A new client contact asked for read-only access. I sent him the invitation and that's where progress ended. Does any one have a step by step explanation I can send to him to help him properly accept the invitation so I can grant him access?

Ashley - Maybe the invitation email is being blocked by their spam filter or its in the junk folder.
However, here are the steps.
1) Log into MCC
2) Go to My Account -> Account Access
3) Click "+Invite Others"
4) Enter the users email address and Name (Optional)
5) From the Access Level dropdown-> Select Read Only Access
6) Click Send Invitation button.

Once the user accepts the invitation, you should go back to My Account -> Account Access and you will see "Grant Access" next to the user you have sent invitation to. Click on Grant Access and its done.

Hi Mehdi,

I appreciate the response but I'm not having trouble sending the invitation. My client contact is having trouble figuring out how to accept the invitation. He's received the e-mail in his inbox.

Hi Ashley,
The email is self explanatory, he just need to click the link which he received.
Below is the format of email he will receive and he needs to click the link under "To Accept you invitation Visit"
