There are 3 different ways to invite users to a story:

  1. When creating a story from scratch

  2. Inside an existing story

  3. In bulk to multiple stories at the same time

  1. Invite users when creating a story from scratch:

Step 1. Create a story. When doing this, you'll see the option to add one or multiple users to the story:

Need to invite someone to your workspace? Click on the Manage users link to add a new user to your workspace.

Step 2. Click on the green button Save to save the story and the added user(s) will receive an email with a link to the story they have been invited to:

🔔 Note: When inviting a user to a story, only users with the writer and publisher role will see the email address of the other users assigned to the story. Guest writers will see the email address masked. For example, supp***@**********.**.

2. Invite users to an existing story:


Step 1. Go to the story you want to invite someone to and click on the Collaborate button located at the top right.

Step 2. Choose Ask team member to edit.

Step 3. You will then be presented with a dropdown list of users to invite.

Need to invite someone new to your workspace first? Click on the Manage your team link to add a new user to your workspace.

You can also add a message to say why you are inviting them to this story.

Click on Invite once finished.

🔔 Note: When inviting a user to a story, only users with the writer and publisher role will see the email address of the other users assigned to the story. Guest writers will see the email address masked. For example, supp***@**********.**.

Step 4. Once you have invited the user to the story, he/she will receive an email with your message and a link to the story.

3. Invite users in bulk to multiple stories at the same time:

If you want to invite a user to multiple stories, you can also do this in batch. This is not only faster for you but the user will also only receive one email with a list of all the stories he/she has been invited to.

Step 1. Navigate to the stories overview and select one or multiple stories by clicking on the check box next to them

Step 2. Click on the Actions button on the right hand side and select Add Collaborators

Step 3. Select the user or users you want to invite to the stories.

Need to invite someone new to your workspace first? Click on the Manage your team link to add a new user to your workspace.

You can also add a message to say why you are inviting them to this story.

Step 4. The user(s) will receive an email with a list of all the stories they have been assigned to. They can click on each story separately or click on View all stories to see them all inside their StoryChief account.

In addition to inviting users, you can also use other collaboration features to work more efficient on your content. Have a look below.
