Adding a New User to Your Site

Note: You will only be able to add users to your site if you are a site administrator with access to the Admin Settings page in the Ocean portal.

    • Log in to the Ocean Portal. Click the Menu button in the top left corner and click Admin.
    • Click Users in the Admin Settings page.
    • Click the blue "Invite Users to Site" button, located at the top of the page.

Individual User Invites

    • Enter the email address of the colleagues you wish to invite. You can also optionally specify the colleague's full name if desired.

      Note: Unaccepted invite requests will expire after 30 days.

    • If you need to invite more colleagues, simply click the "Add Another Invitation" button to add another row to the table.
    • When you are ready to send, click the blue "Send Invitations" button.
    • Your colleague(s) will receive an email notifying them that they have been invited to your Ocean site and be prompted to create a user account.

    • Once your colleague has created an Ocean account, they will be automatically added to your site.

Are you already an Ocean user?

If you already have an existing Ocean account that is associated with another Ocean site, please note that you do not have to create a new account. When you receive the emailed invite for the new site you are joining, click "Accept Invitation" as this will take you to the sign in page. Ensure that you login with your pre-existing Ocean username and password and do not click "Sign up here!" as it is not necessary.

Bulk Email Invites

    • Select the "Switch to Bulk Email" button, located in the top right corner of the "Invite Users to Site" section header
    • Enter a series of email addresses, each separated by a comma.
    • When you are ready to send, click the blue "Send Invitations" button.

If you wish for colleagues to have administrative privileges on your Ocean site, simply click the checkbox beside their name, under the "Set Site Admin" column, after they have been successfully added to the site.
