Share your project and invite collaborators

Learn how to share your Webflow project with a read-only link. Find out how this is different from inviting collaborators and setting up team accounts.

Note: We’re transitioning to Workspaces, and are in the process of updating our content. Visit the Workspaces blog post to read more about these updates and changes, or visit our updated lesson on sharing a read-only link. You can also learn how to check if your account is on Workspaces.

In this lesson:

  1. Share a read-only link
  2. Invite collaborators
  3. Use team accounts

Share a read-only link

If you’d like to share your project on the Webflow forum or with a colleague, you’ll probably want to protect your work by sharing a read-only link.

From the sharing menu in the top right (to the left of Publish), toggle the Share read-only link to on. Now you can copy the link and share it wherever you like.

The share project dialog box is in view. There is a copy button to copy the share read-only link. Below the share read-only link section is the invite collaborators button in its own section.

The people you share this link with will be able to see your project, but changes won’t be saved.

Invite collaborators

Inviting collaborators is a great option when you have clients who want to add or update content.

To invite collaborators, go into that same sharing menu and click Invite Collaborators.

The invite collaborators button is highlighted on the Share project pop up dialog box.

Now, under Collaborators, choose Add a Collaborator, enter an email address, and click Generate Invite Link.

Two steps are displayed highlighting the process of adding a collaborator. The email field is filled out and the send invite button is green and ready to send.

This link will give collaborators access to the Editor where they’ll be able to see and edit content. Any changes they make will be saved.

Collaborators won’t have access to the Designer, so they won’t be able to make changes to layout, styles, or interactions.

Use team accounts

Team accounts let you invite team members to the Team Dashboard where a group of people can access a shared area, create, and edit projects.

To create a team account, head to your Webflow Dashboard. In the top right, choose Teams from the Account dropdown menu.

Now you can create a new team or add people to an existing one.

Two steps are side by side. The teams link in the account dropdown is highlighted on the left. The teams dashboard is on the right.

Go ahead and share your Webflow project!

Each option gives collaborators a different level of access:

  1. Read-only link: Collaborators can see the project
  2. Collaborator link: Collaborators can see the project and edit content in the Editor
  3. Team account: Collaborators can see the project, edit content, and change layout, styles, and interactions
