Inviting Users to Join an Organization

ActiveState organization administrators can email invitations (or “invites”) to join their organizations.

Those invited will receive an email from “notifications@activestate.com” with a single-use URL they can visit to accept the invitation and become a member of the organization. If the invited user does not have an ActiveState account, they will be prompted to create one.

Sending invites

In order to send an invitation to an organization:

  • You must be an administrator of the organization.
  • The organization must be on a paid subscription to the Platform.

To send an invitation to your organization:

  1. Sign in to your Platform account and go to your Organizations tab.
  2. Click the name of the organization you want to invite users to from the list shown.
  3. Click the Members tab.
  4. In the “Invite a New Member” section enter the email address of the user you want to invite.
  5. Select the role of the invited user
    • Admin- All permissions including inviting and removing members
    • Editor - Can create and modify projects

Canceling and re-sending invites

  1. Sign in to your Platform account and go to your Organizations tab.
  2. Click the name of the organization from the list shown.
  3. Click the Members tab.
  4. Locate the invitation you wish to cancel or re-send in the “Pending Invites” section.
  5. Click the Resend button to resend the invitation to the email address already used, or click the **Cancel **button to cancel the invitation. If an invite is canceled, the invited user will still be able to see the invitation email and click the link, but they will not be able to accept the invitation. alt_text

Automatic invites

Users can be automatically invited to an organization if the domain of their email address (the part following the @ symbol) matches the configured domain. With this feature enabled, when a new user registers on the platform with the matching domain they will receive an invite to the organization (after verifying their email).

To enable automatic invites (only available to organization administrators):

  1. Sign in to your Platform account and click the Organizations tab.
  2. Click the organization you wish to enable this feature from the list shown.
  3. Click Members.
  4. Scroll down to the “Automatic invites” section.
  5. Select the email domain to enable automatic invites
    • For an email domain to be considered eligible, the organization admin enabling the feature needs to have a verified email address in the domain associated with their account.
  6. Select the role that the new users will have when added to the organization (Admin, Editor, or Read Only).
  7. Finally, enable “Automatic invites” by toggling the switch next to the section header. alt_text

To disable automatic invites, turn the toggle off. This will prevent invites from being sent in the future, but will not invalidate invites that have already been sent.
