Inviting Collaborators

Summary: fill in the name and email in People tab and click Invite


GanttProject Cloud is a collaboration service, and we hope you will want to invite collaborators. You need to keep in mind the main rule:

You invite a collaborator to register and become a member of a particular team.

This implies the following:

  • Every team member has access to all projects under that team.
  • User may be a member of many teams. You need to invite to each team individually.
  • Invited collaborator is a regular GanttProject Cloud user. He or she may create their own teams and invite other people.

Creating invitation

If you want to invite someone into your team, you need to:

  1. Select the team in the list.
  2. Open People tab and click Invite New Member button.
  3. Fill in the collaborator’s name and email and click Send Invitation

The invited people are displayed in the list of team members with Invited badge until they accept or decline the invitation.

Accepting the Invitation

We send the invitation by email, and there is a number of ways how your collaborator may accept the invitation.

  1. The invited person may just click the link which leads to GanttProject Cloud web site. If he or she is signed in, they will be asked to sign in or register.

    If they are already registered and signed in, they will just have to accept the invitation:

    IMPORTANT: Any GanttProject Cloud user, who gets the invitation link, may join your team, no matter if their email matches the invitation or not. Be careful with sharing!

  2. If your collaborator is already registered and signed in, and their email matches the one used in the invitation, they will see the invitation in the list of Invited teams
