Callaborator with Admin Role Cannot view or edit project

I have a project that builds from my public GitHub repo, which I maintain with a colleague. He is an owner of the GitHub repo and has his own account on AppVeyor. I have added him to my account as a collaborator, with Administrator role, which has full rights to my project.

However, when he logs in, he does not see the project in his projects tab, and if he tries to browse directly to the settings url of that project, he just see ajax spinner and nothing ever loads.

I see on the forum that other people have set this up ok, but I don't get what I'm missing, any help would be appreciated.

    Make sure he is choosing your account when signing in. When the user is assigned to more than account there is a 2-step sign in process where he sees dropdown with a list of accounts.

    ok, so it's not immediately obvious since Chrome caches the credentials so clicking login goes directly to your projects page for the last user account you used, plus there is nothing in the my account menu that indicates that you have other accounts.

    I GitHub there is a drop down to let you easily switch between your available dashboard contexts, perhaps you could consider something like that?

    Sure, this will be redone like that but it's not an easy fix - API would be affected.
