External User Invite Info

Depending on the options selected by your administrator, you may be able to send the invitation from your local email or from a server side email. You also can copy and paste the direct URL to the external user. The external user needs to download and run the access console installer, which is an abbreviated process from the full access console installation.

The external user has access only to the Session tab and has a limited set of privileges. The external user can never be the session owner. When the inviting user leaves the session, the external user is logged out.

You can invite more than one external user to a session.
