Inviting Group Members

Your GroupNews Group works best when people on your team are members of the Group.

You can invite people to any Group you manage using their email address. If your group is subscribed to a Premium plan, you can also create invitations automatically by setting up one or more approved domains.

Invite People via Email

You can invite anyone to your GroupNews Group using only their email address. If you’re creating a new Group, you’ll have the option to invite people during the setup process. Once your group is created, you can invite more people at any time. To do so, open the main menu and find the option to Invite people to [your group name]. Navigating there will take you to the new invitation screen, like so:

Creating New Invitations to your Group

As you can see, all you need to do is provide the email addresses of the people you want to invite, along with an optional personalized message, and they will receive invitations to join your group. You can also set up the new invitees with administrative rights when then accept your invitation.

Create Invitations automatically with an Approved Domain

If you are subscribed to a Premium plan, and you are a group admin, you can create invitations for people automatically by setting up an approved domain. This allows anyone with an email address that includes your approved domain to automatically join your group. You can find this in your Group options, in the Approved Domains section. It looks like this:

Approved Domain Workflow

As an example, imagine your business website is, and you and your coworkers have work email addresses that end in And you do the following:

  1. You set up a Group for your business, Acme Corporation.
  2. You add as an approved domain in your Group options, as seen above.
  3. Your coworker, Susan, signs up for GroupNews with her work email address, [email protected]
  4. Because Susan’s email address matches your approved domain, when she confirms her account, she will have an invitation to the Acme, Co. Group already waiting for her to accept.

Note that you can configure up to 10 approved domains.

We recommend that you only approve domains that you control. We suggest not using domains like, which will open up invitations for anybody with a Gmail account.
