How to Invite Users to Your Account (Interactive)

Before we begin, you may need to review this article for more details on the differences between interactive and silent app users.

Invite using the email

To invite a person to your Time Doctor account, you’ll need to follow the instructions below:

  1. Go to the Invite page on your Time Doctor account.

  2. Add the email(s) for the user(s) you wish to invite.

  3. Select their access level.

  4. Select the groups and projects they’ll be part of.

  5. Configure their screencast and edit time settings.

  6. Click Show More to view additional settings.

  7. Click Send invites when finished.

When the users are invited, they’ll receive an email with a link to follow and instructions on how to set up their Time Doctor accounts. You can review our User Onboarding Manual for more details about this.

Invite by sending a link

You can also invite users by sending them a link. Navigate to the Invite page and click the Invite by Sending a Link tab.



Copy the link and send it to your users via a group email.




  1. Anyone signing up via this link will automatically join the trial account as a regular user with the ability to track their own time.
  2. Users clicking the link will access a signup screen unique to your account, and be required to create their account.
  3. Users will be guided to the download and installation of the Time Doctor Desktop App to start tracking time.
  4. Users must start tracking time by opening the Desktop App and starting tracking time.
  5. Once the Desktop App is installed, users can also add the Chrome or Firefox extensions to track time in JIRA, Asana, and multiple other Apps here.

Add users by CSV Import

An alternative is to add users by CSV Import. If you don't want to send invites to employees to use Time Doctor, there's an option to import a list of users, install desktop apps on their computers, and share login details with them. Learn about it here.

Who Can Send Invites?

By default, only owners and admins can send invites. However, you can allow managers to invite new users (invite people to their teams only). To do this, you’ll need to go to Settings / Company Settings and enable Allow Managers to invite new users under Permissions.
