There are three participant roles within Transact deals: Member, Admin and Owner.
Participant roles are set by deal admins. They are set in the Participants page within each deal and are set on a deal-by-deal basis.
When new participants are added to a deal, by default they become members.
Participants with member status can see and will have access to all checklist items subject always to any access restrictions that have been applied by deal admins across the checklist. Where access restrictions are applied to individual checklist items, only members that have specifically been granted access to the checklist item will be able to see and access it.
In relation to the checklist items that members have access to, members can:
Granting admin status to a participant has two effects.
Firstly admins have access to all content across the checklist. Any access restrictions that are applied to individual checklist items apply only to members. Admins can always see all items in full.

The owner is the creator of the deal. As the owner, you have admin status and can grant admin rights to other invited participants.
The owner is the only participant who has the right to delete the deal and for this reason, cannot leave it. That is the key difference between the owner and admin roles.
