Internal vs. external members

All iMeet® Central accounts allow for a distinction between internal and external members. Internal members are listed as part of the Company Directory, can be added to multiple workspaces at one time, and can view items marked "Internal." Internal Members are generally people within your company.

External Members are generally customers, clients, partners, vendors, etc. External members must be invited to each workspace individually and cannot view items marked "Internal Use Only". External members cannot be added to Member Groups. For more details on the two types of accounts, see the chart below.

Internal members

Access the Internal Members administration area by going to the company admin menu (gear icon in the top right) and selecting Company Setup. Permissions on the company level can be set in this area. Members can be removed and passwords can be reset using the Bulk Actions menu and the check boxes below it.

External members

Manage external members within the workspace(s) of which they are members. While in the workspace, click on the People > Permissions. External Members have a gray icon next to their names. Use the check boxes to grant or remove permissions. Use the check boxes on the far-right in conjunction with the buttons above to remove external members, reset passwords or to make the member Internal. See our Articles on Adding and Removing Members to workspaces, converting an External Member to Internal, and resetting a Member's password.
