In the gray box, labeled “Add team member” begin typing the name of the user you would like to add. Click on the name once it appears. Once you click out of the Team box, the users will be saved. Currently, all users will have the ability to write. We are working with WEAVE to create the ability to designate a user to have read-only access. If you try to add a user, but they do not appear as you type their name, they need to be added to the WEAVE system. Please contact Abbey Perkins to request that users be added to WEAVE.
