Users can be invited to EdApp in a variety of ways. Inviting them via email is a good option if you would like to manually control who receives an invitation. Inviting them via email (bulk upload) is a good option if you would like to do this for a large number of users and have their contact information. In this post, we explain how to invite users via the email option on EdApp.
1. Navigate to ‘Create & Invite Users’
This can be found under the User pane. Once you’re on this page, you’ll see several options for inviting users to the platform. In this post, we’ll focus on the first option.
2. Click ‘Invite new users’
Here you’ll be given the option of inviting users manually or via CSV upload.
3. To invite a short list of users, click Invite Manually
Input your users’ email addresses. If you would like to grant them Administrator privileges, check the box next to their email address. The system will automatically match the user’s email domain to yours unless you uncheck this box. When you are ready, click Send Invitations. The users you have entered will receive email instructions with their user login details.
4. To invite users in bulk, click Bulk Invite
Bulk upload is via a CSV file and is useful for uploading numerous users at once. The CSV file must be laid out in a specific way as indicated on this page in order for the data to be uploaded correctly. Within the CSV file, the columns should be titled as the information you would like to upload. The only required field is email, however admins can also add the following fields if applicable:
- First name
- Last name
- User group
There is also a capability with this feature to automatically send the uploaded users an email with their new login details.
