Chat group admins and non admins can now invite people to request to join a team chat group. Scanning a QR code or clicking on a sharable link will either:
Install the app and issue a request to join that chat group for users who do not currently have the ClubZap app OR
Initiate a request to join that chat group for users who already have the app installed but are not members of that group
Request to join a group using QR Code or Sharable Link
Any person who is part of a chat group as an admin or a regular user (parent/player) can now invite others to join that chat group using a QR code which can be scanned by the person who wants to join your chat group. Alternatively a link to join initiating a request to join the chat group can be shared using messaging applications such as email, SMS, WhatsApp and Slack etc.
