Control who can see messages within an organization. Share specific channels with board members, customers, or vendors without needing to give them complete access to your company's communications.
Workspaces in Shortwave are comprised of members and guests. Workspace members are individuals that have full access to the workspace and its channels. Each member has an assigned role that determines their level of permissions.
Owner - Sole creator of the workspace, member with the most elevated permissions. An owner has the same level of permissions as an admin, in addition to being the only member that can delete and transfer ownership of a workspace.
Admins - Workspace members have permission to invite new workspace and channel members, adjust member roles, and manage billing.
Collaborators - Workspace members who can only create, join, and participate in channels.
Guests - People who only have partial access to specific channels within a workspace.
As an admin or owner, you can invite other people to join your workspace.
