There are 3 different types of users in Slab, and each has a different level of access. Each user's profile will reflect their user type.
The majority of your users will likely be standard users, with a handful of admins and guests.
Standard users are the default in Slab, and have basic access.
Standard users can:
- Create and delete posts and topics
- Join topics
- Adjust the membership of topics they've joined
- Add new users
Admins have all of the standard user access, along with additional control over team settings. They'll have an admin badge:
- add new users
- access Team Insights
- edit users' profiles
- set up provisions
- set up integrations
- change authentication settings
- manage billing
- import content from other apps
- export all content in Slab
- join and adjust the membership of all topics, including private topics
Guest accounts give your team flexibility to add external users without granting them full access to your Slab. (They also aren't included in your total user count!)
They'll have a guest badge:
- View topics they've joined
- Create posts and subtopics in topics they've joined
- See or access topics they haven't joined
- Join topics without permissions
- Invite new users
- Create new parent topics
- Delete parent topics
You can set up a provision to determine what topics your guests will join upon onboarding, but you can always add them to other topics later.
