Invite System

Recommended Posts

About This File

This application will allow your community to use an invitation system for new registrations. You can make it mandatory (or not, depending on your configuration). In this case, an invitantion code will be required in order to register a new account in your community.

Public side features:

  • Users can send invitation in 2 places: + Create menu and Invitations on Account Settings.
  • New icon on board top (beside Notifications and Messenger) to display the converted invitees and how many invites the user has. This icon also shows the remaining invitations for the member (just like how many users are online on Chat).
  • 2 widgets: Top Inviters (per week, month, year and general) and Latest Converted Invitees, which are invitations converted to membership.
  • Shows "Invited by" on user profile and on profile card (hover on user link).

Settings:

  • Enable Invite System
  • Require an Invitation to Register an Account
  • Restore deleted or expired invitation
  • Display the popup Invitations link on board top?
  • Display total of remaining invitations
  • Invitation Expires after X days
  • Earn one Invitation at every X new content posted

ACP Features:

  • Invitations Management: a place where you can see the status of each invitation. The status are: PENDING, CONVERTED and EXPIRED. You can invite people, delete or resend invitations. You can also create batch invitations, to be used on a campaign or to be posted elsewhere. It won't send any emails.
  • Bonus form: you can give invitations to a specific member or to a whole member group

Coming soon:

  • Integration to MailChimp

Note:

  • Due to the rework on this app (every new resource has to be done from the scratch to run on  IPS4 and it was a hook on 3.4), a new purchase is required. Thank you for your understanding.

Adriano, well done! I am happy to use this plugin for my website. However, I do have a few suggestions for improvement: 

  1. It would be nice to have an option to set a x allowed invititations per usergroup.
  2. Could you add a front-end feature where users can check the status of each invite? Something like a table where they can see: the invited email address; status and cancel feature. Would this be something to add in future releases?

You mean a limit for the invitations ? I can certainly add this but you can control it by rising the number of items content count a user must have to earn invitations. Default is 10.

Yes, I can do it.

I'll leave new features to be implemented when IPS 4.1 is released. It won't take long. :)

Thanks, but I mean: can it be set for each usergroup? The default '10' is for all usergroup, except the ones with the 'unlimited invitations' setting enabled, right?

Yeah, you're right. So when it reachs the number, it stops to give invitations when the user posts X items ?

Let me see if I got this right: you want me to add a new option per group to store the max invitations a member from that group can have. Right ?

Say you use 20 for Members. Then a member posts too much. That will make him earn 1 invitation at every 10 posts (default setting). So what happens when this member reachs the limit (20 invitations) ? Should I stop giving invitations at X items ?

My bad Adriano, I didn't understand the workflow of this plugin. I though each usergroup was set to send out 10 invites per time unit (for example, per month). Now I get it: it's based on their posting activity. This feature I requested will not be needed in this workflow :)

Btw; have you contacted -RAW- to make a bridge between the invitation system and iCredits?

Yes, the user earn an invitation at X items posted.

No, not yet. He didn't updated the iCredits yet. But I'll do it... maybe we can work together.
