Infographic: User Types and Sharing Permissions Explained

One of the benefits of Smartsheet is the variety of ways that you can use it to share information. As you get oriented to using Smartsheet, you'll be more effective if you understand the differences between sharing permission levels and Smartsheet account user types. Here's an overview of the differences:

  • Sharing permission level is set by the person who shares with you.
  • User type is set when an administrator adds you to an account or when someone gives you access to Smartsheet by sharing a sheet with you (if you've been given access this way, you'll have the user type of free collaborator).

Use these visual guides to get up to speed with how sharing works in Smartsheet and how to distinguish sharing permissions from user types.
