There are three types of team members in Katana: Owners, Users, and Operators.


The person responsible for originally creating the Katana account (i.e. not invited) is automatically the account Owner.

An account Owner has access to all Katana features and can manage the team and subscription. Learn more about adding team members to a Katana account.

The Owner role cannot be reassigned to another team member, it is permanently attached to the email and login credentials of the initial account creator.


Team members who join Katana via invite are called Users.

With default access, Users can access all core functionalities of Katana, except:

  • Inviting or deleting team members from the account

  • Managing subscription details and billing

Users access can be customized to allow admin workflows or restrictions to sensitive info Read more about User permissions.


Users of the Katana Shop Floor App are called Operators.

The Shop Floor App is a mobile-friendly web-based application for the production team on the shop floor to manage their tasks.

Operators only have access to their task list in the app and not to the Katana MRP main site. The app has limited functionality compared to the Katana MRP site and does not include any price- or cost-related information for orders and items.
