Sending Mass Communications

GroupSpot allows organizers to send different types of mass communications to keep the group updated on everything from important announcements to the score of the game.

1. From your group’s home screen, select the menu at the top of your screen and choose Communications.

2. Next, choose how you want to reach your audience: Push Notification, In-App Alert, Email, or Chat.

  • When you send a Push Notification, In-App Alert, or Email, prepare your message and choose your subgroups if applicable. Then press SEND
  • A push notification is a banner that flies in from the top of your screen and will display regardless whether GroupSpot is open or closed. These are great when you are under the gun and need to get people’s attention ASAP.
  • An in-app alert is a badge with a number that appears on your group avatar. These are great for soft reminders.   
  • An email is useful too in that it can get delivered to everyone in your group or if applicable, just the subgroups you select.
  • Push notifications, in-app alerts, and emails can be sent immediately or they can be scheduled for a future date and time. 
  • Then there’s chat. If you want to chat with your full group, select Chat from your list of communications options, to initiate a group chat. 


The final item on the Communications screen is your History which allows you to access any upcoming scheduled communications or your previously sent communications. This sent box helps admins audit their communications.
