrator per account.

Now, you can better restrict access to individual files and folders.
Many users wanted to share transcripts with people outside their organization, but they didn’t want them to access their entire account; maybe an external editor or a client. That’s why created two new roles for our multi-user Premium and Enterprise customers: External Editor and External View Only.
It’s really easy to restrict certain users to files and folders as well. You can do that from the ACTIONS menu on your home page as shown below.
We’ve got a new feature we think you’ll love! It’s called: Status Labels
Our latest workflow feature is now live in Sonix! If you want an easy way to identify the status of a transcript (eg. Editing Complete, Ready for Review, etc), you’re going to love Status Labels. Simply select the status of your transcript and create your very own custom labels! 👏
Status labels is available in our Premium & Enterprise Plans. These multiuser plans are great if you collaborate or work with multiple people on projects. It’s a multi-user plan so you can set up each collaborator with different levels of access. The Premium & Enterprise Plans also include detailed analytics for the Sonix media player and priority support.
