[edit] Add a Participant to a Business or a Project

There are two steps that must be completed before someone can participate in a business or project within Project.net: he or she must register with Project.net, creating a user account, and the person must be added to the business or project directory. Fortunately, these steps can happen in any order.

One thing to note: if a person is added to a business of project before registering, when that person does register, Project.net will match that new registration to the existing business or project directory by the user's email address. This is why it is important for a user to register using the same email address as his or her project invitation; once the registration is complete and Project.net has matched the two the user can easily change his or her address.

For more information on registering as a new user in Project.net refer to User Registration

[edit] Adding Someone to a Business or Project Directory

There are three ways to add one or more people to a business: by invitation, import the users from a file or add them directly from a business directory.

[edit] Invite Member

Invite Member
Invite Member

In order to add a new participant to a Business or Project, the member to be added must first be invited to the project. The necessity of an invited participant accepting an invitation is dependent upon the type of invitation you select.

To invite a member into the Business or project, enter the first name, last name and the email address of the participant to add the new invitees to the project.

There are two invitation types:

  1. require invitees to accept invitation -> the invitee receives the invitation as a new item in his/her personal workspace. To participate in the project, the invitee has to accept the invitation by clicking on the accept button.
  2. automatically accept invitation -> no acceptance by the invitee is necessary- the project is automatically listed in the project listing of the invitee.
