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

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

Admins have all of the standard user access, along with additional control over team settings. They'll have an admin badge: 

Admins can:

Guests

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: 

Guests can:

  • View topics they've joined
  • Create posts and subtopics in topics they've joined

Guests can't:

  • 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.
