Workplace is built to give everyone in your organization a voice, whether you work in the head office or on the factory floor. We recognize that not every employee is given a company email address, so we created access codes. With access codes, employees can activate their account without the need for a company email address.
There are two stages to add your first email-less user in Workplace:

Manage email-less accounts via Account Management API
You can manage email-less users via the Account Management API in the same way that you would manage users with an email address via the API.
Retrieve access codes
Create access codes to email-less users in one of these ways:
- Retrieve access codes for individual users.
- Retrieve access codes for users that you list on a spreadsheet.

If you've forgotten your password, you will need to go through the following steps to reset your password:
Convert an email-less to an email account
In case an email-less user is assigned to a corporate email address, the email field for that user can be populated. When the email field is updated successfully, the user will no longer be connected through access codes and will be treated as a user with a corporate email address.
Deep-linking to Workplace mobile application
The access codes have a URL scheme that will allow you to deep link an access code URL directly to the Workplace mobile application. This means that you can share this specific URL via a web portal or other delivery mechanism so that the end user can simply click on a link which will guide them to the claim flow within the Workplace mobile application.
