Temporarily Unable to Bulk Invite to Groups
Ran into an issue sending invites via this group -- https://commons.gc.cuny.edu/groups/oer-faculty-fellows/invite-anyone/
Clicked the "Send Invites" button 10 times or more before browser performed an action (seems invites now went through). Using Chrome, screenshot attached.
One factor that might have contributed... curser was in the "search for members to invite" field due to an aborted addition.

Played with this a bit and was not able to reproduce.
My current best guess is that a separate AJAX action was stalled in your browser, which blocked the clicking of the Send button. This could've been either an autocomplete request (you mentioned that the cursor was in the search input) or the request that takes place after selecting a member from the autocomplete list. This sort of timing issue is more likely to take place when there's latency in AJAX requests, and the autocomplete request is fairly slow by nature. If you happened to be testing at a time when the Commons was experiencing general slowness, it'd make this problem worse.
I'm wary of spending too much time making incremental improvements to this interface for the purposes of the Commons, since it'll be replaced by our new onboarding modal. But I'll bump it to the next milestone in the hopes of at least disabling the Send Invites button while other AJAX requests are in effect.
