64Up-coming Change to the Yahoo! Groups Invite Feature
- Apr 21, 2008Just a quick announcement to let folks know that due to abuse of the invite feature within Groups (it's being used to send spam), we've been forced to remove the ability for group moderators to customize invitations (or “add” messages) until further notice.
If you need to send a customized invitation, one work around is simply to send users a personal email with a direct link to the “join” page. This link will be:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NAME_OF_YOUR_GROUP/join (where “NAME_OF_YOUR_GROUP” is replaced with the actual name of your group).
Sending this link to someone is exactly the same as sending an invitation, except that if your group requires approval of new members, you will still have to approve them after they complete the join form.
Thanks for your understanding.
