Members are trying to accept invitations to a board today and the emailed link is leaving them without any success. When we test drove the "add members" function on Monday the link directed one to sign-in or log-in and create an account. Has something changed?

  • What is happening when they click on the link? Are they getting an error message? What browser are they using? – Daniel LeCheminant Sep 21 '11 at 22:29

    @DanielLeCheminant I seem to be in the same situation. I created an account on Trello, requested an invitation to a board (out of band), got the invitation e-mail (sent 2011-09-24 03:15Z), clicked on the link (around 2011-09-24 11:30Z), and was redirected immediately to the usual board URL where I saw what seems to be exactly the same page as before (it's a public board). I'm still not a member of the board, and there doesn't seem to be any kind of “accept invitation” or “join board” button. I tried in both Chrome 14 and Firefox 5. – Gilles Sep 24 '11 at 11:50
  • I'm also having an issue with people not being able to accept invitations. In my case, the two people I had invited, both got a message saying 'unauthorized' when they clicked on the link in the invitation. Both were also using Internet Explorer. Any ideas? – user13827 Oct 3 '11 at 23:42
  • What version of Internet Explorer were they using? If it was less than version 9, they may have hit this bug: trello.com/card/board/… – Daniel LeCheminant Oct 4 '11 at 0:33

I'm not sure if this is the issue that you're facing, but there is a bug in Trello that prevents people from accepting invitations to public boards.

(The fix for that will go out with the next release of Trello)

    I've now clicked my invite link again, and this time I saw an button to accept the invitation, which worked. I guess I'm confirming the fix works. – Gilles Sep 30 '11 at 23:42
