​     Sharing and Permissions

  1. Invite people to collaborate on the website

*Only one person can work on the website at a time. This is NOT like a Google Doc where multiple people can work at the same time.  
**If you try to edit the page and another collaborator is already in edit mode, it will ask you if you want to kick them off so you can edit.

​     Themes, Colors, and Fonts

  1. You can completely customize every aspect of your website.
  2. Add images, create custom color palettes, and more for each part of your page.
  3. Do NOT be afraid of messing everything up.  There is always a safety net.  You can click the "Clear all customizations" button at the top of the page and it will put your website back to the theme you started with.  
  4. Have fun and be creative!
