Why Use Invites Settings Feature in BuddyBoss Platform?
If you want to earn more from your community there must be plenty of members. As an Admin, you can invite people to join the community but this job is more suitable for the existing members. They will invite their friends, colleagues or the people with the same mind set up.
So, by enabling this you are allowing your members to send invitation emails to the non-members.
NOTE: Before we start if you are viewing as an admin you will not see any restrictions or changes as Admins have full rights and permissions. Please make sure you View As a non Admin member to view any system changes!
