These are the options:

    • Per view - The user will have to input the code every time the page refreshes.
  • Access denied to logged in users - Enable this option to enable the restrictions to all users except the admin. Disable it to make the code works only for guest users.

  • Access denied page URL - The user will be redirected to this page once he/she tries to access locked content with an expired code. Learn how to set this page up: Invitation Code Content Access - How To - Display Content Access Form (Shortcode)
