ℹ️ Note:

  • Replacing the invite link immediately deactivates the old link and creates a new one. This is permanent.
  • Contributors will not be able to join your Custom Network through the previous, deactivated link.
  • Remember to review your external materials where the original link was shared or embedded. Update with the new link to ensure people can still join.
  • If you replace the invite link and choose not to share it, you can "close" your Custom Network to new joiners.
  • You can view and reference your most recent deactivated link, as well as the time and date that the link was replaced.

Referral codes

  • Use referral codes to invite people from different social platforms, people who attended a conference, fans in a loyalty program, and more.
  • When you launch a test, you can select contributors based on the referral code they used to join your network.

To use referral codes, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Contributor networks, then Custom Network.
  2. Choose the Custom Network you want, and click the options (...) menu.
  3. Select Invite contributors.
  4. Click Copy link.
  5. Paste the link into a text editor, like Notepad on Windows or TextEdit on macOS. Invitation links always end with /join

    https://app.usertesting.com/networks/LkLudXXs/join?RID=twitter
    https://app.usertesting.com/networks/LkLudXXs/join?RID=meetup2020
  7. Share the invitation link with the referral code to anyone you want to join your network.
