Enable domain-restricted sign up

Allow other people to easily join your workspace when they create an account.

In this article

Domain-restricted sign up makes it easy for your colleagues to join and view your workspace when they sign up to Dovetail, without needing an invite.

For example, let’s say you work for acme.com, and your email address is jane@acme.com. With domain-restricted sign up enabled, anyone who signs up for Dovetail and confirms their acme.com email address will be given the option to join and view your workspace.

Enable or disable the feature

To enable or disable domain-restricted sign up:

  1. Click the workspace name.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. Check / uncheck Enable domain-restricted sign up.

Managing access

People joining a workspace using domain-restricted sign up are given the Viewer role. To grant more access, an existing admin or user in the workspace needs to manually change the person’s role to User or Admin.

Read the help article Manage users in your workspace to learn more about roles.

Set allowed email domains

You can set the allowed email domains and have multiple domains. However you cannot add free email provider domains like gmail.com or outlook.com.

To set the allowed email domains:

  1. Click the workspace name.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. Under Allowed email domains, add or remove domains.
