📋 Overview

ℹī¸ This feature is currently in beta. If you'd like to get early access to the beta version of group sign-up for your organization and help us make the feature better, sign up here and we'll be in touch!

Our Group Signup feature help supporters seamlessly sign up a group and make sure their group members register. In the dashboard, you can keep track of groups attending your events.

This is particularly useful for people bringing friends and family to an event who do not have email addresses. Or, maybe your organization hosts groups of volunteers from workplaces, and needs them to claim their spots up front.


📝 How to enable group signup

When creating an event, find the section called "Group signup." When you activate group signup, you are required to specify the maximum number of additional signups a supporter can claim.

When group signup is turned on, supporters have the option to claim signups for additional group members on the signup page.


👨‍👩‍đŸ‘Ļ‍đŸ‘Ļ What happens when a supporter registers a group

When a supporter registers a group for your event, they are prompted to share their unique group signup share link with their group members. When a group member signs up using their unique link, Mobilize will know that they are a part of the group leader's group.

You will also get an email notification when a group leader registers a group, letting you know the name of the group leader and the number of group members they registered.

Your supporters will receive a notification via Email and SMS of their group signup, and reminders to make sure their group members sign up on Mobilize.

🚨 NOTE: for virtual events, it is strongly recommended that all group members sign up using the group signup link to ensure they receive any links to join (via Zoom, Google Meet, etc.) and other joining instructions. This is especially relevant for Zoom meetings requiring registration, as group members will not be able to attend those events without registering on Mobilize.

Some group members may not signup through Mobilize. While we encourage group leaders to ask all of their group members to sign up so that they will receive the automated communications, "unknown" signups will still count toward the total registered number for the event (more on this below).


đŸ’ģ Viewing group signups in the dashboard

Group signups, whether the group member signs up or not, are included in the total signup count for your event, and count towards filling any capacity you have set for a timeslot. Signups that have not yet been claimed are considered "Unknown signups" in your dashboard.

On the shift details page for your event, you can see which of your supporters are group leaders, which are group members, and detailed information about the composition of each group.
