It contains the right amount of features, process and structure to empower staff, leaders, and group members. Let’s explore more.
What is Groupeasy and how it was born?
Leaders struggle to manage motivated groups by force of will and email and often fail to communicate effectively. The team behind Groupeasy knew the technology that could help leaders manage groups effectively. Having diverse career backgrounds in process engineering, IT, and analytics, the team came to a decision to help groups thrive and Groupeasy was finally born. They made several assumptions to offer the most extensive solution for enabling communications in the groups.
- Members should be able to communicate easily and later on should be able to easily find conversation thread.
- Software should be easy and intuitive to use, otherwise group members will not use it.
- Collaborating online should be a stress-free process in the group.
- Technology must remove barriers and should enable collaboration. It must not force the groups to adapt to workflows.
- Privacy and security are two important considerations for people in groups.
- Groups must be able to change leadership.
- People who are members of multiple groups must be able to toggle between these groups from one centralized platform.
Groupeasy was conceived keeping one thing in mind – the ability of group to collaborate seamlessly in a digital space. This platform is different and does much more than the limited group features offered by social media platforms.

Other Features of Groupeasy
Groupeasy has a lot to offer. Some of the key features are listed below:
Any member in the group can post announcements, send messages and reminders for entire group. It can be a virtual place to brainstorm ideas and share thoughts. Whenever a member posts to the Newsboard, all other group members receive a notification via email, txt or both updating them on the latest post.
Messages let you communicate directly with members, sub-groups, or entire group via text, email, or both. You can create messages and send to all or specific members.
Everyone in the group can setup events in the calendar, get reminders, and even download calendar events. Calendar events include to-do lists, attachments and event info that is downloadable to your personal calendar. In addition, if you are in multiple groups you can see a combined calendar of all your different groups events or you can choose to view events by group. Your choice.
Track group activities, streamline assignments, and coordinate sign-ups. The members can even link lists to their calendar events. Importantly, the list module can be used to manage group tasks and efforts – think simplified project management.
Use surveys to take polls and gather input from the members. Ask them a few questions, get their feedback, and make the results available for everyone to see. Sounds interesting? Group decision making is now a snap.
Store photos/images in the galleries. Archive the memorable events within the group’s exclusive space and make them private.
Store the group documents in different folders that everyone has access to. The documents remain at one place and accessible to all members in that specific group.
