From the same pop-up window, you can copy the server’s invite link to promote your community in other places or send it to someone who never used Discord before.

By default, your link expires after 7 days. However, you can change this by clicking on ‘Edit Invite Link‘.

If you’re trying to build a community, it’s a good idea to set the link to never expire and have no limits on the number of users who can click on it. This will lessen the chances of someone wanting to join the community and the link no longer working.

Once you made the changes to the invite link, click on ‘Generate a New Link‘. Then, click on ‘Copy’ and send it to invite someone to the Discord server.
