Main roles


A Viewer can access the content after being invited to a page.


An Editor can create and edit content. The Editor can also invite additional Editors or provide access to Viewers.


An Owner can edit and delete the complete Style Guide/Project and invite or remove other team members.

Account Admin

Manages the account and has complete control of configurations and account details. Only Admins can access User Management, Targets, and Groups settings.

Special roles

Translator (Style Guide only)

Using the language switcher, the Translator makes your Style Guide multilingual by translating existing text. However, the Translator cannot create new content.

Reviewer (Workspace only)

With Viewer-permission within the Workspace, the Reviewer can give feedback and comment on project assets.

User Roles Management (Admins only)

Account Settings

Account Admins can define, in the account settings, who are allowed to create Brands, Guidelines, Projects, and Libraries. Account Admins can also upgrade hooks based on their roles.

Targets ( Enterprise Only)

The Targets feature allows Admins to create different access and viewer levels and hide some content from certain viewer groups. A common use case for this is to set up external viewers or high-level public guidelines.
