How to change workspace member permissions from 'edit' to 'view only' 

By default all workspace members will have edit permission for all content in a workspace immediately upon accepting their invite for the workspace. It is not currently possible to set a workspace member's global permission level to 'view only'. However this functionality will be coming to Labstep soon.
Please note, if you need to share something with an individual and you absolutely require that it is 'view only' you can share the item using the share link and set the permission level to 'view only' before sending it. To find out click here [insert link].
