Keep Track of Families
The Group Guide lets you keep contact information for your families in an online database, along with their children, children's grades and ages, family phone, email, and address, individuals' phones and emails, and more. When you set up your group, just send everyone a link to your Group Guide site to create their family's account.
Communicate in a Private Forum
The Group Guide message board helps you communicate to your group, and everyone to communicate together. Bring all your online communication into the Group Guide with the Message Board. With a flexible email broadcast list plus forum, administrators and families can distribute email messages to the entire group and all communication is saved to review online. Simply post a message from the web site, or send an email to your private group email address, and everyone gets the message.
Post Activities, Events, Field Trips, and more
With online signups using the FREE Group Guide mobile app for tablets and smart phones (iOS and Android), activity and field trip planning is as simple as it gets. Just post your event, provide the criteria for attendees and volunteers, and your families can sign up with a few taps. You can even have them pay when they sign up through the app. Designate activity coordinators who can also keep up with who signs up, or who can create new activities.
Automatic Payment and Sign-Up Management
When families pay for an event online, their sign up information is recorded automatically for the event, and so is their payment information. Both administrators and families can view their payment information for an event at any time prior to the event happening. Event coordinators can also include event options, such as upgrade seating, guided tours, refundable ticket options, or food fees.
Information On the Go
Access information about activities anywhere from the easy mobile application. Upcoming activities that are available, activities you have signed up for, orders you have made, and contact information for other group members are all available at your fingertips. For activity leaders, easily see who has signed up for an activity and any options or special selections they have made for the activity.
Simple Orders Made Easy
Managing groups, activities, events, and field trips also often involves ordering something. It could be camp T-shirts, pizza lunches, yearbooks, yearly achievement tests, group study books, a video recording of the Christmas play, or any number of other things. Special order activities are easy to create and manage, with payments made online for items with optional quantities, age, or grade criteria.
