New: invite people to a Google+ Community via a link

Community owners and moderators can share an invite link with their group however they choose. People with the link will be able to directly join both private and ask-to-join public Communities, and anyone who doesn’t have a Google account or Google+ profile will be able to create one along the way. Communities that are restricted to a given G Suite organization will continue to only be accessible to members of that organization.

This option is rolling out on desktop and mobile web (not the Android or iOS apps).

* Only owners and moderators can create, access, or change an invite link.

* Anyone with the link can join the Community as long as an owner or moderator hasn’t turned off the link or created a new one.

* If you use Google+ for work or school and have turned on domain restriction for your Community, invite links will only work for people within your organization.

* If you’ve been banned from a Community, you can’t join the Community using an invite link. 

Enable "Hold for Review" to screen new posts before they appear in the Community.
