How to help your members register
One of the key features of Unison.io is that your members can register themselves to join your groups!
There are three easy methods that allow members to register themselves:
A public calendar can be used to allow those not in your group to RSVP directly for an event, get reminders, and be automatically added to the group in the process by entering their email. Existing group members can also sign up on the public calendar by entering their email and then password.
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 message to immediately start receiving new posts.
Registration pages 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.
Setting up onboarding options
To set up onboarding options for a group:
- Click on the name of the group on the left.
- Choose Onboarding from the Admin drop down in the upper right.
To set up a public calendar, toggle the button in the top section of the page to the on position. The URL can then be copied to post to your site or added to an email.
Text-to-join and Registration pages are Organization group features.
To set up text-to-join, toggle the button in the bottom portion of the page to the on position. A pop-up will ask you to set a text-to-join keyword. Click OK once you have a keyword you like.
To set up a registration page, toggle the button in the top section of the page to the on position. The registration page can then be customized. When done, the registration URL can then be shared with others via social media, email, or embedding a button on your website.
And just like always, if a member joins a sub-group, they will automatically be added to any parent groups in the organization, as well, with no additional steps.
