What are the differences between team owner, admin, member, and viewer in a Contractbook team?
The different roles of a Contractbook team are associated with supplemental rights and document access permissions.

- Build the team.
- Add, deactivate, and delete team members.
- Add and remove team viewers.
- View all team members' documents, such as drafts, contracts, or uploads.
In addition, perform the following actions to all team members' drafts:
