Pressable makes it easy for you to collaborate with other people on your website. This makes it easy for you to share credentials with designers, developers and other collaborators, while keeping your account and other sites in it safe and secure. Collaborator access will grant them site-specific access to MyPressable, the site’s wp-admin, SFTP, and phpMyAdmin.

Add a Collaborator

To add a collaborator to your project login to MyPressable, click the name of the site you wish to add the collaborator to, and scroll down to the Users section. Enter the collaborator’s email address and click Add.

Your collaborator will receive an email that looks something like this:

Collaborator Access

Collaborators only have access to the website they have been added to, and can only view/edit limited aspects of the site.

Removing a Collaborator

You can remove collaborators at any time by visiting MyPressable, scrolling to the Users section and clicking on the trash icon next to the collaborator’s information.

Also be sure to edit that user within your WordPress website to convert them to a “Subscriber” role


Collaborating on a Website

If you’ve been asked to collaborate on a Pressable website, you’ll receive an email asking you to create a password.

Once you’ve done so you’ll have access to your own MyPressable control panel, with your own SFTP details.
