GatherContent really starts adding the most value to your web projects when you have your team and collaborators working in the platform with you.
Yet, we've seen time and time again, inviting team members is one of the last things people do when setting up their account.
The main reasons for this are usually:
The belief that everything needs to be setup and perfect in GatherContent before you start inviting people
Not being clear on what roles and permissions will be right for different people on your project
Not being clear on what invited people will be able to see and do
In this article we want to help you overcome these uncertainties so you can invite your team to start producing content sooner. Win, win!

A few Items, with their structure and guidelines established, to assign your team members to
Your workflow to be clear and familiar to your team
Ideally the first couple of dates and deadlines confirmed
