There are different ways to add followers to a discussion, depending on whether the discussion is private or public.
Adding followers to private discussions
If you are the creator of a discussion, and have listed the discussion as private, only you can add the first followers.
Note: Anyone following a discussion (private or public), can also add or remove followers. Also, if you @mention a user, they will also be automatically added to the discussion.
Adding followers to public discussions
You can add followers to a public discussion in the following ways:
Add followers by clicking on the 'Public discussions' button on the right-hand side of the discussion note, and adding the user by entering their name or email after clicking on 'add followers'.
@mention the user, from within the discussion
Invite them by sharing the discussion link with them and allowing them to add themselves to the discussion.
Note: When you have a Complish discussion linked to a calendar event, and the other attendees of the calendar event have Complish accounts, they will have automatic access to the discussion.
Inviting followers from outside your workspace
If you want to invite someone to a discussion who is not currently in your workspace, you first need to add them. If you would like them to have access to your whole workspace, you can add them in the following way. 👇
1) Invite a user, but clicking on the (+) that appears above your profile picture.
2) Invite them by email OR by sharing a link
3) Click 'send email invitation'
IMPORTANT - members of your workspace will have access to all public discussions, therefore, if you plan to invite someone to a discussion who is outside of your company, it's best to invite them only to a specific discussion via a discussion link.
To do this, from within the discussion, click on the '⋮' next to the 'new note' button and select the option to copy the discussion link. If they don't yet have an account, they will be prompted to create a free account before being able to view the discussion.
