How do I send a link to join my group to friends? eegyecats — Jan 18, 2016 11:10AM PST

I asked several of my friends to join myFitnessPal, and would like to invite them to a private group I have created. I'm having an issue where their names do not show up on the possible invitee list to the group, even though I am already friends with them in the app. My question:
- Is this a known bug?
- Is there a work around?

Thanks so much for your help!

Hello,

Thank you for participating in our community!

There is currently a bug where users who haven’t previously visited the community pages are not appearing for group owner’s to invite.

If there are users you aren’t able to invite to your group because they don’t show up when typing their username, one work around is to send them a private message or write on their wall with a link to the group (we suggest private messages for private groups) Once they have visited the community pages, you should be able to invite them to your group.

Please note that invitations to groups don’t currently show up in your main MyFitnessPal notifications, but in the community specific notifications located under the bell icon on the community pages.

Thanks for your understanding while we work to make the group invite process easier.

Warm Regards,
Alex
MyFitnessPal Community Manager
