A company representative (herein after referred as "Admin") should create a new PEXit account for the company with the Display Name as "Company Name" and define the profile type as "Organization" through "Profile > Edit profile". The Admin then enters all relevant information about the company in the profile. Following this, the Admin requests the concerned employees of the company to log into PEXit and connect to the Company Name through "My Circle". Once the concerned employees are connected, the Admin creates a group for each Project through My Circle > Group > Create and assign the members of each Project Team to that group.

Given below are the Steps to configure PEXit for your "Project-212" with Team members as David, Ram and Joan.

Step 1: Admin should create a new user for SLPL by completing “Create New Account” form available in the Home page. Log into PEXit and define the profile type as "Organization" through "Profile > Edit Profile" and fill in other details, if available.

Step 2: In a similar fashion, group members David, Ram and Joan should create new user accounts on their own by logging in using Facebook, Gmail or LinkedIn or registering with PEXit through “Create New Account”.

Step 3: After creating user accounts, David, Ram and Joan should log into PEXit and connect to Admin (SLPL) using the option “My Circle”. That is, David, Ram and Joan should Log into PEXit and send invite to SLPL.

Step 4: After completing Step 3 above, Admin should accept the connections through “My Circle” or through “Notification” icon of Dashboard.

Step 5: Now Admin should create a new group through "My Circle > Group > Create Group". In the form shown, enter the name of the group as "Project-212", enter the project description in the field “Description”, add members David, Ram and Joan to this group through "assign" option and define the Group type as "Private". Please see the description for each "Group Type" in the Group form for more details. Please note, Admin will become the owner of the Group(s) created under SLPL account. Hence, editing of Group details can only be done by the Admin.

Step 6: Once the above steps are completed, David, Ram and Joan will get a notification to join the Project Team "Project-212".
