Note: When you invite a user who doesn't currently have an account in the database view, Raiser's Edge NXT automatically generates a password for the classic interface. For the user to log into the database view, a system administrator must first reset the password to one the user knows.

All existing user names in the Raiser's Edge are brought over to RE NXT.  Perform the following steps to invite an existing user:
  1. In the Raiser's Edge NXT, Navigate to Control Panel > Security
  2. To invite a user click the menu button by their name on the "Users" or "Need invitation" tab
  3. Select Send invitation
  4. Enter the user's email address, click 'Send Invitation'
Note: Accepting the invitation will link their existing Raiser's Edge username with their email address for Raiser's Edge NXT.  Their existing user name and password will stay the same.
