How To Add A Contributor To Your Website on Wix
Updated: Jul 4
How Do You Add Collaborators To Your Wix Website
Wix has a variety of contributor roles that allow people to access your website, the role you select will depend upon the level of access you would like to grant. Within each contributor role you will see a list of 'permissions' allowing you to control what access is granted within each role.
Send An Invitation To A Collaborator
The person who you are sending the invite to will need to have a Wix account. Apart from that the process is pretty straightforward:
Step 1. From your Wix dashboard, click 'Settings' on the left sidebar menu.
Step 2. Select 'Roles and Permissions'
Step 3. You will now see your current 'Roles and Permissions'. To invite a new collaborator, click the blue 'Invite People' button.
Step 4. Now just add the email you wish to send the invite to and then select the contributor role. You can select multiple roles depending on the level of access you are looking to grant.
Once you have entered an email and selected the role(s) simply click the blue 'Send Invite' button. They will receive an email confirming you have invited them as a contributor to your website, once they accept the invite you will receive confirmation. To check on the progress of your invite you can go back to the 'Roles and Permissions' screen.
