Features for creating online community with groups
Foster a sense of community
Groups aren’t just a useful way to understand who your constitutents are and what they care aboutthey’re also a way to enable supporters to connect with each other.
Within each group, members can have discussions about issues that are important to them: the candidate’s position on a major issue, opportunities to get involved, planning for events, and more.
Connect onlineand offline
Online organizing is most effective when it encourages offline connections.
Your groups can host, publicize, and collect RSVPs for their own events. Online discussion can then turn into offline action.
As with all Camelot events, group-hosted events are fully searchable, and RSVPs are tagged to voters in your database.
Keep tabs on what’s going on
Although groups are public, they’re connected to powerful backend tools that you can use as a Grassroots administrator.
See who’s signing up and when, filter group memberships, and see group affiliations in your voter’s records.
You also have full control: you can require approval for groups and events before they’re published and can edit or delete any content after the fact.
