Can’t invite a manager to the YouTube channel

If you can’t add someone as a manager to the YouTube channel, here are the most common issues.

Secondly, there is a limit on how many managers you can invite to a YouTube channel.

Why does it make sense to add someone as a YouTube channel Manager?

When your YouTube channel is growing, it makes sense to build a team that helps you with any process of video creation process.

So when you hire your first video editor, producer, director, video uploader any kind of team member then it also makes sense to invite them to the YouTube channel so you don’t have to do everything with the channel.

However, keep in mind that there are other YouTube channel roles that might suit a person better with the right permission level so don’t add everyone as a manager to the YouTube channel.
