Admins can invite new users at any time, either one at a time or in batches of up to 150 using a CSV. Admins can also invite guests who have requested invites.
Invite new teammates individually
Click the gear icon on the top right of Front and into the Company settings tab. Select Teammates under either the Company section or under the workspace you want to work with. Then click Invite a teammate.
Click Next when finished.
In the Inbox access tab, select the level of access your teammate needs (Workspace Admin or Member), then select the inboxes they need access to. New teammates will automatically have access to any public shared inboxes.
Click Add teammate to invite your new teammate to Front.
Your teammate will then receive an email to complete their setup process. They will need to click the link in the email and walk through the setup prompts.
Note: Ensure that your teammate does not sign up for their own trial on our website, as that will create a brand new company for them, and you will not be able to add the same user to your company. If a user accidentally creates their own trial, please contact us and we will remove their incorrect account.
Invite multiple teammates using a CSV
You can export a template using the Download template option on the Bulk upload page.
Column headings and naming conventions are critical for a successful import. The file may only contain the exact fields listed below, in any order:
[Required] Email address of the teammate you want to invite
Teammate first name
Teammate last name
Enter true or false to indicate whether the teammate should be a company administrator. This input will be ignored if you are cloning from a teammate, as the status of the teammate will be reused.
Teammate permissions to be cloned. This must match either the email address of the teammate or lowercase template ID (e.g. tea_mj12) of the teammate template you want to clone.
teammate group ids
Provide the teammate group IDs for the teammate groups the teammate should be added to.
Click the Teammate Groups CSV option on the page to download a list of your teammate groups and their IDs.
Click the gear icon on the top right of Front and into the Company settings tab. Select Teammates under either the Company section or under the workspace you want to work with.
Click Bulk upload.
Click Choose file or drag and drop your file from your computer into this section. You can invite up to 150 teammates at once using this method.
You will see a summary of all invited teammates. If a field is incorrect, we will display an error message.
Your invited teammates will receive emails to complete their set up. They will need to click the link in the email and walk through the setup prompts.
Note: Be sure that your teammates do not sign up for their own trial on our website, as that will create a brand new company for them, and you will not be able to add the same user to your company. If a user accidentally creates their own trial, please contact us and we will remove their incorrect account.
Customize teammates' sidebars
You can choose which inboxes will be shown in the user's left sidebar. This way, your new teammates will already see the inboxes they'll be working with when they first log in. 🙌
You can customize new teammates' sidebars in the invitation flow, or can customize sidebars in a teammate template. At this time, you cannot customize the sidebar of an existing teammate.
For new teammates
When creating a new teammate, click the Sidebar tab.
For teammate templates
In the Teammates section of your settings, go to Teammate templates and create a new template, or select an existing template. Click on Sidebar in the left menu.
⚠️ Adding shared tags and teammates to your sidebar is a legacy feature. Front accounts created after Jan 26, 2023 use Views.
Choose which shared inboxes will be shown in the teammate's sidebar by clicking Show/hide and selecting items from the dropdown menus.
You can arrange the order of inboxes by clicking and dragging.
