Invite and Manage Users

The Mixpanel administrative system includes organizations and projects. An Organization is the controlling entity that links projects, accounts, and a plan together. Each organization has a single Mixpanel plan associated with it and that plan is what determines the data volume limits and features available across all projects in the organization. Click here to see a list of all the Organizations roles and their permissions.

A project is a container for your product's analytics data, including saved entities like custom events, or saved reports. Projects house the events, properties and user profiles sent to them which can then be queried with Mixpanel’s web interface and APIs. A single organization can contain multiple projects and each project’s data tallies are summed together to give the organization-level usage. Click here to learn about project settings.

Setting a Default Role on a Project

Sometimes there are projects you wish everyone in your organization to have some baseline access to as some role. One common case of this is if your organization makes use of Just in Time provisioning to automatically add users to your org. In this case you can invite "All Users in the Organization" to the project as any Project Role that you have permission to invite. Note that this role also applies to any Service Accounts you have added to the organization. To assign baseline access:

1. Follow the above Invite Users to Project instructions until you see the below modal

2. Select All Users in the Organization

3. Choose the Role you wish all users to have. Any users manually assigned roles will have both the "All Users" role and their manually assigned role

4. Click Invite

5. You should now see a banner in the Project Users section showing the default role you selected


To edit this role you can click the pencil icon in the banner, which will bring up the below modal.

To remove this default role click the trashcan icon. Note that this will not remove everyone from the project - it will only remove users who have not been manually assigned access and are not Organization Admins or Owners.

Request or Approve Access to a Project

You can request access to a Mixpanel project if a report link is shared with you. When you request access to a project, an access request email is sent to the project owner. Project owners and admins can approve access requests in Project Settings
To protect against phishing attacks, we display the following warning in the access request email if an access request is made from an email address that is not in your organization. 

Remove Users

You can remove and manage users in a project or organization.

Remove Users from a Project

  3. In the "Project Users" tab, you will see a list of your project members. Click the check box next to one or more user's names and click the Delete button that appears at the top of the list.


When removing project members, anything they’ve created (like report bookmarks and notifications) will remain and will not be deleted.

Troubleshoot Project Invitations

No Access to Project After Invitation Sent to a Mixpanel Account User

Before contacting Customer Support, follow these steps if you were invited to a Mixpanel project and have a Mixpanel account, but can't access the project.

  1. Check your Project Menu in the upper left corner of the Mixpanel UI.
    • If you already had a Mixpanel account when you were invited to the project, you will not receive an email. Instead the project will appear instantly in your Project Menu.
  2. Request a project member to invite you again
    • If you received a project invitation email and then created a Mixpanel account without using the link in the invitation email, you need to be invited again. Once you are invited again, the project should appear in your Project Menu.

No Access to Project After Invitation Sent to a Non Mixpanel Account User

If you were invited to a Mixpanel project and do not have a Mixpanel account, you should have received an invitation email.

If you do not see a project invitation email in your inbox, check your spam folders for an email formatted as follows before contacting Customer Support:

From:        Mixpanel <>
subject:    Mixpanel - Invitation from [PROJECT MEMBER/OWNER]

Body of Message: “...invited you to check out their analytics project and we’re excited to have you join their team. To get started, just click the link below to dive into the team’s data…”

Note: If your company uses Single Sign On or Two Factor Authentication, contact Customer Support.
