Who can invite viewers?

All admins and editors on your zeroheight team can invite viewers to the styleguide.

All admins and editors on your zeroheight team can remove viewers from the styleguide.

When does the link expire/when do I need a new link?

Private viewers need to request a new link if you try to use/view zeroheight in a new browser, incognito window, or on a new device.

The link will also expire after 30 days. If you did not join the styleguide after 30 days, you will need to request a new link.

How do I request a new link?

You should see an option to request a new link when you open the expired link in a browser.

If you don't have this option your access may have been revoked.

What if I'm not receiving the email with the invite link?

Usually, if this happens the invitation email may have landed in your spam/junk folder so we would suggest checking here first. If you still can't find the email then please contact to help you with this.

Can we use this option in conjunction with SSO?

Yes, this option has been designed to work alongside SSO. Viewers in your organization can continue using their SSO credentials to view the styleguide. Viewers outside your organization can use the link.
