The External Members side panel consists of several sections where you can view or edit external member details and information. These sections include:

To access an External Members side panel for a specific member, go to Network > External Members, and then click the Name.

In the Details section, you can view the member Role, Email address, and Company information. To assign or change an external member’s role, select an option from the Assign a Role drop-down.
The Login Status section allows you to control whether or not an external member can log in to the Kantata account or not. If you prefer to only use the external member for tracking purposes in Resourcing areas of Kantata and don’t need them to log in to make changes to any projects, we recommend that you leave the Allow user to log in box unchecked.
In this section, you can add the external member to an access group by selecting an option from the Custom Access Groups drop-down menu. To learn more, see the Access Groups article.
