User roles allow you to give each collaborator different levels of access, whether that's read-only mode or edit - it's perfect for working with clients, stakeholders and managing your organisation within Marvel.

User Roles

Editor - This is the default role in Marvel, typically for designers and creators. It allows the user to add, edit or remove images, collaborators and settings on projects.

Reviewer - This is a 'read-only' permission which prevents the user editing or removing the project settings, images or collaborators. Reviewers can see all team projects.

This is a great role for internal stakeholders who just need to sign in to Marvel to view projects and leave comments.

External Reviewer - This is a 'read-only' permission which prevents the user editing or removing the project settings, images or collaborators.  External Reviewers can only see projects they have been added to specifically.

This role is particularly useful for freelancers or external developers who should not have access to wider team projects, just the specific ones you select.

Account Admin - Account admins can add and remove people to your team plan, create teams and change user roles.

Note: Anyone you add to your team will be set as Editor by default.

How to edit the role of a user on a plan

  1. Head to your People section 
  2. Find the user > Options

If you work in a company where you have different divisions, clients, skill-sets or locations, teams are a great way to organise those groups.

A great example of teams in use is within an agency where the London and New York offices have separate teams, all under the same Marvel account.

Note: This is a feature on the Team Plan. Each person you add will be automatically upgraded and added to your plan, meaning they'll have access to all our premium features.
