Invite people to join your ArcGIS Hub Community

If you'd like to collaborate with someone who doesn't have a community account yet, you can invite them to become a community member.

  2. Click Organization in the top navigation bar, then click Members located on the menu to the left.
  3. Choose how you would like to invite a member. ArcGIS Online provide you with three options. It is recommended that you choose from the following two options:
    • Add members without sending invitations- requires you to set a username and password for the person you're adding. You will have to contact the member(s) you add and direct them to sign up for an account with the username or password you've created for them. In the case that they already have a community account, you can let them know that the next time they log in, they'll be required to set a new password. 
    • Add members and notify them via email- requires you to set a username for the community user. They will receive an email with a provided link to sign in and create a new password.
  4. Choose to add members either One at a time or From a file. Provide member details including email, name, and username. 
  5. Choose a Level. Opt for Level 2 access if you're adding people to help you create and manage content. With Level 1 access, they will only be able to view content and join groups.

  10. Community members must authenticate their new accounts before they will appear in your ArcGIS Hub Community organization. Then, you can add them to your initiative teams.
