Hubs include three basic levels of access. Each level of access has standard permission sets. Standard permission sets are built to stack so that each role also contains the permission sets of the roles below it. Custom roles and permissions sets can be created for your organization, but the inclusion of these additional roles needs to be discussed and agreed upon during your hub kickoff meeting.

You can add group members to your hub through the Hub Admin Panel. When you add a group to your hub, all group members will be listed as active members in your hub. To add hub members who are not associated with a group take the following steps.

Edit members

You can change a user's role or contact information using the Edit feature. 

  1. Inside the Members tab of the Hub admin panel, select a user
  2. Select Edit
  3. The edit tab will open and you can edit the user's role, status (active or not), and Display.
