Are you struggling to send a review invite on the stories page because, a pesky Red X is appearing in the place of the Invite button? ❌
Well look no further! This article will explain:

  • Why there is a Red X preventing you from sending an invite

  • How to make the Red X disappear

  • How to get that invite sent πŸš€

Why am I getting a Red X?

There are two main reason the ❌ might appear and prevent invites from being sent.

1. The contact already Exists in Nicejob - If the contact already exists in your Nicejob account the ❌ will appear when trying to add the contact again as new contact. πŸ‘Œ

To prevent accidental duplicate review invites Nicejob does not allow duplicate contacts in your account. Therefore, If the customer email or phone number is already in your People Page you will not be able to send the invite by adding the contact from the Stores Page.

2. The email or phone number is not valid
If the contact's phone number or email is not valid, or if they have been mistakenly entered in the wrong field, the invite button will unfortunately show a ❌
Don't worry though, simply ensuring the correct and valid phone number or email is entered in the proper field will solve this issue and allow the invite to be sent with ease. πŸ™‚

How to Make the Red X Disappear

Try to refreshing the browser! We know it sounds simple but, sometimes it takes time to reset the ❌
A quick browser refresh solves the this. After the browser is refreshed the ❌ will disappear and you will be able to send the invite. πŸ˜ƒ
