I'd like to add more people to my account so they can either view or administer projects and builds. I see that I have three options in the "Team" menu: Users, Collaborators, and Roles. Roles seems easy enough. But what is the difference between users and collaborators? How can I used them?

    Collaborator is an existing user that belongs to a different account. For example, you can add me as a collaborator, so I can access your account when there are any problems.

    User belongs to your account. He/she does not have their own account in AppVeyor.

    So, what do you think is better? For people to register for their own accounts first and then I add them as collaborators? Or is it better to create them myself?

    I think creating users is fine. If, at some point of time, they decide to have their own AV accounts they can signup with their personal emails or, alternatively, you can delete them from your account, they signup and you re-add them as collaborator.
