Who can access your Workspace settings?

You must be an owner or admin to access these settings, which include security and permissions. 

Plans overview

What's the difference between the free and paid plans?

Some features have a limited number of uses on both free and paid plans. After you reach the limit you'll need to upgrade. For example, Free Forever offers 3 uses of Whiteboards, Unlimited offers 10, and Business and above plans offer any number of uses. 

More advanced features are available on paid plans, from the comprehensive Unlimited Plan to our most customizable Enterprise Plan. Check out the full comparison of plans.

Not everyone in my Workspace needs to use the paid features. Can I just upgrade individual accounts?

Plans are applied to an entire Workspace. All members in a Workspace have access to the same features.

Can I transfer a paid plan to another Workspace?

Plans aren't transferrable. Each Workspace needs to be upgraded separately.

Member and guest seats

How do member seats work?

A new member seat is automatically added when:

  • You invite a new member or admin.

  • You invite guests and you don't have any available permission-controlled guest seats available.

On a paid plan, when you add a member, we charge your default card. We process a one-time, prorated charge. You're charged only for the time remaining until your plan renews.

How do paid plan guest seats work?

If you want to collaborate with someone outside your organization, you can invite them as a guest.

There are two types of guest seats on our paid plans:

  • Free guest seats: View-only access. Can't be part of a Team.

    • You can have an unlimited number of free guests.

  • Paid guest seats (also called permission-controlled guests): Can have any permissions. Can join Teams.

    • The number of paid guest seats varies by plan.

Each paid plan includes a number of permission-controlled guest seats. For each member you add, more guest seats are added.

  • Unlimited Plan: 5 permission-controlled guests + 2 for each additional member.

  • Business Plan and higher: 10 permission-controlled guests + 5 for each additional member.

For example, your Workspace is on the Unlimited Plan with just you as the Workspace owner. You start with 5 permission-controlled guest seats. You invite 9 guests with specific permissions. We charge you for 2 member seats to add 4 permission-controlled guest seats to your Workspace.

If you don't have any paid guest seats available, a new member seat is automatically added to the number of paid guest seats available when:

  • You invite a guest with permissions other than view only.

  • You add a guest to a Team.

Add or remove members and guests

We need to add someone new to our Workspace. How will that be billed?

When you invite someone to join your Workspace, we'll process a one-time, prorated charge based on the remaining time until your next renewal! You'll be charged only for the time remaining until your plan renews.

For example, say you pay $60 per member. You're 6 months from renewal. When you invite a new member, you're charged around $30, not $60. You're only paying for the 6 remaining months til renewal that the new member will access your Workspace.

Note: If you convert a guest to a member and don't have any available member seats, you'll be charged for an additional seat.

What happens when I remove a person from my Workspace?

Their seat remains open. If your Workspace has an open seat, you can fill it by adding a new member or converting a guest to a member for no charge.


How do I set limited permissions for members or guests?

Through permissions settings, owners and admins can limit a member's access.

All paid plans include free unlimited view-only guest seats. On all paid plans, you can also add a limited number of permission-controlled guests.
