It is easy to invite users to your blog or site so that you don’t have to manually create accounts or add them.

Invite codes and invite URLs can be created and given out to those you want to add.

How To Invite Users

1. Go to Users > Invite Users in your dashboard

2. Add some text for your invite code. Keep it short.

  • Select ‘Allow users to create a blog in the process’ if you are using My Class and want your students to create their own blog while signing up for their account.

Using Invite Link

You use Invite link as follows:
