User Role Privileges

The following table is a comparison of all available user roles in Gather. A checkmark () indicates the user role can manage the feature. In most cases, the ability to "manage" a feature means being able to turn it on or off. 

A few important details:

  • Only Admins can access the Space dashboard. 
  • Moderators (Mods) are being deprecated from remote work Spaces.
  • Member is a role unique to remote work Spaces. A Member can add, but not remove, other Members. 
  • Some features are only available on Premium Spaces with an upcoming or active reservation. 
  • Some features are also only available in remote work Spaces or only in events/other Spaces.
