How to invite someone to answer a question?

Hi!

Is there any possibility to invite a user to answer a question? Like here, in Quora:

Yes, use the invite button on the topic.

You must be TL2 to send invites however.

Agree with Jeff, right now @Agnieszka_Jaskiewicz you have TL1 here on discourse.
When you get the TL2, you will see the “invite button” like:

Thanks! What do you mean with TL2? What are the next steps when a user gets a request to answer a question? Does he get an email or what?

Search “trust level #howto”. Find Description of various user states in Discourse

Our users get TL2 by default. I’d like to keep the option “invite to answer” only for admins because I’m afraid users will be spamming each other. How can we enable this option from TL3?
