Want to make one Team Member read only

I am adding a team member, but want (only) this team member to have only read-only rights and only to several folders.  How to do this?  I am admin.

Thank you

You don't need to add them as members of the team in that case @kstrickoff - you'll just need to share links to the folders you'd like to share with them, thus giving them view only rights and not having to pay for them (as each member of the team occupies a license as you know).

Let me know if I'm missing something here please. Oh and happy Monday!
