What's the Difference Between Add User and Invitations?
ClickWrite makes it easy to have other people help you build and administer your website. There are two ways to do this: Add User & Invitations. Each method has its benefits:
Perfect for centralized Admins who wants to control and organize the process.
Great solution for more open groups that do not require as much control or organziation. Invites basically allow the user the opportunity to decide their own sign in credentials.
So, what's the difference between the two methods? There are two main ones:
- When the user is added to the collaboration group
- Who determines the ClickWrite username and password.
When the Website Owner or Administrator decides which collaboration group they want the new user in, the new user is added immediately to the group once the Add User process is completed. The Owner or Admin also determines the Username and Password for the new user when creating the account (the user can always change the Password later but they cannot change their username).

Invitations allows the user to complete their own registration form and select their own Username and Password. While the Owner or Admin selects which collaboration group the new user will be invited to, they are not actually added until they accept the invitation.
