  • Will automatically be on the same plan as the team owner
  • Does not have any admin rights
  • Can only view other team members' documents if granted permission

Team viewer

  • Is typically external e.g. an accountant or lawyer who sometimes need to be able to access documents
  • Does not have any admin rights
  • Will not be put on a plan when added as a team viewer
  • Neither the team owner nor team members can see their documents
  • Can only view team members' documents if given permission
  • Can be a member or owner of another team
