User Management

Instead of using the 'Teams' tool, you will use the Company level Directory tool to manage your employees and collaborators. Because not all of your users and collaborators will work on every project, you will also have a Project Directory for each of your projects. Users and companies added to a Project level Directory are automatically added to the Company level Directory for a single source of truth for all your users.

Add Collaborators

With your upgraded account, you can invite collaborators to your projects. Build out your broader team by creating companies and adding collaborators to your Directory.

 

Permissions

Instead of assigning one of three permissions to a user, you will now use the Company level Permissions tool to create permissions templates that give access to tools and actions for the tools your company has access to.

Existing user permissions are carried over from your free account. You can update those permissions templates or create new ones.

You can manage user permissions in the Permissions tool, or when editing the user in the company's Directory.
