In this tutorial you will learn how to add a new user by using the open invite option.
You can add new users one by one by using the Single Invite option, when you want to add many users at once it's way more convenient to use the Open Invite option (or the CSV Import option) .

Step 2. Click on "Add Users" in the top right of the screen.
Step 3. Select ‘Open Invite’.
Step 4. Enter a title for this particular open invite. This makes it easy to find the open invite code again afterwards.
Step 5. Set the number of days that you want the invitation code to be available. The code will not work after the set amount of days.
Step 6. Set the maximum amount of users that can use this code. The code will not work once the maximum amount of users is reached.
Step 7. Select false at 'Ask for first day' if you don't want to a user to choose their first day themselves. Select true if you do want to let them choose their first day themselves.
Step 8. It's optional to select the last day of the users that use this invitation code. The last day is the day that a users' account will be archived. They don’t have access to AppicalNow anymore once they are archived.
Step 9. Select a group where you want to assign the users that use this invitation code to.
Step 10. Select the course(s) that you want to assign to the users. It's possible to select a date too. This date will be used instead of the 'First Day' at time based unlocking of stories (see this tutorial)
Step 11. Click on submit. A new window will pop up with the invitation code for this Open Invite and the link where the new users can enter this code.
You can also copy the 'Direct Link' and paste this in an email. If a user clicks on the link, the code will be entered in the textfield already. The user only has to click on 'Verify' and can create his/her password afterwards.
