Learn the different permissions for inviting others to collaborate in your library

Your library's Share button allows you to invite other users (who may not necessarily have Kotobee accounts) to collaborate with you in the library through various accounts.

This will open the Share permissions dialog box.

Enter the user emails that you'd like to share access with. If there are multiple users, separate them with commas.

Select the Right Permissions

For any user, you can set a different combination of permissions, to limit his scope and prevent any harmful actions. This is also useful to moderate upload books, and review them first, before publishing them.

There are currently 9 different supported permissions. Note that some types of the permissions may already contain other permissions. Such cases are referenced below using an asterisk (*) under the description.
