In Mnemonica, Team Members access and manage all the Screening Rooms of a Project and Guests can access, upon invitation, specific Screening Rooms with read-only permissions. Collaborative Rooms close this gap to fulfill the need to manage a particular Screening Room without accessing all the others.
