Scouting is a tradition that has stood the test of time. But even something as outdoors as scouting can benefit from technology. Active groups like scouts need a platform to organize their outdoor activities, overnights, and leadership councils. With GroupSpot, now they can live in the moment knowing they can easily access important information ahead of any adventure.
Take advantage of your feed for your bigger ticket items like activities, overnights, and leadership councils. And then there’s chat for the lighter, every day back-and-forth and last minute planning. GroupSpot also makes it easy to navigate between the two depending on the nature of the communication.
We make creating and managing standalone and recurring events a walk in the park. From dressing up your best events with photos, location, and RSVP, to adding signups, forms and polls. You can even add custom automated event reminders to set it and forget it, or adjust the status of an event if things suddenly change. Perfect for an active group like scouts.
With such a busy calendar, it’s impossible to run a large scout group without the help of extra hands. This makes Signups an incredibly important feature. Signups can be attached to any post and assigned blocks of time or specific members to any individual task.
Turn standard photo posts into shared photo albums so your members can contribute to and download from a centrally located album. This eliminates all the existing problems of trying to easily share photos with a large group. Shared albums are especially engaging and inclusive around any scout activity, overnight, or any other shared experience.
Having an accurate headcount is important for any activity, overnight, and leadership council. GroupSpot lets you easily RSVP and check availability on your upcoming events.
Schedules are easy to find and can be synced to your device or external calendar. Choose between month or upcoming view and never miss a beat with event reminders.
GroupSpot provides a full-featured, robust chat experience. You can chat 1:1, multi-person chat, or group chat with anyone in the group without having them in your personal contacts.
Subgroups allow admins to parse communications into smaller groups within the larger group. Now communications can be appropriately tailored to cut down the noise.
Reminders can be added to any event or competition. They are especially helpful around your most important events where you want increased attendance, participation, or support.
GroupSpot makes privacy a priority by not selling advertising or your data. Members are comfortable posting, commenting, chatting, and sharing in a high trust, closed group.
