MultiLine invitations contain user credentials and a password to use for MultiLine activation. Users must activate MultiLine on their device every time they install or reinstall the application. If users lose their invitation, you'll need to send them a new password. See Getting Started with MultiLine for the user experience.

  5.  Upload the CSV and click Import and Invite. This will trigger the invitation to all the users in the CSV. Note: This will not assign numbers to each user. They will have the option to choose the number themselves, when they onboard onto the application.

  1. Select the checkbox next to the User Name.  
  2. Click Resend Invite

  • The Resend Invite button stays active both in the Accounts as well as the Administrator pages, irrespective of whether the numbers are available or not. 
  • Moving the pending invitations from one organization to another will not be allowed if the destination organization does not have enough numbers to onboard. 
  • If a pending invite (without an assigned number) is moved from one organization to another, and if the destination organization does not have enough numbers available then the Move button gets disabled. On selecting the destination organization an error message "Unable to move account(s). You do not have enough numbers available in the selected organization" appears on mouse hover.
