Guests overview

  • Updated

Invite people from outside your organization to join your Workspace as guests.

People in a guest role will only be able to access the items that have been shared with them. You can also allow individual guests to use certain features.

For example, you hire a contractor who is helping you complete a project. You can give them access to track time so they can record their hours worked on specific tasks.

A client wants to follow the tasks in their project. You've included the budget, cost, and profit margin in Custom Fields. You can hide all Custom Fields from the client, or just the fields you don't want them to see.
