Today we are introducing Groups, a new set of app administrator tools and user functionality that takes a fresh approach in connecting members of your mobile audience with the smaller groups within your organization.
The backbone of this new approach is an automated news feed that prioritizes the latest information from the groups that a user belongs to or follows.
As a result, your app delivers an improved user experience with groups that are easier to research, follow, and join and automated information that is relevant and consumable on a mobile device.
Here is an overview of the features included in Groups:
If the word “Groups” is too generic, you can use any other reference (clubs, chapters, residence halls, committees, teams, etc.) that makes sense for your organization in the administrator tools and it will cascade throughout your app.
Our example uses the ficticious Mid-Central University and its Groups section that connects students to clubs on campus.
As you read the article, keep in mind the same explanation applies to professional associations and organizations that have committees, chapters, or other internal groups for their members to join.
In this next screen, our sample Mid-Central U student has already joined three Clubs. Here is a description of what he or she and other students experience when they access the feed.

Inside their browser-based tools, app administrators have access to new reports on user participation in the groups they created for their organization.
Groups can send notifications to their own members. Notifications can also be sent from an overall app administrator to every group in its organization.
Groups is in its final testing stages and will be available to all MobileUp customers in a few weeks. Please contact your account manager or email us if you would like to be notified when it is available. Pricing is available on the Groups product page.
We are also hosting a series of webinars where we will explain Groups and demonstrate some of its features. Sign up here:
Every organization has a need to better connect its individuals to group activities and other individuals that share their interests.
