Invite people to a group


Here’s how to invite people to join your group:

  1. Go to the profile of the person you’d like to invite and click on the menu button with the three dots in the top right corner.
  2. Select the option Invite to a group.
  3. Select the group you’d like to invite them to.
  4. Fill out your invitation and click on Send.


  1. Go to the group you want to invite somebody to.
  2. Click on the More button on top of the screen and choose Invite others to join this group.
  3. Enter contacts or e-mail contacts in the respective field.
  4. Fill out your invitation and click on Send.

The recipients will now receive an invitation containing a link to your group and can request membership. If you invite non-members they will have to register on XING first.

Tips for selecting potential group members

Please consider the following before inviting someone to join your group:

  • Who is your target group?
  • Why do you think the person you want to invite would be interested in your group? Take the time to browse their profile and see what they entered in their “Wants”, “Skills” and “Interests” fields.
  • Are you merely sending out invitations to add as many people as possible to your group? (Members will realise this and refuse to join your group. They may even report it as spam!)

The invitation message

Here are two handy tips you should think about before sending out invitations:

  • Let the person know why you think your group would be beneficial to them.
  • Address the person by their name as this is more personal and will increase your chances of them accepting your invitation.
