Participant search properties can be set to adjust methods for narrowing the search and returning participants with specific characteristics in the search results. For more information, see Searching for Participants in Administrative Clients.
4. Select participants using one of the following methods:
Select participants from the Search Results and click Add to move the participants to the Participant List. Click Remove to remove the participant from the Participant List.
Select participants from the Most Recent Participants field, which displays participants selected in recent searches. Click Add.
Add participants using the Email Invitation field, which is used to add non-Windchill users. Click Add.
The participants are emailed invitations and need to register as a non-Windchill user. For more information, see Registering a non-Windchill User. Participants added using this method have a pending icon displayed in the General Status column in the participant table indicating that they have not yet accepted their email invitation.
Use spaces, commas, or press enter for a new line to delimit between multiple email addresses. A semicolon is not a valid delimiter in this field. Do not include spaces in an email address; otherwise two entries are created on the Participant List when you click Add.
5. Click OK to add the participants included in the Participant List.
