How to add/invite people to your Team

Share a Storm to have users join your team automatically, or invite them from your team's settings in My Account.

There are two ways to add people to your team.

  1. Invite them to a Team Storm.

  2. Invite them to the Team only.

Please Note: 

  1. Members of your team do not automatically gain access to team Storms. All storms require users to be invited.

  2. Anyone invited to your Storms will be added to your team and will gain access to your team features.

  3. If someone has Member invitation privileges, they will also be able to create Storms and invite other team members to their Storms. Anyone new who joins those Storms will be added to your team and to your bill.
