When you invite guests to your project, you can decide whether they are also able to upload content or only comment.

In this article, we’ll explain:

Invite Guests to a Project

By default all projects are private until you create a public share-link or invite guests with their email addresses. Guests can only access projects that they have been invited to see. Also, when initially invited, guests have comment-only access.

To invite a guest to a project, you can invite users one of these three ways:

By enabling and sharing a share-link for a project, guests will be able to access the project with the link. When accessing the project, they will be asked to leave their email so you know who has seen the project. Guests can share this share link with their colleagues.


To invite with a share-link, follow these steps:

  1. Click the share button in the top right

  2. Enable the share-link

  3. Share the share-link via email, Slack, SMS, etc. with your reviewer

Any guest that accesses Oroson with a share link will have 'Comment Only' permissions. You can update this by changing their permissions.

By enabling the share link and inviting a guest via email, a public share link will sent to them so the can access Oroson. When accessing the project, they will be asked to leave their email so you know who has seen the project. The emailed link is sharable, so guests can share this share link with their colleagues.

To invite via email with an enabled share-link, follow these steps:

  1. Click the share button in the top right

  2. Enable the share-link

  3. Add the email address of the guest you'd like to invite

  4. Optionally, add a message

  5. Send the invite

By inviting a guest via email and not enabling the share-link, a magic link will sent to their email so only the authenticated invited user can access Oroson. The emailed link is not sharable. You can learn more about Guest Security in this help article.

To invite via email without an enabled share-link, follow these steps:

  1. Click the share button in the top right

  2. Ensure the share-link is disabled

  3. Add the email address of the guest you'd like to invite

  4. Optionally, add a message

  5. Send the invite

Once your reviewer has been invited, they will be able to access Oroson without signing-up for an account.

Review which Guests have accessed your project

In Oroson, you can always see anyone that has accessed your project even if they decide to not leave any comments. When someone enters your project for the first time, they are asked to leave their name and email. This gives your team log of all project viewers.

To review who has accessed your project, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the project

  2. Select the circle avatars in the top-right, this will open a drop-down

  3. View the names and emails under 'Guests'

If the Guest has a name and an email address listed under the 'Guests' section, they have accessed your project.

Guest Permissions

There are two main types of permissions for guests. These permissions set the precedence of what is expected from the your guest.
