What is a guest?

Guests are external and infrequent users who you invite directly to claaps or channels via email, but not to the workspace itself.

👉 Understand the different user roles and permissions in Claap.

Common use cases include:

  • Contractors or interns who are working on a temporary and scoped project.

  • Clients that you invite to collaborate on specific projects.

  • Friends, family, mentors, etc. that contribute to your work.

Guests have limited collaborative permissions:

  • They don’t have a workspace-wide access. They can only see and collaborate in the channels and claaps they have been invited in.

  • They can't create new channel or claaps.

  • They can’t edit or delete channels or claaps.

  • They can't edit workspace settings.

  • They can't see or add members to the workspace.

On the other side, they can:

  • They can see claaps and channels where they have been invited.

  • They can comment in these resources (if permissions are set to Can comment)

Inviting a guest

To invite external guest to a channel channel or claap, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the Share button at the top right of the channel or claap screen

  2. Enter the email address of the guest and click Invite

  3. The invited guest will receive an email with a link to the channel or claap

  4. If they don't already use Claap, they can sign up to access your page

Turn guests into creators

To turn a guest into a workspace member:

  1. Click on the name of your workspace in the lateral bar.

  2. Go to Workspace Settings > Members.

  3. Click on the Guests tab to list all the guests in the workspace.

  4. Click on the permission dropdown on the right of the user and click on Turn creator.

  5. That person will instantly have creator capabilities.
