Permissions in Pumble #

Owners are creators of the workspace and will have that role visible in the Administration page. Owners can assign roles in Pumble and invite and revoke invitations for new users. Only the Owner role can transfer the ownership to another user by opening the Workspace settings, clicking on the three dots next to the users name and choosing Edit Account type. From there the Owner can pick to assign the Owner role to another user.

Administrator roles can invite new users to Pumble and revoke invitations. They can also change the account type (role) inside Pumble and create new channels.

Users with regular user roles don’t have access to workspace settings, they can create new channels and change their profile settings.

Guests are users with access to specific channel(s) only. They cannot be a part of User groups. Check out this article to learn Guest role permissions.
