Inviting External Participants to a Project
External participants are now invited to the project through the Manage External Organizations page of your ProjectWise project, instead of through the settings of your ProjectWise Deliverables Management Portal. The overall process of inviting and accepting the invitation is basically the same, the main difference is that these external participants can now use all of the services available in a ProjectWise project, not just ProjectWise Deliverables Management.
