Organizations allow you to segment who has access to what projects in your company. Your company will be represented as an Organization, let’s use ACME Corporation as our example.
ACME has a few people inside their organization, some who need full access and some who just need access to one project.
- Owners – Get full access to both view and edit the Organization and all Projects
- Members – Get access to a subset of the Organization projects
- Teams – Where you give members access to a set of projects.
The best way to think about this relationship is:
Owners will create Teams to assign permissions to all Members.
You can create two types of Teams:
- Admins – These teams have full access to administer the projects in the team. They are allowed to change all of the settings, set notifications, and perform any action under the Admin tab.
- Read Only – These teams are only able to read and search inside the documents.
ACME would set up Owners of their organization, for example Frank Roadrunner would be an owner. He has full access to the organization and all projects.
Wile E. Coyote is a contractor, and will just have access to the new project Road Builder.
Roadrunner would set up a Team called Contractors. That team would have Read Only access to the Road Builder project. Then he would add Wile E. Coyote to the team. This would give him access to just this one project inside the organization.
