Add site members

Learn how to add users to sites as members via the web app.

Why add users to sites as members?

Site membership allows you to give your team members a more relevant experience when they use SafetyCulture for inspections, actions, issues, and more. For example, you can configure advanced access rules to automatically give inspection access based on site membership or bulk create inspection schedules for sites and assign to their members.

You can add users to up to 40 sites or levels, such as areas and regions, as direct members. If you add users to levels, they'll become inherited members of all sites below.

Take note

  • You can add site members in six different ways:

    • Add via a user's profile: This is the best way to add a single user to multiple sites or levels. This method requires the "Platform management: Users" permission.

    • Add via the site list: This is the best way to add multiple members to a single site or level.

    • Add via a site or level's profile: This is an alternative way to add multiple members to a single site or level.

    • Add in bulk via the site list: This is the best way to add multiple members to multiple levels.

    • Add in bulk via the site matrix: This is an alternative way to add multiple members to multiple levels.

    • Add via CSV upload: This is an alternative way to add multiple members to multiple levels.

  • Depending on your organization's site selection settings, each site member may only be able to see sites they're a member of when selecting in inspections, actions, issues, schedules, and when filtering.

Want to give users membership to more than 40 sites? Group your sites and add users to the new level as members, and they'll inherit membership to all grouped sites within the level.
