Advanced Team Permissions

  • Team-only and Private Rooms: Designate rooms as accessible to all team members (team-only) or restrict access to specific team members (private).
  • Private Filespaces: Create filespaces accessible only to specific team members. By default, filespaces are accessible to all teammates apart from those with the Very Limited Client role.
  • Per-Room Host Designation: Assign specific teammates as hosts for individual rooms. Only Owners and Admins are eligible to be a room host.

Being Part of Multiple Teams

  • Users can be the owner of one team and a teammate in multiple teams.
  • Louper plans are associated with teams, not individual users (even if the team is a team of one user).
  • A user can belong to teams with different plan tiers (Free, Plus, Pro).


Angela, a producer, uses Louper for three productions: Banana, Orange, and Grapefruit. Each production is managed by a separate vendor with a dedicated Louper team. The vendors add Angela as a collaborator to their respective teams.

  • Upon signing in, Angela sees all three teams listed in her dashboard.
  • Clicking a team shows the corresponding rooms and filespaces.
