Roles and permissions

Updated 4 months ago by Stuart


There are three roles in Carrot:

  • Administrators manage the team, invites, and billing. They can also read and write posts.
  • Contributors can read and write posts.
  • Viewers can read posts. Like the others, viewers can also add reactions and comments to posts they're reading.


Posts are organized in sections, and those sections can have one of three levels of permission:

  • Team
  • Private
  • Public

By default, sections are visible by your Team unless you make it Private. If a section is Private, then only team members you invite can see anything posted there.

If you choose Public, then all posts in that section are visible by anyone with the URL. That means anyone inside or outside the company can find or view those posts.

How did we do?
