Inviting Users who don't have email addresses

How to

If you have users who are to take part in Fleetcoach training but don't have an email address then a simple option to consider is establishing a new Gmail account and then using multiple aliases for your users.

Using email address aliases means your Gmail account will receive email sent to your.username+any.alias@gmail.com.

For example, messages sent to yourcompany+peter@gmail.com and yourcompany+mary@gmail.com will both be received by yourcompany@gmail.com.

To send Fleetcoach invitations to these users simply use the your.username+any.alias@gmail.com format for the email addresses in the Fleetcoach 'Invite users' form.

When the email is received at yourcompany@gmail.com you can distinguish which Fleetcoach invitation email is for which user by looking at the 'To:' field of the message. This will contain the full email alias used in the message (e.g., yourcompany+peter@gmail.com).

Using this method you need only create one new email address that can be used for all your users who don't have an email address of their own.

In Summary

Step one: Set up a gmail account, e.g., yourcompany@gmail.com

Step two: Send Fleetcoach invites as normal, to e.g., yourcompany+peter@gmail.com

Step three: The yourcompany@gmail.com email address will receive all the emails.
