If your project is marked as private then that join link will take you to a join request form, fill that out and then approve as administrator.
Doing that gets me the same thing as when I sent myself a Join Request and clicked on the link in it -- a page headed with "Join The <my family finder Project> Group Project" - but the page has no "Join" button and no "Request" button. I've found out how to get the Description of the Project in there, and have gotten that working. But can see no way to join from the page inviting me to join.

Is the "Join" or "Request" Button supposed to show, or how am I supposed to join from the page inviting me to join?

Is there a lag time before this works, or are there certain steps/actions/setting up I have to do before they will work?

I would contact customer support then. As suggested I have always used the "Returning Join Link" and never had any problems inviting people to join a project or joining one of my own kits. It seems odd that you wouldn't see a join button when you are logging into the individual kits and going to that link. Maybe because your project is new? It would seem like an IT problem to me. Good luck.

Thanks!! My fault.

Despite what you said, I copied the "Join Link" instead of the "Returning Join Link". At this point, not sure if I was looking at the words "Returning Join Link" but goofed in what I copied, or if managed to overlook the word "Returning" in your directions, but yay!

Am still baffled why what they send when you choose "Send Join Request", which is the "Join Request" link, does not have a Join Button, or if that might be a goof, but at least I can now get Kits added.
Was getting totally spooked.
