In every series there are supporting roles that end up becoming essential. So much so, that they often go on to have more prominence than the main roles: for example, Barney Stinson in 'How I Met Your Mother', Jack Sparrow in 'Pirates of the Caribbean' and so on and so forth. 

In Genially the same thing can happen: sometimes a guest deserves to be a starring member of your team and access everything that belongs to the workspace. Here we'll tell you how to go about this process. 

Add your guest as a member

It’s important to remember that only Owners and Administrators can make a guest a member of a workspace. To do this, you’ll need to:

1. Go to the workspace settings.

2. In the Members tab, find the guest in the list of people working in the workspace.

3. Click on the word Guest, on the top right next to the bin.

4. Click Add member.

5. All set! They’re now a member of the workspace.

*Tip: To find the guests in your workspace more quickly, you can search by name in the search box.

Bear in mind that this person will now occupy a seat on your team and that, in order to add them to the workspace, you will need to have free seats. If you do not, you’ll need to buy more seats. What happens when we add a new member to a workspace? Find out in this tutorial.
