Assign users workspace roles

  1. In the lower section of the Users tab, in the app user's row, under Workspaces you'll see a plus button (+) and up to two workspace tags. If the app user can access three or more workspaces, you'll also see a tag with the number of additional workspaces: hover on the tag to see a popup with the workspaces' tags. Here you can add or remove access to workspaces:
    • To add access to a workspace, select + to open a list of available workspaces, then resume this procedure at step 2.
    • To remove access to workspaces, select the x inside each workspace tag that you want to remove the user's access to. Repeat as needed.
  2. In the popup, select + next to each workspace to which you want to grant the user access.
  3. Set the workspace role by selecting it from the drop-down at the top of the popup.
