What are the components of the Team page?

My Apps includes a Team page that allows you to create your application development team by sending out invitations to members. Team members can then be viewed and managed in a summary listing.

Invite Team Members

The Invite More function allows you to send invitations to individuals that you would like to be part of your application development team.

  • Existing team members are displayed in a summary listing.
  • When an invitation is sent a "Team Invite" request email is issued.
  • The invitee receives an invite on their Dashboard page. If the invitee is not a member, they must sign up using the same email address that the invitation is addressed to in order to accept the invitation via their Dashboard.
  • While an invitation is still pending, a Resend Email button is available so you can remind the invitee.
  • At any point after a member has been invited, a Remove button is available so that you can remove the invitee or team member.
  • See How do I create a development team?

View Team Members

When a team member invitation is submitted, a new entry is added to the list with the user name, email address, and an initial invitation status of Pending.

Manage Team Members

Team members can remove a Team Member from the listing.

How do I create a development team?

The My Apps > Team page includes a team member invitation function that allows you to send out invitations to individuals that you would like to be part of your application development team.

  2. Click Invite More. The Invite Team Members page displays.
  3. In the Email text box, enter the email address of one or more individuals you would like to invite to your development team. If you're inviting more than one person, separate email addresses with a comma.
  4. In the Add a Brief Message text box, specify a personal message that will be sent to the people you're inviting.
  5. Click Invite. The invitation email is sent. The platform also posts an invitation notification to the member's Dashboard. The invited member can then log into the platform to accept or decline the Team invitation.
