Is it possible to assign Chatter user as owner to Salesforce Account?

3 Answers 3


No, it isn't possible. Chatter Free and Chatter Plus users cannot be account owners. Here's a list of things that Chatter Plus users can do: http://na8.salesforce.com/help/pdfs/en/salesforce_chatterplus_tipsheet.pdf (PDF)


They can't be owners, but they can be referenced in a non-owner User Lookup field

  • Are you sure about that? I just tested this in my org. I created a lookup to User on an Account, but I can't view my Chatter Only users in the list. Aug 9, 2012 at 19:11
  • That's strange. I had it in my prior org. Maybe it's just Chatter + users? Aug 9, 2012 at 19:48
  • Could be possible with Chatter +. I don't have any licenses to test that with. Aug 9, 2012 at 19:49

Yes, we have Chatter Plus users in our User lookups without doing anything special. I wish there was a list of things you CANNOT do with Chatter licenses. For example, I think we just stunmbled across that a CPlus user cannot create List Views.
