Invitex 2.6 is here ! - Facebook Request Invites, Automated Invitations & Much more !!

We are very pleased to announce the release of Invitex 2.6 which comes with the much awaited Facebook "Request" Invites and some really powerful features like Automated Intelligent Invitations, Google Analytics Integration & much more !  Here is a quick snapshot of the added features. Plus Invitex 2.6 is fully compatible with JomSocial 2.8 .

Facebook Request Invitations

In line with our commitment to give you the best & the latest in Invitations, we have updated our Facebook API plugin to now support Facebook Request Invitations which is the latest suggested method by Facebook to send invites.


Automated Intelligent Invites

This is similar to the email Facebook sends “ Do you know Meg, Ryan, Sally ? ”

Automated Invite

Borrowing on some of the logic we use in our People suggest system for "Imported Contact Analysis" , Invitex can now send automated emails to people who are not on your site yet, but are very likely to know a few people on your site. For this, you need to turn on "Store Imported contacts" in Invitex configuration. This is a revolutionary feature that will make your site as intelligent as Facebook :) & drive even more traffic !

In Addition a few more features which you will find pretty interesting are added.

  • Google Analytics Integration
  • Admin control on the order of Invitation methods in the frontend
  • Ask user to "Resend" Invites to previously Invited Email Addresses
  • [INVITER_NAME] and [INVITER_UNAME] tags to show Inviter name or Inviter Username in the Invitation  
  • JomSocial 2.8 Compatible
