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

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 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: 

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.
