If you are an Admin of an Amara team, you can check boxes next to each team member to change their role or remove them from the team using the slide-up menu at the bottom of the page.

Go to Settings to manage how new users can join your team.

Changing a Member’s Role:

Admins of Amara teams can change a team member’s role to one of the following:

  • Novice 

  • Contributor

  • Project/Language Manager

  • Manager

Owners can additionally change a team member’s role to Administrator or Owner.

When an Administrator or Owner sets a team member’s role to Project/Language Manager, they must select at least one project or language for which the team member will have managerial permissions.

Viewing Role Permissions:

Go to your team Settings > Permissions page to learn what actions a team member can perform in each team role.

The changes that you make on the Settings Permissions page will update the table at the bottom of the page. This table shows actions that a member can or cannot perform in each team role and can help you answer the following questions about team members in each role:

  • Which assignments can they take?

  • Can they add, update, or remove videos in my team?

  • Can they add or remove members from my team?

  • Can they change another member’s role?

  • Can they create, edit, or delete subtitle requests?

Note: Team Admins can change team settings, edit projects and video feeds in addition to all other permissions.
