The wait is over.. Invitex v2.8 is ready and released with interesting lot of new features you have been waiting for!
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.
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 LinkedIn and Twitter friends in one go. However, the application will send these messges to respective network in batches so that your app does'nt hit its limits !
If you are popular, you will probably have thousands of contacts in your gmail or facebook. 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.
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 ofcourse. Settings will also allow you to let this happen every time or Randomly.
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.
Now give out rewards to your users for just sending invites and spread your world
Notify your users via email, when a Friend joins the site or when an Invitation is accepted. You have the option to use direct email notifications for this or use JS Notifications if you have JomSocial.
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 !
