Invitex was written with a very clear goal in mind - Help site administrators increase their site visitors & members using Viral Invitations. We can easily say that Invitex is the best invitation tool-set available for Joomla today. We not only give the best tools to help users import contacts & send invitations via email & private messaging, but also give some great features like rich content to improve the conversion rates of your invitation as well as automated invitations & reminders. Read on below to read about all the great features Invitex offers you.
This version brings an awesome bootstrap styling & a new layout to give your site viral invitation tool an irresistible new look! The old layout is revamped plus we have added a nice new one as well!
Any visitor/guest user on the site can now invite their friends on the site. All they have to do is enter their name and email and use Invitex.
Remind your users to send out a few invitations after each login. This feature will allow you to redirect users to the Invitations page immediately after login & ask them to send Invitations. They can skip this of-course. Settings will also allow you to let this happen every time or Randomly.
Making requests to different Social Networks in batches so that the users have a seamless experience while inviting their friends.
The limitations that many Social Networks on the number of Messages or notifications we can send using their OAuth APIs. is handled in this batching process. Which means that a user can invite all the Facebook friends in one go. However, the application will send these requests to Facebook in batches so that your app doesn't hit its limits!
Introducing a new content plugin to make the custom landing pages for Invitex using a Joomla Article & any custom content much more rich and awesome.
Invitex allows you to invite users to register on your website. Tight integrations with Native Joomla, JomSocial, Community Builder & XIPT registration systems gives you the flexibility to chose.
What this means is, If you use any of these systems, invitations will be properly tracked.
With its extremely scalable feature called as Invitex Anywhere, we let you extend the awesome features of Invitex to invite for absolutely anything!
Create highly configurable Invite types and use the full power of Invitex to send Invites for virtually anything - JomSocial Groups, Events, Joomla Articles, A Custom component page.. just about anything!
A great & intuitive interface for letting users manually enter email addresses to invite with quick validation to ensure correct entry
We provide native integrations with major email services & social networks to give you the best & correct way to let people import their contacts & invite them to your site. Currently the following services are supported.
Give the flexibility to invite users via a unique URL & also track all invites & sign-ups via this invitation.
Users can import users in bulk by uploading a CSV file with contact data.
Give users great looking name cards which are available in various formats with their own unique URL which are given to users as Widgets to use to promote the site on their blogs etc.
With this, when using Invitex for other extensions or pages other than registration, one might want to invite his existing friends on this site. This feature lets you do that & sends the invite via JomSocial PM.
Option to integrate with Open Inviter to add additional mail services. Open inviter is a third party integration that you may use if you wish. But its not covered under our support scope. We recommend using Native API plugins instead.
Maintain exclusivity by restricting new invitations to be only via invitation.
Let users send Invites as an integrated part of your Registration process.
If you are using CB or JomSocial, the inviter & invitee shall be automatically connected as friends.
Most people have huge contact lists & its critical to be able to search to find the contacts you want to send Invites to.
Using Native APIs we get Names & Photos of contacts which makes the view rich & comfortable for end users. We also show number of selected contacts so that the user knows how many people the invite will go out to.
If you are popular, you will probably have thousands of contacts in your Gmail / Facebook and even in other networks. With so many contacts, it becomes hard to remember which ones you selected to Invite to the site. This feature will show the selected contacts in a separate tab making it much better from a usability perspective.
Users can track the invites they have sent, see invite statistics & resend invites.
Ability to set domain limitations on which email addresses can the invite be sent to. Useful for closed networks, colleges & government applications.
Discover friends during the invitation process. Invitex will show friends that are already on the site during the import process & give the user the option to add them as friends. You can also display our people suggest module on this page to suggest even more friends.
The admin can choose global invitation limits & per user invitation limits. He can also set limits on a per user basis. In addition, per session invitation limits can also be set globally to avoid system abuse. Limits only apply to email invites.
You can configure Invitex to send invitations in batches by setting a batch size & configuring the Invitex cron such that the outgoing emails are within your server limits so that you can use Invitex on shared servers.
The site admins are given comprehensive & useful invitation statistics via a great looking dashboard in the admin area.
Invitex integrates with JomSocial points as well as Alpha user points allowing you to allocate points to both the Inviter & Invitee when they send invites & sign up respectively. Applies to registration invites.
Give your users monetary rewards by using the Invitex integrations with various affiliate systems. Dioscouri’s Amigos system already integrates with Invitex via a plugin. Invitex has an easy to use API so developers can easily integrate any system of their choice
IDevAffiliate, Post Affiliate pro integrations are currently under development.
Invitex supports use of language constants in invitations thus making it possible to set up Invitex to send multilingual invitations depending on the active site/user language
Users typically invite friends once & forget about it. With Invitex, the Admin can manually send invitation reminders to already invitex people or setup Invitex to send ‘X’ follow up invitations automatically. A Separate Invitation Reminder template can be configured as well, to have specially tailored content for these kind of invitations.
Invitex can send automated invitations to people that are likely to have their friends on your site. This is similar to the email Facebook sends “ Do you know Meg, Ryan, Sally ? ” If you let Invitex store imported contacts, then invitex can try to intelligently find people who have friends on your site & send them automated emails asking them to join up as well.
With this special data tag, Invitex will show people who have invited you to date to sign up on this site. This will show all past inviters with their avatar photo. This also compels users to sign up.
Invitex allows you to add rich dynamic & relevant content in your Invitation emails by using the ‘J!MailAlerts Integration’. This allows you to add content like Inviter Photos, Site News etc to your Invite email. Any J!mailAlerts plugin data can be shown in your Invite email. Rich & relevant Invitations are a Key to getting people interested & signing up.
The Email content as well as Subject is customizable as needed. You can also use data tags to increase the personalization of your email. Some of the available tags are as below.

Any CB or JomSocial fields - if you are using one of these integrations, can be included in the email using tags to further personalise your content.
Ability to insert Ads in emails via SocialAds & Monetize your Invitation emails. We highly recommend this as Invitations reach to inboxes of lots of users & have a high reach. You will need to have SocialAds to enable this feature.
Let users unsubscribe from receiving invitations from your site. Choice is power. Give it to the users
Admins have full control on how default Invitations as well Invitation types should be used. This includes deciding which invitation methods to make available, decide integrations - almost everything you can think of is configurable. Most of the configuration can be overriden on a type level.
Regular Invitations, Invitation types, reminders - basically all emails & content that Invitex will send is completely customisable & configurable by using templates.

Activity stream integrations for Community Builder, JomSocial & JomWall to display all your invitation activities like, "Parth just invited 50 friends to Techjoomla using the Invite friends tool & Earned 100 points!" We are doing.
Plus with a Broadcast plugin, the same note can be shouted out to Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn as well if you have broadcast & the user has connected his accounts!
Enabling this feature will load imported contacts in batches & you will need to click load more to load more contacts. This is useful when users have lots of contacts & thus it takes more time to load.
