Space Access and Permissions

When collaborating on projects, it’s important to have clear and defined levels of access and permissions in the space. This ensures that space users have the appropriate level of access to complete their tasks while also protecting sensitive information.

There are 3 levels of access to a space

  • owner
  • member
  • visitor

Each time you want to add a user to the space, you need to decide what level of access to the space the user will need.

Only space users can see and enter the space. The space is invisible to other users.
