Adding members to my private group debbiemorrell — May 23, 2017 06:45AM PDT

I am having a seriously difficult time adding known MyFitnessPal members to my private group. I cannot locate their user names in any of the search functions and sending them messages, through email, seems to be failing, as well. HELP!

Thank you for participating in our community!

There is currently a limitation in our system 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 workaround 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 primary 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,
MyFitnessPal Community Staff
