Who can invite new users? Only the project captain (owner) or Admin of the project. In case you have a Free plan, you can invite 3 users to your projects.

Then type the user’s email (or more at once) and there is an option to invite them to particular projects directly or choose all projects by clicking Select All. Add one email per line and confirm by Invite users.

If you want the user to see only a few To-Do lists, check out the option Invited users will see all To-Do lists and select only those you want the user to have access to.

Otherwise, you can leave the checkbox checked and your colleague or client will see all the To-Do lists in the project.

Confirm your invitation by clicking the Save button.

Non-delivery of the Email invitation

Just remove the user and invite him/her again to the project. A new email invitation will be sent. We recommend you check the SPAM folder in your email.

In the section Users > All users in the upper blue bar find a user without a confirmed invitation (his/her avatar is with an exclamation mark). Click on the email address and then you can copy a link and send it to the user directly.

Password change

You can change only your own password. Go to your profile Settings via the avatar in the top right corner. You can enter the current password and type a new one. In case you forget your password we would recommend resetting it via the forgotten password procedure (but first please log out).
