    • The guest will then be sent an e-mail to activate (claim) the account.      
  2. The guest will need to click on the link in that e-mail to activate their account, as their sponsor, you will receive e-mail notification when this has been done.  
  3. After that account is activated (claimed), you will need to add the account to your site as you normally would in the process above.
