Accessing your group invitation link
Group invitation links are a great way to get both existing and prospective community members into a group without having to add them yourself! Simply send an invite link to anyone you want to join the group and they can join both the community (if not a member) and group all in one action.
To find the link, you will just have to navigate to the Admin tools for the group you're working with. You can do this from the "Manage Groups" menu under the "Manage Community" tab of the community, or by clicking the "Manage" button when looking at the member view of a group.
Using group invitation links
Group invitation links can be shared with anyone that you would like to join your community/group. The avenue for this is up to you. You can email them, send them a direct message, or whatever method of communication you prefer! Users who are logged in will see a short description that you provide in the "About" section of your group and the ability to "Join Group".
If they complete the join action, they will be redirected to the group dashboard and joined to the group and community if they were not a member previously.
People who do not currently have a Participate.com account will be re-directed to sign-up. Once sign-up is complete they will re-enter this flow seamlessly, so they can also join!
Deactivating group invitation links
If you're afraid of your invitation link getting into the wrong hands, or if everyone you expected to join the group via the link has joined, you can deactivate the link by just clicking "Deactivate link". This will invalidate it, making it unusable.
You can always generate a brand new, unique link by clicking "Generate invite link"!
