Bit is a robust platform that was built for teams of all sizes, regardless of physical location and time zones to collaborate and work together on projects, deliverables, proposals, client content, published content, daily work to-dos, and more. Bit's rich documents make collaboration a breeze as teams can communicate in an integrated way around ideas, goals, visions, initiatives, reports, processes, analysis, client communication, vendor/partner projects, and much more.

Adding collaborators to a workspace is an important part of using Bit to it's full potential. You and the collaborators who join your workspace can work together in real-time.

There are three ways to add collaborators to your workspace:

  1. One method is by adding existing team members who are part of your Bit organization.
  2. Another method is to invite brand new members to your Bit organization.
  3. The third method is to invite free guests to your Bit organization. Guests can only comment or read documents.
