Roles in Workspaces

Understanding Roles

Roles allow you to control what features a member has access to in a workspace. Assign roles to set what members can do in a workspace. Workspace admins can assign roles to members in a workspace.

Permissions, on the other hand, determine the level of access to documents or data. Set permissions for a member in combination with their role to provide the overall degree of access needed in a workspace.

Types of Workspace Roles

There are two default workspace roles available today with more coming. Each role has its own level of access to features.

  • Workspace Admins can update workspace settings, manage workspace members and groups, manage workspace content, and move files between workspaces.

  • Workspace Members can view other members in a workspace and access files and documents in the workplace.
