Community Groups get you with access to the Interest | Hobby group features and the Contributor feature.
With the Contributor feature turned on, the Page reconfigures to display 'Submit an Event' and 'Start a Group' prompts. Members can use these to setup their own Pages. Having done so, a contributor request is initiated when they post an event. If that event is approved by you, it appears in your pages what's on list and the Group or Organiser behind the event is added as a Contributor.
Here you can learn more about key features and tools.
Start a Community Group today and use the magic of activities to rally people together.
Newly created Groups may not be approved or published if;
(a) selling products or services appears to be the main objective
(b) there is little or no meaningful content
(c) cover images contain marketing material
Take care when naming the Group; the name forms the pages URL and can only be changed once. Where possible choose a short, yet descriptive name.
Please also ensure:
(a) you have the right to use the name,
(b) it does not violation or breach any copyright, IP, trademark or other naming rights.
COMMUNITY MEETS reserves the right, where deemed necessary to request proof of ownership or naming rights. Creating Pages to reserve a name is not allowed; inactive pages and content maybe removed from the website at the sole discretion of Community Meets.
There is no rush to complete this field; it can be updated after the page is created.
When describing the Group, the more detail you can provide, the better. This may also assist with the approvals process, as pages with little or no meaningful content may not be approved.
Some things you may like to cover are;
● A general overview of the Group
● What sort of events will you be posting
● The contributor feature, if active
● The benefits of joining the Group
● Any associated costs or fees
● Any there guidelines or rules
● Health, wellbeing and insurance
A location lets members know where the group is based. COMMUNITY MEETS recommends adding a general location such as a suburb or area, versus a physical address.
