In Telegram IM client, normally when I add members to my group, I type their username in the box and it's displayed on the list. However some users don't have a username, so they aren't listed when typed by their name, therefore I can't add them.

Is it by design, or there is any workaround?

Q: How do I add more members? What's an invite link?

You can add your contacts, or using search by username.

It is easy to migrate existing groups to Telegram by sending people an invite link. To create an invite link, go to Group Info — Add Member — Invite to Group via Link.

Anyone who has Telegram installed will be able to join your group by following this link. If you choose to revoke the link, it will stop working immediately.
