You'll be prompted to enter the user's email address, and (optionally) add their name.

The user will have the option to add their name, or edit the name entered here, at registration.

What happens next?

The user will receive an initial invite email with a link to the Glean Sign Up page. 

If the user doesn't sign up within 7 days they will begin to receive automated reminder emails.

When they successfully sign up they will receive a welcome email.

If they fail to sign up within 30 days their invite expires and they will have a status 'Invite Expired' in Glean admin.

Invite Expiry:

Invites are valid for 30 days from the day they are sent. This period of validity is reset if you resend an invitation to a user who's invite is still valid or re-invite a user who's invite has expired.

If a user clicks on an invite link which is expired, they will be informed that the invite has expired and be prompted to contact the email specified as your organisations contact.
