V. Status

Note: this is viewed by Organization Admins only.

In the far right of the People list, Organization Admins can see the user's status. This displays the user's invitation status (not sent, delivered, pending) and the last date and time they were logged in to Boardable.

  • Invitation not sent: user was created, but Send Later was pressed when asked to notify

    • Click the Send button next to the invitations not yet sent at the top of the People page

  • Invitation delivered: invitation delivered to user's inbox

  • Invitation pending: invited user has not interacted with the invitation

  • Date instead of invitation status: when no invitation status is listed, and this field contains a date instead, the user has accepted their invitation and the date matches their most recent login

Troubleshooting: if a user's status stays at Invitation Pending for a long time, it may be that the email address is not correct or was not received properly. Take these steps to ensure the user is properly notified:

  1. Double check that the email address is correct in Boardable

    1. If it is not, click edit next to the user's name to update

    2. After saving the update, put a check mark next to the person's name on the People directory and click Send Invitations from the right menu panel

  2. Check with the user to ensure the email address is correct

    1. If address is not correct, update as explained above

    2. If address is correct, ask the user to check their spam / junk folder
