This user makes up the majority of users in Hive and has access to projects they were invited to or created themselves, as well as full app functionality. They have the ability to change project settings.


This user has access to everything Members have as well as control over Workspace Settings.

System Admin

This user has access to everything Admins have as well as access to all projects in the workspace, including the ability to self-add to projects, delete any projects and full workspace settings control.
