Role types in Workspace
What are the different types of roles in Workspace?
Workspace has two types of roles: Admins and Guests.
The Admin role is designed for you and your colleagues. Admins can see everything and perform all actions in a Workspace.
Admin-only actions are:
- invite users to a Workspace
- (un)lock a top-level folder
- add/rename/move/delete data collections
- set top folders/files to private
- perform an export to a Vault
Admins can open multiple Workspaces within their Organization while Guests can only collaborate in the Workspace they have been invited to. If you are an Admin and want to learn more about managing users, visit this article.
The Guest role is designed for external users. They do not belong to the organization, therefore they cannot create new Workspaces or invite new users. Guests cannot lock a top-level folder when it is set to done nor perform an export to a Vault.
