You can invite anyone with a company, or personal, email address or mobile number through the Admin Portal. Emails and mobile numbers are unique to each account. Once an account has been invited it can be reinvited at any time but only once per hour.
❗ Only Organization and Team Admins have access to invite users: Organization Admins can invite anyone to any team whereas Team Admins can only invite users to the Teams they are a part of.

Accessing the invite panel
In the Blink desktop or webapp, click on the Admin panel on the left side.
Select "Users" under the Blink Identity section
Click on "invite users" in the top right
Enter either a mobile number or an email address to start the invite process. These must be valid emails or mobile numbers, please double-check they are correct before sending the invite.
If you are inviting a mobile number please ensure the correct country code is added.
A correct format is: [After the country code]
Enter their first and last name. These may be updated at any time.
This is when you're able to add the user to the appropriate teams. It's important to ensure the team assignments are correct as their content depends on this.
If you aren't certain what teams to add, check with your Blink Champions or reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we may direct you to the right people and ensure the content is correct for the user before they even start up.
Next, enter the Job Title, Department, Manager, or Employee ID. These are all incredibly important to ensure are correct as these can dictate their Teams if Dynamic Teams is enabled, and also provide access to tools that have Single Sign On enabled.
Once those details have been completed, any Extra Details can be added by clicking 'More Details'.
Finally, click 'Invite' if you are only inviting one user or click 'Invite and add another' if you are inviting more than one person.
