Partner Levels & User Designations

Partner Levels (a subscription status) and User Designations (a user status) combine to determine the level of Platform benefits, rights and privileges users can obtain through the Partner Program.  Below are summaries of the relevant details for each.

Partner Levels

Partner levels are determined by activity at the organizational (subscription) level. As a reminder, every Spryng Professional subscriber is automatically a bronze-level Partner in our Partner Program.  While bronze-level benefits are pretty special in their own right, they get even better as your organization qualifies for higher levels:
