Invited vs. Added Participants

In various areas of a Study you will notice the following distinction being made regarding participants:

  • Invited but not yet joined
  • Added but not yet invited

Participants are deemed Added to a Study when an account has been registered for them (e.g. added via Bulk Import or Site Administration) but the account has yet to receive an invitation to join the Study by email. It is possible to send invitations outside of Recollective, but generally speaking this is typically done from within the platform. Separating Added from Invited allows us to remind you who probably has yet to receive their first communication from the Study.

To browse the list of people that have this status, head over to the Participant Directory and select the Invitations tab. Selecting the count of participants in the page header will also highlight if participants are in either state as shown below.
