Hi @jsheffield ! Sorry I can’t make it this Friday. I’ll be in touch to set up another time. Thanks for being so flexible!

@dmoore - No worries! Maybe we can spend a little time on it on Sunday night!

@apurva - Hi, there! Hope all is well. Two contributors are trying to get access to my book, and I think your help again. Email addresses are doctamuhlhauser@gmail.com and upike@austincc.edu. I’m trying to add them. They have created Pressbooks accounts, but when I add users in my book, it says they don’t exist. Thank you for your help!!! :grinning:

Sure thing - I might loop in @Monica to help with this! :smiley:

Hi, Jenna.

Not a problem! Since our network is distinct, they’ll both need to get set up with their own accounts via our specific network. I am currently getting the needed info from the first contributor you listed here. Unfortunately, we can’t add @gmail.com domains on our network.

That being said, I’ve gone ahead and added the person with the @austincc.edu email address. They should receive an email inviting them to confirm their new account and a second email indicating that they’ve been added to the book.

Let me know if any additional questions come up - thanks!

Thank you, @Monica! @upike - will you let me know if you got the invite email? I think I can then add you specifically to my book. @doctamuhlhauser - can I use your university email address?

Yes, I was able to get in. Thanks!
