Create non http(s):// redirect in .htaccess

I’m trying to get my .htaccess to redirect links to open our app. For example, I want to go to app_name://invitecode

While the following validates in a htaccess tester, it doesn’t seem to work in production. Any suggestions?

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^invite/(.*)$/? quill://$1/ [L,R=301]

According to this stackoverflow post, you can use RedirectMatch to do that:

RedirectMatch ^invite/(.*)/?$ quill://$1/

Also, the $ should be at the end of the RegEx pattern.
