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.
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.
Admins are the most powerful role in Dovetail. Admins can manage all workspace settings, create and manage project extensions and templates, and can contribute and analyze data. Admins are often researchers.

While admins and users take up a seat in billing, viewers are unlimited and free. For more information on seats and pricing, see Pricing model overview.
