Hello,

Does anyone know what users see if you create an External Network and check the "Allow [company] members to join without an invite"

Do they immediately see the External Network in their settings drop down?
Or how will they be able to get to the External Network?

Can this setting be selected after the network is created - and if so where?

 

Thank you!

There is no notification and the network does not appear in menus until someone visits the network so you would need to draw attention to it by posting links.
