How to Accept an Invitation for Some Users

Affiliated organizations may invite members of your practice to communicate with members of the affiliate. In this situation, you will receive an email invitation from your affiliate. When you respond, you can allow all members of your organization to communicate with the affiliate, or allow only a subset of your members to communicate.

To accept an invitation and allow only some of your members to communicate with an affiliate:

  1. Open the invitation email you received.

  2. Click the link in the invitation email as directed.

    If you are not logged into the Vocera Secure Texting Administration Console, the Login page appears. Log in as described at How to Log Into the VST Administration Console.

    The Invitation page appears.

  3. Select Only some of your users to allow a subset of your users to communicate with the affiliated organization.

    The page displays new fields and prompts you to specify an existing group or create a new one.

  4. Do either of the following:
    • Click the arrow next to Create a new subgroup, choose an existing group from the list, and click Accept.

    • Enter the name of the group and click Accept.

    The Update Group page appears.

  5. Add users who need to communicate with the affiliate to the group. See How to Manage Membership in a Group.
  6. When you are finished adding members to the group, click Save on the Update Group page.
  7. Use the menus and choose Admin > Organizations.

    The organization appears in the Organizations with whom we can communicate list on the Update Organization page.

    Similarly, your organization appears in the Organizations with whom we can communicate list in the inviting organization's Vocera Secure Texting Administration Console.

At this time, members of two organizations can communicate with each other, and they appear as contacts in each other's VST clients.
