On a project, each user has permissions that define what features and workstations they can use. The permissions are usually set when the project is first created, but you can change them at any time by editing the project.

There are three types of Permissions:

  • Member role - Use to assign a role. The features that are available vary depending on the user's role.
  • FTP access - Use to control whether a user can upload or download via FTP
  • Workstation access - Use to assign one or more workstations to a user.

To change the permissions of a user who is a member of your project:

  1. Log in to SimpleCloud as a studio owner or studio manager.
  2. On the dashboard, look in the Projects section and select the project that you want to edit.
