How to invite teammates to Secoda

One of the first things you'll be prompted to do when you open the Secoda app for the first time is invite people that you work with. Only workplace admins are able to invite new users.
To start inviting teammates, go to the Settings page by clicking the ⚙ button in the bottom left corner. From here, click Members.
On this screen, you'll be able to see the plan level that you and your team are on, and the number of seats this plan includes. You'll also see a Viewer invite link to send to teammates (who will be added as Viewers by default).
If you're adding multiple teammates at once, we recommend using the "Invite members" button so that you can add them in bulk.

Assigning Roles

In this same screen, you can view current members in your Secoda space, their emails, and the role that they have within Secoda.
You can edit teammate roles by clicking on the role button that is beside their name and info.
For more on what permissions certain roles have, check out Roles.

Deactivating Members

To Deactivate a member from your workspace, click Deactivate beside their name. The user's name will still appear on resources that they had previously owned, but will have a strike through their name. This can be helpful context to know who had the historical knowledge of a dataset.

Groups & Teams

Creating Groups and Teams will be important for user management. Read more about user management here:
