If you join the CSP from one of two simultaneous invitations received from your administrator and your customer, you might see a green box with a question asking whether you are an employee of the supplier organization and you need to select either the Yes – Join or No – Create New Account checkbox.
You can see this feature only if your customer(s) enabled it.
When you join the CSP from a customer-created invitation, you can see a registration page that is different from the page shown above. The Create your business account page contains the following welcome message and company logo by default. Your customer can customize the welcome message and add their logo, so the message might be different from the one shown below.
You can update your information later on the My Account Settings page. For more information, see Manage Your Account.
By default, this account is the admin account for your company. Once set up, you can add users and assign them roles, including account administration. For more information, see Administer the CSP.
Forward your invitation
You can invite others any time by entering their email address in the Forward email field in the Forward your invitation section and clicking Submit, or by clicking on the Forward this to someone link if you see the welcome message.
For more information, see Register for the CSP.
