Inviting Users to a Community

There are two ways to invite people to your community. One way is by sending the invites via email. The other is to send out the invite code and have students join. Remember, schools that require students to login through Blackboard, Canvas, Sakai, or other portal sites will not be able to use the email invite as it sends a link that requires Foliotek login credentials.

Email Invites

First, click on the Moderate Communities icon in the Navigation Bar.

Invite Codes
