Resending invites.. does it renew them?


(Allen - Watchman Monitoring) #1

I just re-invited someone to our forum, though their original invite expired.

I’m left with this:

user@sample.com This invite has expired. Remove Invite re-sent

Was their old invitation renewed? Did it resend their old, expired one? Is everything OK here, but the UI didn’t refresh?

Thanks for any pointers

Perhaps @techapj can answer.

Yes, clicking on Resend Invite will renew the old invitation token.

Another email will be sent with the same invitation token (link) as before, and the old invitation token will be renewed.

On clicking Resend Invite button, the button is replaced with text Invite re-sent, this means that the old invitation token is renewed and another email is sent with (renewed) invitation link.

thanks for this, and that’s a great way to do it, I’m happy.

My confusion surrounded the text which remains “This invite has expired” even after being re-sent.

It would be super-fantasticlly helpful if that were replaced with the [updated] date the invitation would expire.
