Accepting an Invite to an Instance

Before you can work on an instance that you're invited to, you'll need to accept your invite.

Overview

Only users of an instance can access it and edit its content. To become a user of an instance a user needs to be its owner, part of team that's assigned to it, or invited to access it. After a user is invited to access an instance they'll need to accept their invite before they can access the instance. Likewise, if a user is not the owner or a team member of an instance they'll need be invited and accept that invite to an instance before they can access it.

There are 2 ways to login to accept your invite: via email and by navigating to https://accounts.zesty.io/login.

Even though a user does not have a Zesty.io account they can still be invited to access an instance. However, they will need to create an account before they can accept their invite.

Before you begin

If you've never created an account in Zesty.io then create an account.

1. Navigate to https://accounts.zesty.io/signup to sign up for an account.

2. After you've created an account, check your email and verify your account.

If you don't see a verification email in your inbox check your spam folder.

3. Click the orange "Verify your email address" button to verify your email address.

Troubleshooting

Email Mismatch

If you've been invited to access an instance but you do not see an invitation once you login, ensure that the invite email and Zesty.io account email are an exact match. For example, you'll have issues accessing your invitation if your account has been created with a personal email address, and the invitation was sent to a professional email address.
