Adding Project Users and Managing Permissions

Jennifer Sneider Updated by Jennifer Sneider

Studio Managers and Feature/Series Owners can access this feature.

  • Studio Managers can add Series/Feature Owners and Department Users.
  • Series/Feature Owners can only add Department Users.
  • The Series/Feature Owner permission should be reserved for Production Coordinators and higher, as well as Accountants.
  • Crew members should be added to their specific departments only. This allows them to view their own Assets, but no one else’s.

Adding Series/Feature Owners

  1. While logged into your Series/Feature, click Team in the top navigation menu.
  2. Click the orange (+) button.
  3. In the pop-up window, select Feature Owner (or Series Owner, if a Series).
  4. Enter the user’s email and title/role on the production.
  5. Determine the user’s View Historical Assets permission by selecting or deselecting the checkbox.
  6. Determine the user's View Asset Search permission by selecting or deselecting the checkbox.
  7. Click Save.

Adding Department Users

  1. While logged into your Series/Feature, click Team in the top navigation menu.
  2. Click the orange (+) button.
  3. In the pop-up window, select Department User.
  4. Enter the user’s email and title/role on the production.
  5. Select the department(s) the user can access.
  6. Determine the user’s permissions by selecting or deselecting the checkboxes.
  7. Once the user’s information and permissions are entered, click Save.
Warning: This user will only have access to the department(s) within this specific Series or Feature. They will not be able to move or delete any Assets.
