If this doesn't look like your studio, you may want to try this link.

Creating a Client and inviting them to log in

First things first, we’re going to go click on the client icon in your studio menu.

That's going to take us to our Client page where you will click Add Client.

Type in the client's name, email address, and phone number (optional) and then click the Save button.

You will then select the new client’s profile. You can see that, currently, the client is not added to any projects.

You can fill out the client's information by selecting the Pencil Icon and add any public notes in the notes section. If you'd like to also keep track of birthdays, anniversaries, or something similar--really anything you want to--you can click the Pencil Icon, then Add Custom Field in the left-hand side of the pop-up window.

Click it, put in the name of the field, designate what type of field it is. So, for example, if this is how you want to keep track of websites, you can do that. If you want this to be applied to all users, click the square beside Apply to all clients. Once you have it the way you'd like, click Save.

Pro tip: If you have a couple, or multiple people working on the project together (as clients), we suggest creating separate profiles for each person.

Adding a Client to a Project

Open the project and go to the Overview tab. On the right-hand side, you should see the Project Access panel.

The project access panel shows any clients that have been added to the project as well as any users on the project. To add a client, click the three dots at the right-hand side of the project, and select edit.

Click where it says "User Access," then click "Select client to add to project" and select your client(s) from the drop-down menu that appears. Then click on the Save button to add the client(s).

Inviting Your Client

Just because you have added your clients to the project does not mean that they know yet that they have been invited! You still need to invite them to your studio.

You can do that by going back to the Clients page and clicking on the client's name to open their profile. (You can see that the project and its spaces are now showing under Current Projects.) This time, we're going to click the Invite This Client button.

You have two different options here--one is to send an invite email and one is to generate a new temporary password.

If you click Generate and email password you can choose to include a personalized message or send the client the automated email.

With both emails, personalized or automated, it will include the logo you uploaded into your studio settings as well as all of the information the client needs to login: the link to your studio, their temporary password, the email to login, and instructions on how to change their password to something more memorable.

To send a personalized Invite email, type your Message in the text box, then click "Generate and email password."

Once you click "Generate and email password" you'll receive a confirmation that the email has been sent as well as see the client's temporary password (in case you want to help them first login). Click "Done" to exit.

So, what does the client receive? The email will go into your client's inbox under Mydoma with the subject line "Invite from **insert your business name here.**"

If you sent the automated email, the body will say: "Login to view and collaborate on your design projects with Marigold. You can access your projects with Marigold from within the studio at any point."

Whereas a personalized message, will override the automated email body text.

If you click Generate a new temporary password, the system will do exactly that--generate a new temporary password. This is great if you want to send a very personalized email with their login information, want to sit down with the client and help them login for their very first time, or if your client has forgotten their password.

Inviting Your Client

Just because you have added your clients to the project does not mean that they know yet that they have been invited! You still need to invite them to your studio.

You can do that by going back to the Clients page and clicking on the client's name to open their profile. (You can see that the project and its spaces are now showing under Current Projects.) This time, we're going to click the Invite This Client button.

If you click Send invite email it will send the client an automated email. Your logo--that you uploaded into your studio settings--will be on it and it will include all of the information the client needs to log in: the link to your studio as well as their temporary password and the email they need to use to login.

If you click Generate a new temporary password, the system will do exactly that--generate a new temporary password. This is great if you want to send a very personalized email with their login information or if you want to sit down with the client and help them login for their very first time.

After you have invited your client, there will be a date/time stamp on their profile to refer to if needed.

Screenshot of Client profile page. Invitation sent information is on right, above Current Projects box. Current projects box now lists client's project and spaces.
