As you add members to your Workspace, you can control who can access sensitive controls like billing details, or take important actions like publishing the website.
In this lesson we’ll cover all the details you need to know about Workspace roles and permissions, including:
At the Workspace level, you can invite and set teammates as owners, admins, and members, with varying levels of permissions for each. Let’s walk through each of the roles and how you can set and modify them.
When you invite a new member to your Workspace, you can select their role prior to sending the invite.
You can also modify your members’ roles in Workspace settings > Members tab.

On a site-by-site level, you can control which members can publish sites or take administrative actions like deleting or transferring sites out of your Workspace.
By default, all Workspace members are able to design and publish all sites in your Workspace, and Workspace owners and admins can take administrative actions as site admins for all sites.
To edit site-level permissions for teammates in your Workspace:
In this section you’ll see a list of all Workspace members as well as their respective site roles. Workspace owners can only be assigned a site admin role, but all other Workspace members can have 1 of 4 roles assigned to them, with varying levels of permissions for each. Let’s walk through them.
Members with a Site admin role can:
Members with a Can design & publish role can:
Members with a Can design role can:
Members with a Can design (limited) role can:
Because members with this role can create new classes, that functionality extends to creating new combo classes from existing global classes, too.
Members with the Can design (limited) role can override individual global class’s inherited values (e.g., individual “hero-section” and “grid” class values) in a new combo class. However, the overridden values in the combo class won’t affect the original values of the individual global classes.
If any sites in your Workspace use either a CMS, Business, or Ecommerce Site plan, those Site plans allow you to invite clients, teammates, or other contributors as content editors. Content editors can add CMS content and edit page settings (like SEO metadata or Open Graph markup) in the Editor.
You can control which content editors are allowed to publish the entire website:
In this section you’ll see a list of all content editors, whether their invite is pending, and their respective content editor role (after their invite has been accepted). You can assign 1 of 2 roles to content editors, with varying levels of permissions for each. Let’s walk through them.
Content editors with a Can edit & publish role can:
Content editors with a Can edit role can:
If you’ve restricted any content editors from publishing, they will still be able to publish individual CMS items that don’t impact any in-progress designs. However, they will not be able to publish the whole site at once, which can safeguard against accidentally pushing in-progress work to the live site.
