A Guest is a person whom you can invite to collaborate with your team on a task, sign a contract, or fill in a form without even adding this person to the Fluix system. Guests can be someone from your or any other organization involved in a specific project or team to work on specific tasks. Here are some examples:
First, you’ll need to decide whether the Guest is the one who starts the process or joins in the middle of it. Based on this choice, the way the Guest task can be set up will be different. Let’s look at 2 real-life scenarios as examples of configuring Guest tasks:
Step 1 – Create a task and add a form.
Navigate to the Fluix Admin Portal, create a new Taskstream, and configure the first task for Subcontractors who will fill out a checklist.
For doing this, drag and drop the Guest task from the sidebar on the left to the working area. Once done, the arrow will automatically connect the Start Point with the Guest task.
Fill out the task name and the description of the task that will be displayed to the Guest and add a checklist in the Forms tab.
Step 2 – Copy a link for Guests to access the task.
In the Assignment tab, the link for providing access to the task for non-Fluix users is automatically generated. This link can be manually regenerated if necessary upon clicking the Re-generate Link button.
Step 3 – Decide on the task or action that will follow the Guest task.
When the Guest completes the task, it will be automatically pushed down the process. You may decide on the action or set of those that will be taken to continue or finish the flow. For example, the checklist can be sent to the Supervisor for review and then emailed to the office or uploaded to the cloud storage.
Step 1 – Create the initial flow before adding the Guest task.
Navigate to the Fluix Admin Portal, create a new Taskstream, and configure the first task for the Salesperson who will fill out the contract, or you may use Prefill from the third-party tool to automate the process.
Step 2 – Add a Guest task to the Taskstream.
Drag and drop the Guest task from the sidebar on the left to the working area and connect the task with the previous action or task by an arrow. Fill out the task name and the description of the task that will be displayed to the Guest and specify the due date if needed. The form that was used previously in the flow will be added automatically.
Step 3 – Configure the Assignment for the Guest task and set reminders.
Specify the email address to which the task should be delivered or allow users to fill out the email on their own by configuring the dynamic values. Modify the email subject and the text according to your needs.
Set reminders to notify your guests about the due date for the task or when it’s overdue already.
Step 4 – Decide on the task or action that will follow the Guest task.
When the Guest completes the task, it will be automatically pushed down the process. You may decide on the action or set of those that will be taken to finish the flow. For example, the documents can be sent to the Salesperson for review and after getting approval, they can be emailed back to the office, uploaded to your company’s cloud storage, or sent to any other tool.
The Guests can easily access the task and documents shared with them. Here are the steps:
What can Guests do in Fluix?
Guests can access tasks that were shared with them. In tasks, they can:
Can Guests see each other in the company’s account?
Guests have limited access to the task they were invited to collaborate on, and can only see the task shared with them. Guests may see the Users’ or other Guests’ names only if the previous executors of the task earlier have left some notes in this specific task.
Who can invite Guests to the company’s account?
Depending on the setup, there can be several ways of adding Guests to the account:
If Admin provided the link to the Guest, it can be used multiple times by several Guests at the same time. Since the Guests initiate the flow here, each form’s completion will generate a separate process.
If it was shared by the User upon finishing the task, the Guest may use this one-time link for filling out the form or share it with someone else who will complete the task. Once the task is finished by the Guest, the link will be no longer active.
How can a Guest be converted to a User or vice versa?
Any Guest may become a Fluix User once the User is added to the company Fluix account by Admin. When a new User is created, the invitation email is sent to their email address with the link, upon following which the User will be able to download the app, create a secure password and log into the User account.
