Organization Roles

Understanding user permissions will enable you to manage who can make changes that may impact other users within your Organization.

User Types

There are four user types at the Organization level:

  1. Owner
  2. Admin
  3. Member
  4. Visitor

Custom roles can be created based on the administrator and member role types. The table below describes the permissions for each built-in Organization role.

User Roles

Built-in Role/Role Type Definition/Permissions Custom Roles Available?
Organization Owner No
Admin Administrators have the same permissions as an Organization owner (listed above). Yes. Admin-type custom roles.
Member Yes. Member-type custom roles.
Visitor Visitors are members outside of the team or company that have been added as workspace collaborators. They can only enter workspaces they have been invited to. No


There are three different statuses:

  • Pending admin approval
  • Invited
  • Accepted

Invited members are invited but have not yet signed up as a Bluescape user. Active users have created an account and are currently able to access your organization

An email today informed me my access was changed from Visitor to Member, but this post does not explain the difference. Does this change allow me to access more functions?

Welcome, @burrittm :slight_smile: You are correct! This change allows you to access more functions. Specifically the ability to create and share workspaces with others.

I see what you mean by this topic not providing the information you are looking for. Our team will update it to make sure it’s easier to find the right information.

Great, thank you. Will the organizational roles post include any instructions on how to access and use these new functions?

Accessing the new functionality is automatic when you are upgraded to the new role. A topic I recommend reviewing is Sharing a Workspace (Web). As a member, sharing workspaces will be an important new function for you.

Great feedback about including direction to these articles from the organizational roles post. Thanks!
