Also, looks like local storage is not used at all. My apologies if I'm mistaken.

If I reload the page and run this again, linkedin repeats invites and this script sends invites to the repeated ones as well. Right now, I'm not seeing any repeats in the same session (not sure if linkedin has stopped it or I'm not taking note of people properly)

Can you suggest how to use localstorage to preserve the inviterlist properly? Can you update the script with the same?

Hey Thank you very much! its an amazing script! But one thing is it some how possible to filter after location?
or to change the script that i search from persons from New York City for example and then to add all people there?
Because like this i get only people from the area I'm currently living in...

Working on fixing a few bugs that have come up within the past week. Trying to add the userRole back to the function (more helpful in my opinion). Code is as follows:

"CEO",

    var connectBtns = $(".button-secondary-small:visible");
// 

    if (connectBtns == null) {var connectBtns = inviter.initiate();}

};
inviter.invite = function () {
    var connectBtns = inviter.initiate();
    var buttonLength = connectBtns.length;
    for (var i = 0; i < buttonLength; i++) {
        if (connectBtns != null && connectBtns[i] != null) {inviter.handleRepeat(connectBtns[i]);}
            //if there is a connect button and there is at least one that has not been pushed, repeat
        if (i == buttonLength - 1) {
            console.log("done: " + i);
            inviter.refresh();
        }
