How to add team members to my project?

Adding team members is done halfway while submitting the project.
If you are registering at the moment you do not have to add your team right now. You can add your team members while submitting your final project. 

If you are creating your project right now.:
Add team members to your project, click on the existing projects under My Projects in your profile, or Create a new Project

Fig.1: Projects

For a new project - Add project Title to the project and then click on the second Tab on the project manager bar. This will give you an option for editing your team as such;

Fig.2: Edit team

By clicking on the edit team Tab, you will be allowed to search for your team members as collaborators*. You can either enter your team members’ usernames or invite collaborators (see below) by Email. Click on “next” to move forward in the submission process.

*Collaborators - Peer/group members who contribute to the project

As soon as the collaborators accept your request, they will be added to your team. 
Note: To understand further about how to send invites, please see below

Invite team members by either 'Search by username' or 'Invite by email'

You can add your team members by either of these options. 'Search by username' function is useful when your team members already have signed up and own an account on Uni, whereas 'Invite by email' option is used when your team members are yet to sign up on Uni and you send them a link to sign up. 
Search by username - Enter your friend's username (A username looks like this: Eg - john85, peggy44) and hit enter. You can also use their emails to search for them and press enter

OR Invite by email - Enter your friend's email, name and role in the team. This invitation sends a signup link of Uni that allows them to create an account.

After adding a role to the invitee, you can successfully send them an invite. You can also choose to cancel the invitation, as shown in the image below.

Once you have invited by any of the above options, their names will be added to the team list as an Unverified team member. All the unverified team members are visible in Gray. They are verified once they accept the Team invitation request after logging in via their Uni accounts, on their Projects tab. (Please note: The invite email and the account your team member is signing up on Uni is the same - otherwise they will not be able to find their invitations).

(Optional) Add organization

Add your school, university, office, workplace, studio - you are participating from here. You can either search from an organization (if you have added them earlier) OR you can add a new organization.

And done!

Once you have sent your invites, your team members now have to accept the project invite via their profile dashboard. The only thing you may have to come back for is to drag and drop remaining team members the same way as shown above under your organization OR editing team details. You do not have to wait for your team members to confirm themselves before publishing the projects. Their details automatically update as verified team members even if the project is submitted to the competition OR the deadline is over.
