Hi Beril,

 

Below Table gives the picture and more clarity on what is Read only access and Managed Read only access. Difference is only about one feature and that is User who has Managed Read only access can unlink manager accounts. See this:-

 

 

Account Access level Email-only Read-only Standard Administrative Managed - Standard Managed - Read-only
Can receive notification emails and reports
Can sign in and run reports  
Can browse the Campaigns, Opportunities, and Tools tabs

 

 
Can unlink manager accounts    
Can view and edit any part of an account and its campaigns, including Billing      
Can give account access, change access levels, and can cancel invitations from other users

HI @Beril C,

you have to enter the AdWords account in question with an admin mail. Then this admin user can change the role of others. It's not possible to do this from a MCC account.
The best way is always to create an admin mail, invite other mails and connect with MCC. The danger of not changing Managed Read only to Read only is that this read only mail can unlink from your MCC and sometimes Your credit card is still in the unlinked account.
