Managing users in DSM

Follow

With Design System Manager (DSM), you have varying degrees of control over who can access your organization and library. This article explains how to add, remove, and edit users at both the organization and library level.

Some user roles are limited to the DSM Enterprise plan. For a thorough explanation of available roles and permissions at both the organization and library level, check out this guide: Roles and Permissions in DSM

Adding users to the organization

Only DSM admins can add users to an organization.

To add a user to your DSM organization:

  1. Sign in to the DSM web view and, in the left-hand navigation, click People.
  2. In the Invite collaborators field, type the email address for the person you want to add. 
    If you are on an InVision Cloud Enterprise plan or using Cloud V7, the person must already be a user on your InVision Cloud team.
  3. If you are on the DSM Enterprise plan, select a role for the user (Viewer, Editor, or Admin). If you’re using DSM Free, the role is locked to Admin.
  4. Click Invite.

The collaborator's name will appear as Pending until they accept the invite.

Any admin or editor can invite other DSM organization users to a library.
