About Workbook Users
Individual workbooks can be shared with any number of people you work with. Editors, Commenters, and Viewers are free in Spreadsheet.com, so you don't need to worry about how many people you share with.
If your workspace is on a paid plan, only Owners, Managers, and Collaborators will count towards your licensed user allocation. To learn more about managing licensed and unlicensed users in your workspaces, see our article on Managing Your Workspaces.
You can share individual Workbooks with users, giving different users different levels of access or giving one user different levels of access on different workbooks. A user's permission level will define what options they can access to edit, comment on, or share that workbook.
When given access to an individual workbook instead of a folder, invited users will still see the folder on their home page, but they will only see the specific workbooks that they have access to.
