Search and add a Partner Manager from your Company and click "save".
4. Once you have added the Partner, you will find the Partner in the list and can click Invite.
5. Next you will need to type the email address of the receiver and a message.
6. Check the box if you wish to set up and grant trust for the company.
An invite will now be sent to the e-mail address, and the person receiving the e-mail can register in Cinode.
