Friends > Add New Friend via Email

This is the page that will appear from your Friend's List if you decide to invite a Friend via Email. Is your Friend already a member of Gluco-Share? If they are, be sure to use the Email that they are using for their account Log In. This will allow them to accept you right away. A notification will go right into their account that you are inviting them to be Friends and all they have to do is Accept your invitation. However, if your Friend is NOT a member of Gluco-Share, it will send them an email to this address and tell them about Gluco-Share and ask them to join Gluco-Share in order to become your Friend.




Enter the email carefully and make sure you spell it correctly. If you do not, they will never receive your request. If you send an email, you might want to follow up with them and make sure the email as received. Sometime the invite might go into their Spam or Junk Mail folder. Check with your Friend and make sure they get the invite, that you spelled the email correctly, that you used the email they have as an account, and/or they understand why they are being asked to join. The email will come them from "" so have them look for that.

Before you send the invitation out to your Friend, set their Permissions. If you do NOT set them, they will default to all Permissions being turned off. Your three choices to set are as follows:

Can Your Friend Add and Delete a Glucose Entry For You? - if you set this to YES, then they can add a Blood Glucose reading for you via the Check page or Delete a reading from your History.
Can Your Friend View Your Glucose Values? - if you set this to YES, then the actual numbers you entered will show up for them to see in your History, on their Dashboard, and under Check in their Friends List. If you are not comfortable with this, then turn it to NO.
Can Your Friend View Your Rewards and Receive Points? - if you set this to YES, then they can see your Challenges and see how you are doing with your readings being on time. Also every time you get 4 Gluco Points for an on-time reading, they will benefit by getting 2 Gluco Points for themselves. If you have a late reading, you will get 2 Gluco Points and they will get 1 Gluco Point. This a way for you to Reward your Friends for their support. For more information on the Point System and Reward Explanations, see the section concerning this subject.
