Types of Permissions and How to Change Them

When inviting members to a project, you assign them specific "permissions." These permissions can be changed even after the invitation has been sent.

For more information on inviting members, see Inviting and Managing Project Members.

An Owner can perform all actions within a project. There is no limit to the number of Owners you can add to a project.

Billing Owner

The "Billing Owner" is automatically assigned to the Owner who upgraded to a paid plan. The Billing Owner is responsible for payments charged to the registered credit card.

Note: This permission cannot be directly assigned to other members. Another Owner must change their own permission through the process. For more details, see How to Change the Billing Owner.


Editors can edit various data within the project, including design and CMS. You can set viewing restrictions on form responses for Editors. This is useful when you want Editors to edit but not view form responses. For more details, see Viewing Restrictions for Form Responses.


Tip: Writer permissions are available only on Business and CMS plans. The CMS plan allows up to 3 Writers, while the Business plan has no limit.

Writers have the most restricted permissions, allowing only some edits in the CMS dashboard and design editor. Writers can use the editor's Comment Function and Content Editing Mode to edit text, images, and icons, and to view and add comments.
