Inviting a Shifter Team Member is Getting a Lot Easier.

Jason McClintock | December 03, 2019

Shifter Teams is a collaboration feature that allows multiple users to access sites created on Shifter. This feature is helpful when you need to allow multiple users to access a Shifter site. Here are some pretty common use cases:

  • Companies who have a team updating content on their sites.
  • Giving access to outside developers who need to work on your site.
  • Agencies who need to hand off sites to clients.
  • Event sites that require multiple users to keep content up to date.

A simpler way to join a Team

Previously, users who were invited to join a Shifter Team had to validate their Team membership through a URL from an activation email. Now, it’s possible to join a team just by logging into Shifter and clicking a single button from the ‘Teams’ page.

Let’s take a closer look

From the perspective of a Team Owner

First, let’s create a new team.

Next, invite new team members. You can find this option under the Member tab.

The status of the invited team member indicates that they are currently being invited to join a team.

From the perspective of an invited team member. 

Invited users will receive an email notifying them that they have been invited to join a Shifter team. 

After logging in to Shifter, an invited user can navigate to the Teams menu where they will see the name of the team to which they have been invited. All they need to do is click the “Approve” button.

And that’s it! The invited user is now a team member. The new team member can now access the teams WordPress installation and collaborate with their team on site development.

From the team owner’s perspective, you’ll note that the user’s status has now changed to “Approved”.

That’s it! If you have any questions or feedback we’d love to hear from you. Get in touch with support at any time and keep an eye out for more Shifter updates soon!

Thanks for using Shifter!
