Ability to assign a project to another user (access to the Designer for one project)

Ability to assign a project to another Webflow user such as a designer or a Webflow Expert. This allows clients to own their own sites. They can give access to a designer to build or maintain the project. Or, they can give access to an SEO expert to set up their site's SEO...

This can include the following:

  • Permissions to various areas of the Designer and the Dashboard
  • Duration of contract/assignment (recurring monthly, once until date...)
  • Payment is made to the assigned user/designer/expert similar to how Client Billing profit payments are made.
  • Some kind of security to ensures the assignee gets all his rights before the client/user can assign them.

    Clients want more access to adjust or edit their pages than the editor allows and need Designer access.

    That's exactly what we're dealing with. It's hard to explain how Webflow works to the client without getting them frustrated either. This is a flaw that definitely needs to work out in the future.

    Yeah this has pretty much caused our agency immense amount of headaches over the last year. Clients want more access to adjust or edit their pages than the editor allows and need Designer access. We then have to make them buy a NEW account, potenially loosing money they paid for their hosting fees to setup a new hosting plan and then we have to transfer the site to them. Then if we want to ever make edits we have to login to their account. Utterly ridiculous.

    Please. This seems basic. I need to collaborate on a site with another designer. But, I can't simultaneously allow them access to all sites as they are not part of my in-house team.

    I need this. My main issue is hosting.

    I made a seat for a developer into my team account to do custom coding for only one project.

    I’m paying for an extra login seat into this account to maintain hosting integrity.

    Unfortuneatly, I'm out of votes. But, I have only one client wtih Webflow, and they insisted premetively that they "own" their own site. So, in order to access their Designer (which they don't even use), I have to login with the email address they set up for me via their own company. Kinda goofy.

    FYI, if I recall, Sqarespace allows "sharing" full access to sites already (but, I know it's comparing apples to oranges here).

    SO: Off the cuff, "Editor" in settings should simply be "Collaborators" - and in the section that is now Collaborators, there should be separate Administrator, Designer, and Content Editors.

    My client is saavy enough that they control their own domain registrar (also their email provider), so it's also a wierd experience when I have to go to their office, logged in as the designer, and then tell them how to point their own registrar. If they were their own Admin, I woudln't even have to deal with that. I'd just... you know, design :-)

    WEBFLOW-I-712 – We have been having the EXACT same issue. This idea should not have been merged with WEBFLOW-I-1095 because I don't want to transfer sites to other accounts and lose ability to charge for monthly hosting and edits
