In order to get the best experience when using Read, we highly recommend that every user creates their own account. While we do not explicitly prevent multiple people from sharing a single Read account, we would strongly caution against doing so.
Read is designed around the assumption that each account belongs to a single person. To that end, there are some key limitations that could make sharing an account problematic:
- Read uses your connected calendars to automatically join and record your meetings. You can only connect one account for each of the calendar integrations (Google, Outlook, and Zoom), so unless you are all sharing the same calendar accounts as well, you won't be able to have Read auto-join everyone's meetings.
- Read matches the participants in a meeting back to their Read account (if they have one) in order to compute things like coaching metrics and ownership of action items. If you have multiple different people trying to use the same Read account, we likely won't be able to resolve all of their identities back to the account, causing people to miss out on things like coaching and action item tracking.
- Features like For You, Coaching, and Meeting Policy all assume a single person is using the account. If you combine multiple people in a single account, then the data and recommendations will get muddled and probably less useful.
