Like recruiters, developers can also become team admin and can send test invites to candidates. They have complete edit permissions to the personal library, tests, and CodePair content.
- Interviewer: This is for the users who do not have either the recruiter or the developer's license. These users cannot be admins of a team and do not have edit permissions to the content.
