    • Enter your colleague's email address and select "OK".
    • Your colleague will receive an email prompting them to create an Ocean user account.
    • Once your colleague has created an Ocean account, they will be automatically added to your site.
    • If you wish for this colleague have administrative privileges for your Ocean site, simply click the checkbox beside their name, under the "Set Site Admin" column.

    • Scroll to the bottom of the page to find the box beside "Add user to this site:".
