How to add a contributor to a site

Updated on

Contributors can author content in a site if they have been given permission to do so. In order to give a contributor authoring access to a site you have two options:

  1. Add a group the contributor is a part of to the site's Site Users & Groups > Assigned Groups section.
  2. Add the contributor to the site's Site Users & Groups > Assigned Users section.
