When you add a new member to an organization, they’re automatically assigned to the role Member. To assign a new role to a member, click on their role dropdown.

If you’re just creating the organization, you can simply assign a director/lead as an Admin so that they can assign roles to others.


Organization members can have three different roles: Admin, Editor, and Member.

👑 Admin

Owner of the organization is also considered an Admin.

  • Invite and remove organization members
  • Tag organization members
  • Edit organization billing information
  • Edit organization name and logo
  • Delete organization

… and all of the below.

🎩 Editor

  • Create, edit, delete projects and styleguides
  • Upload designs
  • Change name and density of projects and styleguides
  • Add projects and styleguides to Slack
  • Create, edit, delete and tag screens
  • Create, edit and delete colors
  • Create, edit and delete text styles
  • Delete all notes

… and all of the below.

👓 Member

  • Access all organization projects
  • Access technical specs
  • Download assets, code snippets
  • Add notes
  • Edit and remove own notes
  • Invite members to the projects

Aliens, project members who are not members of the organization, can only add notes and invite other Aliens to projects. Aliens do not count as paid members.

If you have teammates like Project Managers, clients, stakeholders, you can invite them to your projects separately. As Aliens, they'll still be able to view designs and add notes. 

⚠️ Note that aliens can not access technical specs, download assets, code snippets, or upload designs.

Assign roles to multiple members at once

You can also select multiple members by dragging and assign a role from the “Assign Role” button.

☝️This only applies to those on the Organization plan. If you're on a different plan check out: Assigning roles to project members on the Free, Starter and Growing Business plans
