If you’re using the Team Edition of Brandcast, you have the option of making any website in your team’s account private. 

Websites within your personal account are always private (you’re the only one who has access to them.) If you’re a user of Team Edition, though, websites that you create within your team’s account will be public by default: that is, they’ll be visible and editable by all your teammates. 

There may be cases where you don’t want this -- you might prefer to limit access to only specific users on your team. This can be done by changing a website’s type from public to private.

To do this, open the User Management drawer by clicking the icon in your top toolbar, or selecting it from the “Studio” menu.

On the left-hand side, you’ll see a tab for each team you belong to. (If you’re only a member of one team, you’ll have only one option here.) Beneath it, you’ll see a list of all the websites currently in that account:

Make a Site Private

Select the website that you want to make private. On the right-hand side, you’ll see a button that you can press to make it private:

You can also click the small drop-down menu next to the site’s name, and choose “Private Website”:

Once you make the site private, it will automatically become visible only to you, and to the owner of your team’s account. (The owner always has access to every site within the account.)

Specify Which Users Have Access to a Private Site

Once you’ve made a website private, you can specify which users on your team should be able to access it.

Initially, you’ll see that all your teammates are “greyed out”:

This indicates that they don’t currently have access to this private site. (It won’t appear for them when they go to “Open Website”.)

To make the site accessible to a specific user on your team, locate them in the window and click the small checkbox under their name that says “Active Member”:

If you want to remove somebody’s permission to see a private site, just un-check this box once again.

Make a Site Public

Select the private website that you want to make public again. At the top-right of the screen, you’ll see a button that you can press to make it public:

You can also click the small drop-down menu next to the site’s name, and choose “Public Website”:

Once you make the site public, it will become accessible to the whole team again: all the other users on your team will be able to open it and edit it.
