Invite existing users to an account
A few in my team have been trialing MrTickTock to test to see if it help them plan their work. As such we've just created individual accounts with it's own projects. We'd like to keep one of the accounts and then pull in other existing users into it, but at the moment it only lets you get new people to join the account.
Could you change it so that users can be part of more than one account?
It looks like not trivial change to add and even more difficult to keep UI clean.
Could you elaborate what you mean by 'work in multiple different enivronments'?
I would like to understand if and why one would like to keep separate accounts if finally needs to merge them and access from one place.
Understanding the need will help us to find the right solution.

Very sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this issue - thank you so much for responding.
I can imagine that the user can pull tasks onto their Tick-Tock view from any of the accounts they are a member of.
So on the Tasks screen, there could be an extra filter at the top to select Account, and then the customer and projects in that Account.
The Tick Tock screen could also group the tasks per account, so that the user can roll-up or filter to only show the tasks they've selected in each account.
Anyway, would be a great feature for organisation or people who work in multiple different enivronments.
Great work btw, really awesome little tool!
Good catch Chris.
We thought about it earlier but it is was not obvious how it should work from the UX perspective.
If user (email) is part of more than one account how the company selection should happen? Should user be able to select company during log-in? Or maybe login should be not aware of the company and user should have some selection available (context switch) inside the application?
It should be clearly visible to the user which company is in the current context and which company data (tasks, users, time reports, etc.) is visible.
Please note that you can use different emails for different company accounts and that some email service providers (including google) allows to use tags in the local part of the email address. For instance:
* email@example.com can be registered in private MrTickTock account
* firstname.lastname@example.org can be registered in company MrTickTock account
while they still point to the same email email@example.com
Please let us know your thoughts.
