[Note from Wrike] Hey there! Before you start reading, please note the information is kind of old now, and may not be totally accurate. Don’t worry, you can read this brand new post from Lisa which covers everything on this topic 🖖
Collaborators have a more restricted view within the Workspace and we frequently get asked what exactly a Collaborator's Workspace looks like. Check out the screenshots below to find out.
Tip: It’s easier to remember what a Collaborator can do vs. what they can’t. Collaborators can: change a task’s status, add comments, view existing Custom Fields, add and delete file attachments, and submit Request forms. Collaborators can’t: create new Tasks, Folders, or Projects, or edit the task’s description field.
- Have Inbox, My Work, Stream, and a Folder tree, but they do not have Dashboards or Reports.
- Can only see Folders and Projects which are shared with them (same applies to all Wrike users).
- Can see the List, Table, and Timeline views, but no additional views.
- Can change a task’s status.
- Can see (but not edit) a task’s description field.
- Can add comments.
For comparison, here is what a Regular User would see when logged into the Workspace.
- See all available Global Views (Inbox, Reports, etc).
- Have access to all available views (Table, Timeline, etc).
- Can create new tasks.
- Can add a task to Folders or Projects.
- Can view and edit a task's description field.
Check out the table here for a more detailed breakdown of what rights each user type has.
