Larger groups on Cacher have always wanted a way to restrict editing team snippets. The team may have clients who don’t need write-access or consist mainly of students who access snippets for assignments.

Today, we’ve introduced a Team Viewer role for that purpose.

Team viewer permissions

Team viewers are able to view snippets and labels but cannot create or edit them, review draft snippets, change team settings or manage members. For a full comparison of team role capabilities, check out the documentation.

Adding and designating viewers

  • Starting a team: During the Add Members step, select Viewer from the role dropdown when inviting a new member.
  • Existing team: After opening the Team Settings, navigate to Team Members, then to the Members tab. Edit an existing member and select Viewer from the role dropdown.

Integrations support

In addition to being prohibited from creating/editing snippets and labels in the Cacher web app and desktop clients, Team Viewers are also prevented from creating snippets via our 3rd-party integrations: Chrome/Firefox, VSCode, Atom, Sublime and the Cacher CLI.


We’re excited to hear how Cacher teams use the new role. Visit our community forums to share your thoughts and feedback.
