This doc only applies to projects on a self-serve plan

Free, Startup, Business, and Open Source plans read on! Projects that are part of an Enterprise Group please see our Enterprise User Management docs for details!


To manage who can administer your Project, go to Project Dashboard > Configuration > Manage Team.



Team members can be assigned one of two roles, Project Owner or Admin.

Projects can only have one Project Owner, all other teammates have the Admin role. The number of Admins allowed on a team depends on the project plan:

Add an Admin

To add an Admin, go to Project Dashboard > Configuration > Manage Team. From there, you can send an invite email to the new teammate. If the user already has a ReadMe account, they'll be added immediately to the project. Otherwise, they'll need to accept the invite and create a ReadMe account.


Invited Admins will receive an email from us:

from: 		[email protected]  
subject: 	You've been invited to a new project 🎉


Remove an Admin
