Inviting external contributors

  2. Select Actions > Invite.
  3. Enter the email addresses of people you want to invite. To invite several people from your email address book, you can export a comma-, space-, or semicolon-separated list of addresses from the email application and paste them in.
  4. Edit the message you want potential group members to see with their invitation.
  5. Click Send Invitation.
