What might the platform look like for a Guided Author user?

They will be able to make new Projects from any Templates that have already been created:


In the editing interface, their options will be limited to content edits in Author only. They aren't able to make any structural or configuration changes or create releases, though they can view these if needed using the Configure and Release tabs:


Guided Author users can also add comments to a Project for review using the Review tab:
