Hello, I’m Amalie from Systematic Excellence Consulting and today I’m going to go over ClickUp Member.

So I’m just in one of our templates here and to set this you can set those at the folder or the list or even the task level. But for right now, I’m just going to go over it at the, we have a folder here and we have a list of– I’m just going to go over in the list, I’m going to click on the three dots, I’m going to go to Sharing and Permission. And then inside of here, you can see that we have members or guests, but we’re gonna go over a member.

So a member is a paid user of your ClickUp account. They can create spaces, folders, lists, tasks, they have access to all public spaces, you can set permissions where they don’t have access to, specific spaces, or lists, or folders or even tasks, you can set them as private, and then they wouldn’t have access unless you specifically added them.

They can also see everyone in the workspace, and they can share things with guests and other members. But they can’t add new members. They can also make spaces, folders, lists, tasks, private if they want. And only but only if they are added or are the owner of the item, okay. And you can change the user’s access by clicking on one of these.

So you have full access where they can create tasks, they can edit them. So you can select that option, but then they wouldn’t be able to create tasks or if you just want them to be able to comment. If they’re assigned to a comment, then they can change the status. And they can also change assignees. But obviously, they can comment inside of tasks. And then you can also put members to view-only or read-only where they’re only able to comment or edit.

And these are very similar to the permissions that are allowed for guests as well. But you have a little bit of flexibility. So you can either give them full access, or give them limited access by allowing them to edit comment or view only. And again, members are paid users of the software.

Alright, so that is ClickUp members. And in my previous video, I went over user roles. So if you have questions about that, I would check that video out as well. And in another previous video, I went over adding users. So if you have questions about that, again, I’d watch that video as well.
