re-sinding user account invitations

Hello Devs

I recently had create 250+ user account invitations and I had some problems along the way. Some users got codes that were rejected by the system, I didn't find a reason for that but it happened to just a few users. Others just couldn't find the emails for multiple reasons and asked to resend them. So, I have a couple of questions:

- Is there a way to re-send the emails perhaps with a new code? Of course other than deleting the invitations and creating them again. I imagine I'll have to do this at least a couple of times to get every user to activate their accounts and I'd like to avoid having to manually delete 200+ accounts every time I have to renew the invitations.

- Is it possible to create multiple invitations with a single payload?

Best regards,
JM

Hi JM,

Both your questions sound like good ideas to me, but unfortunately neither is supported in the current software.

Cheers,

Jim

Hi JM,

I had a similar requirement a few weeks back. Pierre from Jembi helped with python scripting to convert all the user invites in csv to Json. It was then relatively easy to have multiple invites sent out in one command.

If it helps, I have attached the script below and copied Pierre. He had mentioned working on this as a contribution to the community.

Best regards,

Busoye

Very nice script, thanks. Maybe I should start scripting in Python as well!

I forgot to mention that I found that the form that is presented to create the new account includes a field for Employer information and it’s mandatory, even though the attribute doesn’t exist in the system. See image attached.
