When you create an experiment, you are the only user that can add content to it. If you are working with a colleague on the experiment you can invite them as collaborators.

There are two types of collaborators:

  • A contributor can only add, delete and change the sections that they themselves have added.
  • A co-editor can also add, delete and change the sections that they themselves have added, but also add, delete and change in the sections added by the author.

Both you and your collaborators will be able to see the experiment after it has been locked.

By clicking on the boxes under the Contributors / Co-editors you will be able to choose a Contributor / Co- Editor from the users that have access to the project.
