There are three roles that a person can have in Markup, Playback or Backstage. They can be a manager, a contributor or a viewer. What they can do in each product depends on their role. See Update workspace 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.
Managers can manage project and repository settings, create and manage project extensions and templates (in Markup), and can contribute and analyze data. Managers are often researchers.
Contributors can’t manage the workspace, however they can view, contribute, and analyze data within projects. Users are often researchers, product managers, or designers.
Viewers have read only access to projects and cannot edit anything. They can still subscribe to project and story notifications and add comments. Viewers are often stakeholders, managers, clients, or other teams.
While managers and contributors take up a seat in billing, viewers are unlimited and free. For more information on seats and pricing, see Pricing model overview.
Granting admin access in the workspace
Anyone in a manager, contributor or viewer role can be granted admin access. With admin access, roles can:
Manage workspace branding
Manage authentication options
Delete the workspace
Those granted with admin access do not have to occupy a paid seat in the workspace.
