The Members view

Member roles

Project members are users who have access to some or all of the project's files. Members are either manually added to a project, automatically added when project files are shared with them, or automatically added if they are a User or Admin in the project's home organization

Each member is assigned a role. Below are the different member roles and the permissions they grant. Note that member roles only exist within the scope of a project; the same person can have different member roles across different projects.
