Lesson 1: Set up

When you first sign up, you're taken to the Members page of your brand new group. Follow a short tutorial to walk through the initial stages of getting your group off the ground in

Creating a new group

Your first group is created for you when you sign up for a new account, but if you already have a account, or want to create additional groups, you can do so. 

  1. From the group browser on the left, click the New group link.
  2. Fill in the group name. If you have an organization, you can also place this group as a sub-group to a parent group within the organization. 

If you begin with a basic group, you can always choose to upgrade your group to an organization later. 

Setting up your calendar (optional)

If your group hosts events in person or virtually, the calendar tab will quickly become one of your favorite features. 

Start by adding one-time or recurring events to your calendar, and optionally asking members to RSVP or sign up to do or bring something. 

Get word out to members (after you add them in Lesson 2) by sending an email Announcement about a specific event, or using the "Share calendar with members" option to send a secure link to the calendar page where they can see all the events without having to log in.
