We released a new feature, which would be useful for those moderators that want to add a list of members to the mailing list of their group. This flow has been developed, to facilitate quickly adding a list of email IDs while making sure that users explicitly choose to join, before being added to the group’s mailing list.
The invite flow works as follows :
- Start the ‘Mailing list’ invite flow- in the ‘ Invite’ page
- Add list of email IDs, once done, go to invitation preview page.
- The invitation is a short one-liner, with a link /button that the user needs to click in order to join the mailing list. Click on send invite.
The limit on number of email IDs that can be added via this flow is set to 100 per day.
When users added in this method receive the invite to join mailing list, they can either click the ‘join mailing list’ button in the mail , to get added to the mailing list.
Once added, users receive the welcome email from the group.
We believe this feature balances the needs of the moderator to jumpstart or add multiple members to the mailing list of the group while ensuring user consent.
