Users and Recipients are essentially the same thing in PushMetrics.
It doesn't matter if a user is actively using the app or just passively receiving contents - both cases are technically represented as a user record in the PushMetrics app and can be accessed in the Settings tab.
However, we do give you the controls to decide what a user is allowed to do via user roles:
- The roles "account owner", "admin", "interactor" and "viewer" are what you'd traditionally consider a user - i.e. they can log in and interact with the application
- The role "recipient" is a passive role - recipient users can not log in to the app but only receive contents. The main reason for having them in the user list is to allow for an easy way to manage them and to reuse them in multiple reports or add them to user groups.
