Definition of a Team Member in Project Insight

Project Insight offers two tiered pricing for the cloud or SaaS edition - power users and team members. These tiers are designed to allow your team to grow without increasing your hosting fees dramatically. The tiers are clearly marked in the 'add user' form when you add resources. The top check boxes are power users and the bottom ones are team members.
