This article provides answers for InVision V7. If you’re on InVision V6, read this article instead. Not sure which version you're using? Find out now.

To ensure you have the flexibility to establish what specific people can do to a document without affecting the document link, you can set document permissions for individuals as well as for the document link itself.

Setting document permissions for an individual

To set document permissions for an individual, open the document and, at the top right, click the Share button. To the right of a listed collaborator, click the drop-down and select the preferred permission setting—Can edit or Can review.

The default setting for all individuals is Can edit, so anyone you invite can edit the document unless you change their permissions. The document creator always has full permissions, ensuring that at least one person on your team can edit and manage the document at all times.

Setting permissions for a document link

To set permissions for a specific document link, open the document and, at the top right, click the Share button. On the Members & Guests tab under the To: field, click the Settings link and select the permissions you want to establish for all people with the document link.
