Invite new users

There are a number of ways to grant access to your Pixtoome organization.

  • Allow anyone to join without an invitation.

  • Allow people to join based on the domain of their email address.

  • Send email invitations to up to 100 addresses at a time.

  • Share a reusable invitation link.

This article will cover these methods in detail.

You can also manage access by controlling how users authenticate to Pixtoome. For example, you could allow anyone to join without an invitation, but require them to authenticate via LDAP.
