Quick start for group organizers

Sign up for Joinable

Visit app.joinable.us for the web app or download our native app: Apple app or Android app. You may find the web app is better for setting up your group, but also try out the native apps, which provide a great participation experience.

Confirming your contact information

When you first sign up for Joinable, we require an email and a phone number and will authenticate by sending you a code. We don't use passwords and instead try to remember your device to allow you to enter the app without having to log in. If you signed up with an email and don't see a response from us in your inbox, check your spam and promotions folders — the email will be from "Joinable".

Your first group

When you have successfully signed in, you'll be taken through our onboarding screens to tell you a little more about Joinable and make sure we have all the information we need. 

Once in the app, you will be able to create your first group by clicking on the "+ Create a Group" button on the far left of the screen, in the groups menu. Learn more about creating your first group

Next step is to select your group's settings, which can be found in the "advanced options" drop down in the create group modal. Learn more about group settings.

You will also receive an email in your Joinable Inbox with helpful hints on how to get your group started!

Your personal settings

You'll want to review and update your personal settings before you welcome your first group members. You can find your global user settings (these settings are applied to all your groups) at the bottom of the group tray/menu, in the cog wheel located to the right of your name. Learn more about your personal settings.

Group notifications

Admins can determine their group's notification settings prior to inviting members. Click on the drop down menu by your group's name, followed by "Permission Settings", then select your "Default Member Notifications". Learn more about notifications.

Get familiar with your new group

Before you invite your first member, explore the app. Don't worry, you won't break anything. We recommend inviting a close friend or family member, so you can become familiar with how the invitation process works. Did you know you can invite someone with simply their phone number? Try it out.

When you're ready, learn about how to invite your members.
