Granular permissions (per team or per project)

Add granular permissions for team members on a site by site basis, instead of on the account level.  Specific users to work on specific projects, in specific roles.

    • Team plan members share the same access right to all folders and projects.
      Inviting external designers and developers exposes huge vulnerability risks.

    • Transferring a site away for development is not appropriate in many cases. It does not protect the client’s interest and property ownership. This way is not ideal for any live site as well.

    • As an agency, we cannot provide “Designer” to a client by adding them as a team member, as that will expose all other projects.

    This!!! Webflow has fast become the go-to tool for all of our smaller web projects. The lack of user specific editor permissions is pretty much the only thing standing in the way of taking our bigger clients here as well.

    Please hurry with this one as it wouldn't really just be a nifty feature, but is absolutely key in terms of credibility and gdpr.

    Upon shipping this, soooo many WP sites will be coming your way fast!

    This is of paramount importance, we work with many freelancers, and it is not practical to give unfettered access to each person.

    This is extremly important. As a company we find oursleves considering other solution just because of this matter.

    Yes please. This will be helful if I can assign a person to work on a project for a limited time and then remove their login permissions once they are done with their portion of the project. Currently the Team plan allows for a minimum of 2 seats. I would like to have the option to add a temporary seat for a limited time period.

    Absolutely essential for a team environment. Permission controls to prevent edits are a must. I am trying to teach Webflow to a class of design students. Any student can edit each other's work. I'm reconsidering teaching this because of this lack of security.

    Can't believe this doesn't exist already.

    For collaborative work with individuals within an agency or freelancers you would expect to be able to give access to certain projects. This is the case on most PM systems such as teamwork etc.

    Much needed feature, please implement this soon, this is a massive hinderance to use at the moment!

    Yes please! We use 3rd party developers and animators and it's definitely not ideal to share all projects with every individual vs selecting specific projects.

    This is a really much needed feature of Teams.

    It would be super useful to be able to restrict collaborators to certain pages, folders, collections and functionality (such as meta data).

    The best implementation of this would probably be a simple role based permission system.

    As real world example: You have someone who just writes blog posts for your business (who could be external or internal to the business). Currently they would have access to everything on the website, including sensitive data such as form submissions (which is not ideal from a GDPR standpoint).

    This would be really useful. We often work with freelancers on individual projects and it would be great to give them a seat on our account and access to specific projects without them having full uncontrolled to access all the projects on the team. I'm a pretty trusting person, but that's a little too far for me!

    This would be helpful, the ability to allow editing of products of only a specified category would be handy too.

    Please add the ability to selectively apply a permission to users. Not all collaborators are created equal - their willingness to test before publishing, their testing rigor, and their grammatical prowess, are hardly ever equal. Its a lot of responsibility to add even a single collaborator that creates a number of unnecessary and avoidable problems related to publishing. Extending the control to directories would also be a welcome addition.

    I have another job that requires this feature.
