How to add a user to the YouTube channel?

Here is how to add a user to your YouTube channel:

  1. Sign in to YouTube Studio
  2. Click on ‘Settings’ in the left column
  3. Select ‘Permissions’
  4. Click on ‘Invite’
  5. Add the email address of the person
  6. Select the access level you want the user to have.

Now the person will be invited to this YouTube channel in an email sent to the email address you have provided. The invited person gets 30 days to accept your YouTube channel invitation and get the YouTube channel access and permissions based on his or her assigned role.

How to add admins to a YouTube channel?

Here is how to add someone as an admin to a YouTube channel:

  1. Sign in to YouTube Studio
  2. Click on ‘Settings’ in the left column
  3. Select ‘Permissions’
  4. Click on ‘Invite’
  5. Add the email address of the person
  6. Select ‘Manager’

YouTube calls the admins YouTube channel managers.

YouTube channel managers are able to do basically anything that a YouTube channel owner can do. So they can not only view any kind of channel data but upload and even delete YouTube videos.

So make sure you give admin (manager) access to people who you really trust as it is really problematic to recover deleted YouTube videos.

Can’t invite a user to a YouTube channel

If you can’t add a user to a YouTube channel, here are the most important issues you should check.

First, you have to be a YouTube channel owner or YouTube channel manager to be able to invite someone to a YouTube channel.

If you are the owner or the manager of the channel, here are some further limitations you should keep in mind:

  • there is a limit on how many users you can add to the YouTube channel
  • you can’t invite someone who doesn’t have a Google account to the channel.

How to remove users from a YouTube channel?

If you no longer work with someone, you can also remove the admin or the user from the YouTube channel by simply removing access from them.

Here is how to remove an admin or a user from a YouTube channel:

  1. Sign in to YouTube Studio
  2. Click on ‘Settings’ in the left column
  3. Select ‘Permissions’
  4. Search for the user you want to remove from the YouTube channel.
  5. Click ‘Remove access’.

The person you have just removed,  shouldn’t be able to access the YouTube channel from now on.
