  5. Clicking Dashboard -> Send in…


Clicking Dashboard -> Send invitation -> Get invite link does not do anything.

After I open my Dashboard at dashboard.duolingo.com, the page tells me I have no students. I click Send invitation, fill in the section name, click Get invite, but nothing happens.

Students can add me from their settings, that does work. I'd like to use the invite system, though.

I have the same problem.


Can you tell me what browser/version you're using? Thanks!


It does work for me now. I tried it again yesterday evening (GMT) and the issue seemed to be already fixed. Thanks for getting in touch.


What does not work is clicking on the generated URL as a student. Dashboard gives me an url like https://www.duolingo.com/o$o=me@example.edu. If a student clicks it, the "Uloži změny" button is grayed out. It activates only after they make a change in the two form fields.

I am using Chromium Version 39.0.2171.95 (64-bit) although I guess this is just a simple lack of foresight on the part of Duolingo web developers, who did not realize that the form might be ready to be submitted without the student actually typing in anything, not a browser error.

(I tried all this with the actual link containing my actual e-mail address first and got identical results.)


The button is grayed out because it is already set by the time you land on the page and does not need to be saved another time. You can see evidence of this if you leave and come back to the page - the email and section combination should be properly set.


Thanks for explaining to me what is happening. I noticed that nowadays clicking the link works differently, the student is presented with a pop-up asking for a confirmation. I think it is a helpful improvement.
