People and teams directory

You will find all your colleagues in the people & teams directory. The people directory is marked as "People" in the sidebar navigation.

The People tab lists all people. The Teams tab lists all teams and lets you create new ones.

Use the search function to find your desired contact faster - it will even forgive small typos! Both "Specialist Nancy" and "Speicalits Nacny" will lead you to the correct person. 

Grant permissions

Administrators can grant users extended permissions here. To do that, click on the Settings button next to the user you want to give extended permissions to and check the permission that should be granted.

Invite users

The people directory is also the right place to invite new users into your system. To invite users to your intranet, click on the Invite button and enter the email address you want to send the invite to.

You can also view all pending invites to your system here. To do that, click on the Pending Invites button. 

(lightbulb) Invited users will receive a personalized email with a link to your workplace.

Domain based access

You can also add people to your workspace based on their email domain. For more information, please take a look at User access to Linchpin Hey

Invite Apple-ID users

Apple-ID users might not be able to accept your invitation. This behaviour occurs when the user decides to hide their email address. In such cases, please use the user's private/hidden email address

(warning) This workaround might not work if the user disabled email forwarding.

Delete users

You can also delete users from your system. To do that, click on the Settings button next to the user you want to kick. Then, click on the Delete from intranet button.
