MAJOR CONTENT CORRECTION:
In this recording, and at the live meetup I incorrectly said that site users could login to WordPress.com to access the management areas and create content within a team, if the site is connected via Jetpack. This is inaccurate.
Your clients, or authors would need to have independent WordPress.com accounts through which they can login BUT i have yet to find any way to invite them to access Calypso within a team for self-hosted WordPress sites (on WordPress.com sites you can still invite any tuber of users to be authors etc.) For self-hosted, Although you can have multiple people login through one user account- that is insecure, and bad form.
So I am left to re-think my current view of Calypso – If it cannot currently be used within a team.. then its only helpful to the sole admin that initiated the JetPack connection. FOR NOW : )
Will update with findings on this matter asap.
