Invite content collaborators

When you set up a CMS site plan or higher, you get free access to the Editor of that site. You can also invite collaborators (content editors or store staff) and give them permission to edit a project's content (text, links, images, CMS, products) through the Editor.

If you're on a Team plan, all members of your Team can access the Editor on any website within your Team, and you can invite up to 10 Collaborators per site, as well. Additional collaborators cost $6 per month per person as well.

Add collaborators

You can add collaborators to a project in your Project's Editor settings. You can access these settings from within the Designer or from your Project settings.

Access the collaborators settings from the Designer

When you're in the Designer of a project, you can access the collaborators settings from the "share" menu in the top toolbar.

Invite collaborators from within the Designer.

Add collaborators in your Project settings

From the project settings of the site you want to invite Collaborators to, go to the Editor tab, and click the plus button to add a new Collaborator. Enter the person's email address in the Collaborators field, and click Invite.

Your new collaborator will need to accept the invitation using the link they receive in the confirmation email.

Collaborators invite with Whitelabeling turned off

Invite collaborators on a whitelabeled Editor

If you are using Webflow CMS with whitelabeling turned on, then your content editors will not get an email from Webflow. Instead you will provide them with a direct link. 

See How to enable Whitelabeling for a Webflow CMS site.

Create an Editor account

After following the confirmation link in the email, Collaborators need to create an Editor account by setting up a username and password in order to login to your site's CMS.

Create you Editor account

Collaborators can access the Editor by adding `?edit` to the end of the site’s URL (i.e. “www.your-site.com/?edit”) Then they can log in and access the Editor by clicking the "Edit site" button at the bottom right of the browser.

The Editor account is separate from your Webflow account. As a site owner, you can't access the Editor by logging in through the Editor. You'll need to access it through your Dashboard, project settings, or designer.
