Hubb requires that you send an "invite link" to your users to allow them access into the site. This invite link is what allows them to create a password to log in.
Usually, these invite links are generated via the Invite Email tool. But you can also use Custom Emails to send out these invite links. This article will go over how to use the Custom Email tool to send out an Invite Email.
Take a look at this article to review how to use the Custom Email feature before we get started.
Generate Invite URL
You can generate a unique invite email for your users by using a "merge field" in the invite link. Merge fields will pull in data wherever you place them.
Let's break down this example invite link:
- This is the base Hubb domain. This does not change.
- This is where you place the "merge field". Make sure it looks like this:
- This is the "eventId". This ID will remain the same for the whole event.
- This is the "eventURL". This also remains the same for the entirely of the event. This URL is the same URL as what you use to access the Hubb site.
The easiest way to generate this URL is to copy an invite URL that has already been sent from the system. From the Hubb site, send yourself a test invite email. Copy the hyperlink that comes from the "Click here" link, and you'll see something very similar to the screenshot above.
Here's what an unmodified Invite link looks like when it's copied directly from a Hubb email:
Pay close attention to where it says ?id= - the string of numbers and letters after this is what we want to modify.
We need to change this to:
This will pull in the appropriate "token" for that specific user. This merge field will only work from the Custom Email tool. If used outside of the Custom Email tool, it will not function as a "merge field".
