Project Leaders should never add industry professionals to their Team or their project.

Team Member vs. Team Administrator

When you add people to your team, you can choose to add them as either a Member or an Administrator.

Many Professors find it helpful to assign a few individuals, such as administrative staff or select students, as Team Administrators. Team Administrators are able to help the PI manage the team by adding and removing people from the team. Team Admins can also run Team reports.
