This page is relevant if you are the organization Administrator, or your organization's Administrator has enabled you to access the user management functionality.

Adding a colleague or collaborator to Rabbet

1. Navigate to the 'Admin' page.

2. On the 'Admin' page, click 'New User'.

3. Enter the new user's details and set the Permissions and Project Access accordingly. A permission that is toggled to the right and displays a blue-filled bubble indicates the permission is ON. You may toggle on 'View All Projects' to give user access to all projects on your portfolio, or you may select which projects you would like the user to have access.

Click 'Save' to add the user to your organization's Rabbet account.

*Note that clicking 'Click here for more information...' directs you to this help page.
