Workspace Guests

You can invite anyone to a document in your shared Workspace as a Guest, and choose whether they can view, inspect or edit the document. Unlike normal Workspace members, Guests will only be able to see the specific documents you share with them.

Guests with View or Inspect permissions can simply open the document in the web app. Any Guest with Edit permissions will need to be a member of another Workspace or have a valid Mac-only license and Sketch Account in order to open and edit the document in the Mac app.

You can edit the permissions of any Guests in a document by managing the document’s Share Settings in the web app.

Accessing documents as a Guest

If someone shares a document with you and you are not a member of that Workspace, you’ll first need to accept their invitation via email, or by opening the link they share with you.

Once you’ve accepted the invitation, open the web app and sign in with your Sketch Account. Open the drop-down menu in the top-left of the screen — here you’ll see any Workspaces that you’re a member of, along with any Workspaces you’ve been invited to as a Guest. Select the Workspace that holds the document you want to view.

From here, you can view and inspect the document in the web app. If the person who invited you also gave you Edit permissions, you can also open the document in the Mac app.

Note: You’ll need to be a member of another Workspace, or have a valid Mac-only license and Sketch Account, in order to open and edit the document in the Mac app.
