Drive Membership Types

Descript makes it easy to collaborate with your team on your audio and video projects. When adding members to your drive, you have a couple membership roles to choose from.




Editor members of a drive add an additional subscription charge to the Drive Owner's monthly  / annual subscription fee (billing amount determined by the drive plan type on a per seat basis).

Editor members can:

  • create/edit unlimited projects on the shared Drive.
  • initiate transcriptions on any team project.
  • contribute to the monthly automatic transcription rate limit for the shared drive each month (amount of automatic transcription hours is determined by the plan type).
  • Invite other Basic members to the drive.

Editor members cannot:

  • invite other Editor members to the drive (restricted to Drive Owners)



Basic members of a drive do not incur an additional monthly fee to the Drive Owners account.

Basic members can:

  • view and comment on all projects on the Drive Workspace
  • initiate transcription for any project that they have created
  • create Screen recordings (maximum resolution of 720p)
  • add and edit media on projects that they have created
  • export videos (maximum resolution of 720p)
  • Invite other Basic members to the drive.

Basic members cannot:

  • edit or transcribe projects that have been created by other members of the Drive Workspace
  • export videos without a Descript watermark in the lower-right corner of the video
