Whether you manage an amateur sports league, take part in a local charity organization, or head up the student council at your high school school, GroupSpaces is an application that can make it easier to keep your group organized and running smoothly. Instead of relying on out-of-date newsletters to keep everyone informed about what’s going on, organizations that use GroupSpaces can quickly and easily create robust websites, group calendars, social media accounts, and professional-looking email newsletters that will make the snail mail variety a thing of the past.
One of the biggest benefits of using GroupSpaces is the application’s easy website creation tools, which allow users with little to no technical knowledge to make fully functioning, branded websites filled with as much information as they wish in just a matter of hours. Depending on the needs of your group, you can set control levels that allow certain members to edit content with the click of a button, as well. The application is also great for member management, offering an online database that can be accessed securely from any computer at any time. Through this database, you can send out notices regarding upcoming events or deadlines for annual dues without having to type in any email addresses or stuff any envelopes. Once each member’s information has been put into the system, you can organize people by membership type or admin level. Using this classification system, you can then send out alerts to certain committee members within your group without bothering everyone else with excessive emails and notifications.
Among the other popular features offered by GroupSpaces are social networking tools—which can turn a basic email list into a custom social network with photos, personal information, and connection opportunities for each member of the group—public or private Wikis, professional newsletter management options, group calendars, and PayPal integration, which allows groups to sell tickets online or accept membership dues without having to deal with personal checks or cash. Thanks to its amazing features and general ease-of-use, GroupSpaces is an application that no group should be without.
