Single email logins- convenient or too much trouble?

Welcome back for another week of Tech Tuesdays.

Does your business make the mistake of relying on a singular email login for all of your employees? It is often believed that having one email login for your business equals boosted productivity and convenience. 

However, here is a list of problems you may encounter if you entrust all of your employees to use a singular email account:

- If one person has trouble logging in, then all employees can be locked out, losing billable hours or business for the whole organisation,
- You would need to remember to reset the login details every time an employee leaves your business so that they no longer have access to your account and confidential information,
- Internal information cannot be secured, unlike how having separate accounts would allow you to create a separate set of permissions for each user,
- If an employee accidentally deletes a file on the account, it will be gone for everyone.
