Who gets to add more users to our CA Flowdock organization?

By default, any user. Administrators can choose to change this from the organization's Admin page. For CA Flowdock Enterprise customers, only admins can invite new users by default.

If an organization has been linked to a CA Agile Central subscription, Google Apps domain, email domain or has SSO enabled, new users can join the organization without an invitation by signing up and using the appropriate authentication method.

When using SSO, IT can typically control CA Flowdock access by creating a group that maps to the CA Flowdock service.

No. To access any of your data, the person will need a CA Flowdock user account and be a member of your CA Flowdock organization.
