Understand roles for team members

Learn about the difference of teammates being admins or members.

Updated over a week ago

When inviting a team member to Filestage, you can assign them specific roles -Admin, Manager, or Member - based on their responsibilities and access requirements.

Moreover, these roles can be easily switched later on, giving you the flexibility to adapt as your team evolves.

Below, you'll find a table that provides a quick overview of each role's permissions with a more in-depth explanation of each role and its associated permissions. This will provide you with detailed insights into what each team member can or cannot do.
