What company’s members means in the scope of Open Exchange? Different Open Exchange members can belong to one company. Also, we have a Company’s listing and there are two entities of Company which could be managed by its members: Services and Applications. The company’s members’ management gives the option to invite other members of the Company to publish applications on behalf of the company, change the description, and publish the Company’s services.
There are two roles which members can take in the Company:
- Member of a Company - can publish applications on behalf of the Company.
- Admin of a Company - can publish applications on behalf of the Company, can edit the Company’s description, can add and edit services and manage members of a Company (company can have only one admin).
The first admin member joins when he/she lists the Company on Open Exchange.
Then the Admin member can set up an “invite token” - a random token which he/she can share with colleagues to invite them to join the Company.
A new “invite token” could be generated by admin on a Company’s page:
There is a button to copy token in a clipboard and a New Token button to generate a new one.
This Token could be shared with members of the Company by any communication channel (email, messenger, etc): this proves that members of the company know each other and there is an intention to join the Company.
Having the token Open Exchange member can join the company on his OEX profile page:
And then enter a Token and click Join:
Note! You cannot join a company if are already a member of another one.
Admin member can manage other members of a company. The list of members is shown on a Members tab of the company profile.
You see the members’ names and roles. You can search for a member, you can delete a member from the company’s listing.
