You can easily invite attendees to your Gather Space by simply sharing the Gather link or sending an email.
Send Invite Link or Email
Click Participants in the Left Nav Menu to open the Participants panel, where you can view all guests in your Space. At the bottom of the panel, click Invite.
The Gather Invite window opens, where you can generate a link to copy or enter emails to contact guests directly. You can choose when the invitation link will expire: in 1 day (default), 1 hour, 6 hours, 12 hours, 7 days, or 1 month. (The expiration applies to both a copied link and an emailed invitation.) After you choose your link expiration, click Copy Invite Link. The button flashes green and says Copied!, and the link is in your clipboard. Paste your link wherever desired.
You can also enter an email address and click Send Invite. The button flashes green and says Invite Sent! (To send multiple email invites, you enter emails individually and click Send Invite for each. ) When you're finished, click I'm done inviting people.
Note: When your guest clicks the link, their browser may suggest to install the Gather Desktop app. They can choose whether to install the app or continue in their browser.
When can I send invites?
You can send invitations out to your attendees ahead of or during your event. If a guest clicks the link to the Space prior to the start of your event, they can enter it to explore and familiarize themselves with the Space. Your Gather Space will be hosted on a free server outside of the premium reservation time block, so up to 25 users can enter any time prior to the event. If you want to keep guests out of the Space until the event starts, you can make your Space password protected. Then, when you're ready, you can remove the password.
Tip: Send out this Guest Guide to Gather prior to the event!
