Send an invitation

When inviting someone to Abstract, you’ll need to decide whether you want to invite them to join your Organization or a specific Project.

With a Business subscription, you can invite Guests to Team Projects. Most often, organizations use Guest Viewer or Guest Contributor seats for clients or other company colleagues to collaborate and get feedback.

Inviting someone to your Organization

When you invite someone to join your Organization, they become a Member. A Member can access all Team Projects within an Organization, excluding Private Projects.

How to invite someone to your Organization

To invite a new Member to join your Abstract Organization:

  1. Select PEOPLE from the left side pane in Abstract.
  2. Click INVITE PEOPLE in the top right corner.
  3. In the Invite to Organization window, choose a Viewer or Contributor role.
  4. Click GET INVITE LINK to generate a link or INVITE VIA EMAIL to send an email.

Admins can also add Contributor seats here, if needed. You’ll be able to see the number of used seats in your Organization here as well.

Inviting someone to a specific Project

When you invite a non-Member to join a specific Project, they become a Guest. A Guest is typically someone from outside your organization, such as a contractor or client who only need to see a portion of your Organization’s work. A Guest can be a Viewer, Contributor, or a Project Administrator.

You can also invite Members to Private Projects.

Note: Guests invitations are only available for Business and Enterprise customers. Upgrade your plan to invite Guests.

How to invite someone to a specific Project

You can invite Guests to specific Projects or Members to Private Projects using the instructions below.

To invite someone to a specific Project:

  1. Select the Project you’d like to share.
  2. Click on Members in the left-hand navigation.
  3. Click on the Invite People button in the upper-right corner to select Guest Viewer or Guest Contributor.
  4. Select Invite Guest.
  5. Click the Get Invite Link to generate a link, or click the Invite via Email to send an email.
  6. Use the form to Add Contributor Seats, if applicable. The number of occupied seats for your account is listed.

Project Administrators can also use the ••• menu icon in the bottom left corner of a Project card. Then, select Manage People from the menu.

Invite Members or Guests to Private Projects

By default, creating a Team Project within your organization makes it automatically available to your teammates. For organizations on the Business plan, create a Private Project to keep a Project access invitation-only.

  1. Click on Members in the left-hand navigation.
  2. Click on the Invite People button in the upper-right corner.
  3. Click the Get Invite Link to generate a link, or click the Invite via Email to send an email.
  4. Use the form to Add Contributor Seats, if needed. The number of used seats for your account is listed.
  • Only Administrators can add Contributors to an organization or Private Project because Contributor seats are paid and impact billing.
