You can invite new people to your domain as Network Users or Guest Users. First some comments about Network and Guest Users. Then instructions on how to invite Network and Guest Users to your domain:

What is a network user?

  • Network Users count towards the number of paid users in your domain
  • Network Users have access to the public communications, projects, groups, wikis, etc.
  • Network Users are restricted by the “Private” and “Secret” permissions you set in your domain.
  • Network users can be invited to the domain from a sidebar widget, the “People” directory, and from the admin portal.
  • If a user has the same email as the domain, they will always be a network user, never a guest user (i.e. domain “ibm.mangospring.com” and email “user@ibm.com”)

What is a guest user?

  • Guest Users do not count towards the number of paid users in your domain.
  • Guest Users cannot see your entire domain.
  • Guest Users have an email address that is different than the Domain Owner’s Email domain.
  • Guest Users are restricted to the groups and projects they have explicitly been invited to.
  • Guest Users cannot search for anything outside of the groups and projects they are invited to meaning that Guest Users cannot see other members or their content unless they are part of the project or and post content to the project or group.
