Learn how to invite participants so they can access your Community!
To be covered:
Brella offers two easy, intuitive methods to get new members to join your community; Personalized invite codes and open invites.
It's important to choose the right one for the type of Community you'd like, so be sure to know the difference!
Personalized Invite Code
Personalized invite codes offer you complete control over who can join your community, ensuring that it stays exclusive.
Log in to your Brella Admin Panel (manager.brella.io)
Navigate to the Admin Panel for your community.
Navigate to the Invites tab.
Click on the green "Create invites" button.
In the modal that opens, type in the email address (or multiple email addresses) and select the number of seats each invite in the group should receive.
- To type multiple email addresses in the same field, just tap the Enter key after each email address.
- If you select the seat count as 2 and type in multiple email addresses, each of those invitees will receive an invite with 2 seats. In other words, each unique invite code that is created can be used twice.
6. Once you are happy with the results, you can click on the green "Create invites" button at the bottom right corner of the modal.
Open invites allow you to create a general invite with an unlimited number of seats, offering more inclusive access to your community. Currently, there is no way to toggle this on or off.
Anyone can join without an invite if the Community Manager shares the join link (from the details tab) with attendees from ongoing or previous events.
👉 Max seat count of Community invites is now up to 1000!
💡Note: The first version of Brella Communities doesn’t support sending automated invite emails from your community Admin Panel. You will have to manually copy and email the invite codes (or unique join links) to prospective members using your favorite email automation tool. Automated invite emails (similar to the feature available in our event platform) will be added in the future.
