We are getting ready to do an email campaign, but I don't want current members to get invites if they are already members.
So, does Ning still send an invitation email to an email address even if that email address has already joined the network?
I hope they don't get invited if they are already a member. Thanks anyone or Ning for answering this.
Yes, I know we can download our member list and compare it to the invite email list, but I'm being a bit lazy.
They will not. The only time they will get an invite is if it's for a group their not a member of yet.
Thanks Eric, this is great. Trying hard not to upset folks that are already members!
interesting question. I tried this out with an admin account sending to an email address that was already a member and it sent a friend request instead.
is this expected behaviour?
I don't think so, but it's hard for me to know for sure exactly what is going on without having someone test it extensively. I haven't had other reports of this not working as it should.
I've given it a few goes and this is what it does, even if you're already friends with someone it pops them an invite
