Access Roles - the Gatekeepers

Access roles (Owners, Currators, and Members) create a hierarchy of who can add information and invite other users within a music space. By default, you are the owner of spaces you create - but how do change these access roles & what power do they grant you?

Editing Roles

If you swipe to the right side of the app, you can see the members listed in a space. By tapping on yourself or any other member in this space, you can see practice analytics and their role within the space. There are three access roles:

  1. Owner - the crown icon
  2. Curator - the chef hat icon
  3. Member - the graduation cap icon

As a rule, you can only change the access role of people who are beneath you. Moreover, only owners and curators are able to add sheet music to a music space. Members are viewers rather than creators. Lastly, anyone who has just been added to a space starts out as a member - so make sure to change their access role if you want them to be able to edit a space with you.

Owners are the highest on the totem pole. The only added value owners have is to elevate curators/members to owners. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Swipe to the right-hand panel of the app so you can see the "@memberName" within the space
  2. Tap on any member
  3. Tap "Update Role"
  4. Select the Role you want to update them to

Now that this person is a co-owner of a space, they have the power to demote you all the way down to a member. Be cautious of this before granting someone ultimate power over your music repertoire!!

Curators are second in line to ultimate power. They have the ability to add pieces of music, create new channels, and demote/promote members. Their one limitation is that they cannot change the access role of the space owner. In order for curators to be created, an owner has to click on a newly added member and elevate their status. Follow the steps above to do this

Members are viewers of a space. Aside from being able to see how others interact within a space message in channels, they have no power to add music, create new channels, or update anyone's role.

Elevating your role

You can send a message to any chat channel calling out the owner/curator "@owne/curator" to update your role. This will send the owner a notification and help him or her elevate your status. If you don't know who the owner/curator is, follow these steps:

  1. Swipe to the right-most pannel of the app
  2. Scroll to the top to see "curators"
  3. Make a note of their handle "@name"
  4. Message them from within a channel


Access roles are the gates to change within ClairSpaces. Yet, it creates a new balance where anyone can be a teacher and anyone can be a learner.
