Adding New Users to Bild and Existing Projects

Only Admins can add users to Bild. As an admin:

  1. Go to Company Settings in your global settings on the top right hand corner

  2. Click on the Users & Roles tab

  3. Click Add Users

  4. Type out the email address(es) of anyone you'd like to invite

    1. Press Enter after every email address so a bubble forms around their email address

  5. Specify that new user's role - Admin, Member, or Viewer

  6. Specify the new user's project access - No Access, Viewer, Collaborator, or Editor

  7. Click Add

See below for user roles and project access.

"No Access" to projects will not hide those Projects in the Bild dashboard, but those will be grayed out with a Lock icon.

Adding Users to Projects Individually

An alternative way to grant existing users access to Projects is in the Project Settings tab.

Insert an element

  1. Navigate to the specific Project you'd like to add users to

  2. Click on the Settings icon on the left hand side

  3. Select the Users tab

  4. Start typing out the email address of the user you'd like to add, then click on that User

  5. Specify their access level - Editor, Collaborator, or Viewer

  6. Click Add

Users must be invited by admins to join your Bild account first, and must complete their profile creation for them to appear as options for users to add to Projects.

Deleting Users

Similar to adding users, only Admins can remove users. This will remove the user from the Bild account completely.

  1. Navigate to the Users tab in your Admin Settings

  2. Click on the user to delete

  3. Click Delete

  4. Type out the name of the user as specified in the dialog window, and click Delete

  2. Go to Project Settings
