Permission to add/edit/copy cards

Hi - I am a Virtual Assistant and have recently been added to a clients private Trello board.  Whilst I have access to the board and can view everything in there, I am unable to add, edit, copy or move cards and lists within the board. I have checked the settings and I am under 'normal' settings. Do I need further permission from the admin to make amendments? I have checked the Getting Started guide and it appears that 'normal' should have these rights?

Thanks in advance.

Is it possible that you were just added to the team but not to the boards? Being a team member allows you to see boards and members associated with that team, but does not give editing access to individual boards. You will need to join/be added to the boards as well:

If that does not help, feel free to reach out to with the link to the board, so we can check.

Thanks Torben. We have now figured out the issue, I hadn't joined the board correctly.
