How do I add user accounts to a Project site?

Project Site Organizers can add user accounts to a Trunk Project site with the following roles:

  • Guest: Primarily read-only access. This role is recommended for observers of the project.
  • Organizer: This role has the full set of permissions and is allowed not only to build and manage a project site, but also to assign roles, and change permissions. It is similar to an Instructor role on a course site.
  • Participant: Can participate fully (including editing) in the resources tool, read and write access to all other tools. It is similar to a Student role on a course site, however Participants can upload files to the site Resources tool.
