Add edit permissions

Background

There are four roles available for a dataset: owner, manager, editor, and viewer. Each of them provides different permissions for making changes to a dataset. These permissions are summarized in the table below. You can find out more about permissions on the associated Pennsieve help page.

When you create a dataset, it is private and accessible only to you (you have owner permissions on the dataset). You can change who can access and modify your dataset by giving permissions to members or entire teams.
