IMPORTANT: Users are different than contacts. If you want a user to also receive correspondance such as maintenance notifications, you have to add them as a contact. For more information, see Company Contacts.

Invite Users

When you select this option, the user sets up their own password and contact information.

To view the status of previously sent invites, click Pending Invites:

Invite Status

  • Header row

    • Column
    • Value
  • Row 1

    • Signup Completed

    • This value corresponds to the unique signup link sent in the invite email.

      Once the user clicks the link and completes the signup form, this value is true.

      If you send multiple invites to one user, only the link they used to sign up shows true. All other invites remain in the false state.

  • Row 2

    • User Created
    • This value corresponds to whether the user exists in the system, regardless of whether they signed up through that specific invite link.

Most of the time, both columns show the same value (false/false, true/true).

However, if you send multiple invites to a single email address, only the one that the person used to sign up shows true under Signup Completed. Once that user account is created, the User Created column shows true for all invites tied to that specific email address.

Therefore, in this situation, the unused invites show:

Signup Completed: false
User Created: true

Add Users

When you select this option, you are asked to provide all contact details and a password. The user does not receive an email notification.

NOTE: Only Admin users can complete this action.
