Brightspot CMS User Guide

Team roles and members

Pitches often require roles and personnel that are not part of your routine publishing effort. For example, you operate a general news site, and you want to publish a specialized series about electron microscopes, so you need to hire freelancers for some of the content generation. You can group the freelancers, and your staff reporters, into roles limited to Assignment Desk pitches.
