The person you are trying to add must have logged into Tufts MediaSpace at least once in order for you to be able to find them and add them to the channel. If the user's name does not autocomplete when you start typing it, ask the user if they have previously logged in.

Choose a role for the new member from the "Set permission" menu.

Each role carries a different set of permissions:

  • Member - View channel content only.
  • Contributor - View channel content and add media to the channel.
  • Moderator - View channel content, add media to the channel, deleted media from the channel, and moderate the channel
  • Manager - View channel content, add media to the channel, delete media from the channel, moderate the channel, and manage the channel. Channel managers can also create playlists and access the playlist embed code.
