About workspace roles

There are three workspace-level roles that a person can have in Dovetail. They can be an admin, a user, or a viewer. What they can do in Dovetail depends on their role. See Update user access roles to learn how to change someone’s role.

Everyone has a secure account

Regardless of role, each person in your workspace has an individual and secure account to log in to Dovetail using an email address and password; their Google or Microsoft account; or single sign-on.
