Adding users to workspaces

hi all, I have a power bi idea in for an administrator setting to turn off the ability for people to add members to workspaces. In a situation where your enterprise has sensitive data, the ability to users to just add individuals to workspace access can get out of control very quickly. Please vote my idea for a setting where anyone less than administrator of workspaces can't add other members. We use AD groups for access and it is hard to control thousands of users to keep them from doing this.

Here is my video on the same

where you can find the other roles as well which we can assign to , we can avoid adding them as Members/Contributor as suggested above

Hi @gregHM ,

 I'm not sure I understand the use case for this. Member is the only role other than Admin that can add users to a workspace. Are you in a situation where you need to make users Members, but don't want them to be able to add users? Can you make those users Contributors or Viewers?
