Contributors allow you to manage roles and permissions for your site. You can grant as little or as much access to your site for other users to help manage your site as you wish.

Note: If you are on the Personal Plan, you will only be able to add one additional Contributor (for a total of two). All other plans allow for an unlimited number of Contributors.

Step 1 - Access the Permissions Settings

From your Site Manager, navigate to the Settings area and click the Permissions tab.

Step 2 - Add a Contributor

First, click the Invite button in the top right.
