Making the Most of Your Home Page

Oct 7, 2019 9:08:00 AM / by Tanya Alvarado

Every client’s platform is a reflection of their company culture and mission. Your users should feel like they can come to this platform to feel involved and up to date with company news and events. Our team wants to make sure that you take full advantage of what our platform has to offer and that your users keep coming back for more. Here are some ways administrators and event coordinators can take advantage of the platform and make it a pleasing experience for all. Before launching the platform to all company users, administrators and event coordinators should read this! *Scroll down for a video summary

Your Home Page

First and most importantly, create and book events! We recommend implementing a best practice, among your administrators and event coordinators, to populate the platform with events before launching. If no events are created, no events will be featured on the Home page and your users will log into a barren platform. Our team at InvolveSoft is always happy to help with this during the training and implementation period. Create in-person events, virtual events that give users a link to join, or book non-profit events with InvolveSoft’s help. Making events in different communities and ticking the box to Feature the event is the best way to populate users’ platform with plenty of content.

When creating an event, remember to tick the “I want to feature this event” box in order for it to populate under “Featured Activities” on the Home page.

Create events to populate users’ Home page.

 

 

Second, create a company announcement that appears at the top of the Home page. Grab users’ attention even further by adding external links, photos, and videos to any company announcement.

Finally, by going into the Community that you oversee and then clicking the Communications tab you will find 3 announcement options to send out to users. Create a newsletter, update, or survey that you can feature to your Home page. The great thing about these types of communications is that you can be creative in how and what you use them for.
