There are 3 different types of users in Slab: standard users, admins, and guests.
Each type has a different level of access, and each user is attached to one 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
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:
Guest accounts give your team the 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.
