What is an Invite Link?

Invite links are links to a discord server that contains a series of strings after the discord.gg link. They are usually randomly generated when you get an invite link. This link can also be customized if the Discord server has reached a certain amount of Server Boosts.

You can make an invite link and send it to someone to add them to your Discord server. If you are friends with them on Discord, you may also message them directly and send an Instant Invite link. Just in case, if you might want to change the invite link so that it never expires, you can choose how long until anyone can use the link that you generated.

 

Different ways of sending an invite link

The main difference of the two ways on inviting your friends on a Discord server is that the direct invite method, as it name suggest, invite directly to a certain person or a single person only. On the other hand, by copying the invite link, you can share the link or invite multiple person using the same link as long as you edit the link so that it won't expire easily and won't expire after some uses.

Here's the difference when you send invite links

 

Direct Invite

  • You will be sending a single person by clicking on "Invite"
  • You have to look up for their username before sending the invite.

 

Copying the Invite Link

  • You can send to multiple members
  • You can send on different messaging apps like Messenger, iMessage, Twitter, Telegram, etc.
  • You can edit the uses and control the usage of the invite

Step 6. Generate a New Link

After selecting both the limits, you can now generate a new link by clicking on "Generate a New Link"

Note: You can opt to grant temporary membership for new members. Temporary members are automatically kicked when they disconnect unless a role has been assigned. This only works if you have a verification system that would give them roles. This is for the secutiry of the server.
