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:
- Add a group the contributor is a part of to the site's Site Users & Groups > Assigned Groups section.
- Add the contributor to the site's Site Users & Groups > Assigned Users section.
This article will show you how to give a specific user permission to edit content in a site.
Note: We recommend using groups to manage site access permissions whenever possible.
Navigate to the site settings page.
- Navigate to the site you to which you want to add the author.
- Select Site Users & Groups
- Select Assigned Users
