Users are designated as admin, member or guest. What is the difference between these three designations?
Admin: An admin has the same type of access to a team collaboration room as the person that initially created it. This means that on top of being able to chat (via text, voice or video), they can also share files, create/assign tasks and, most importantly, modify the permissions of other participants.
Member: A member has the exact same permissions as an admin (detailed above), but with one important difference – they don’t have the ability to modify the permissions of other participants. This means that they cannot invite new members, change their permissions or remove other participants from the space.
Guest: A guest is able to chat via text, voice or video, but not able to share files via the ‘Posts’ tab, create/assign tasks or modify the permissions of other participants.
Can I upload and share my files with my teams?
Yes, you can upload and share files within each team room. Basic users receive 1 GB of storage space while Plus and Business users have unlimited space.
