User Permissions & Roles

Paid HelpSite accounts can invite additional user accounts so multiple team members can collaborate on a help site, or so you can invite users to have read-only access to view a private knowledge base. Admins can choose what each invited user has access to in your organization's account, by assigning a Role.

To get started, create a new Role:
