Lesson 2: Add members
Unison.io helps you communicate more effectively with people for whom you already have contact information, and also helps you get the contact information for people who you don't.
Adding members whose contact info you have
Once you are ready to add members, click the "+" button in the upper right corner of the Members page.
- If you have an existing email chain, you can copy/paste or type member information by hand using their email or cell number.
- Have everyone organized in a list or spreadsheet? Add members by importing the file.
- Are there members in another group that you want to add to this one? Add members from an existing group.
- Add members individually if you want to add additional profile information, as well.
After adding members, send them a welcome email with any information they might need about your group.
Gathering info from new members
When you are looking to grow your membership, look no further than the onboarding options available in Unison.io.
Making your calendar public allows anyone with the URL to RSVP directly for an event and be automatically added to the group by entering their email. Existing group members can also sign up on the public calendar by entering their email and then password.
Registration forms allow you to not only ask a member to join your group, but also optionally have them fill out a customized form to gather additional information you need when they join the group.
Text-to-join is a way for members to join groups and get connected with your organization by sending a text from their phone. By providing them with a dedicated number for your organization and keyword for the group they want to join, individuals can send a quick text to immediately start receiving new messages.
Regardless of the way you add members, all new members will immediately start to receive notifications of group activity.
