Invite new organization members and manage their access in your Flex Console.
Manage organization members
You can now invite new members to your organization in your Flex Console. You can also remove existing members.
It's a good idea to create an individual account for everyone you want to give access to your marketplace data (instead of sharing account credentials with multiple people). Personal accounts help you easily track and manage who is a member of your marketplace organization. For example, when you finish a contract with a freelance developer, you can easily revoke their access.
The latest Sharetribe Flex feature allows you to manage organization members directly in Console. You can see a list of all accounts attached to your organization and add new members or remove existing ones.
To see all members you’ve invited to your organization, open the Organization menu in the top navigation, and click Manage.
You will see a list of organization members with active accounts, as well as pending invites to people who haven't created their accounts yet.
Organization members have full access to your marketplace data. The account you created when you first set up your Flex account is an "owner" account. Only the owner can invite new members or remove existing members. Other members get "operator" rights when you invite them. Operators can do anything else in Console except manage organization members. If you want to give "owner" rights to multiple members or switch the owner role from one account to another, please contact Sharetribe's support.
Once you invite a new member, they get an email instructing them to create a new Flex Console account.
After they create an account, they can join your organization.
If you're invited to a Flex organization and already have a Flex account (for example, if you're a developer who has already done work for another Flex marketplace), you can use the same account to accept the invite and join the new organization. You can then use the Organization menu in the top navigation to switch between your organizations.
