Shared Activities (Direct Connections)

Activities

Designed to make it even easier for you to get together with friends and neighbors. Hikes, group bike rides, coffee dates, pick up soccer games - all can be planned, shared in My Community and joined by others, in just a few simple steps. 

Members can create a 'Joinable' activity, including date, time, how many it's for and message those attending, all in one place.

Your connections will be able to see ‘Joinable Activities’ under the ‘Activities’ tab and create their own events that they would like to invite other people to join.

Create an activity

The ‘Activities’, ‘My Activities’ tab lists all of your personal activities which are open for other people to join, along with any events that you have already signed up to. 

To create your own shareable activity, select ‘+ Share’, then ‘Activity’. You can include the title of your activity, a description, select how many people can join in, along with the date, time and RSVP details.

You can edit your event details at any point. To make changes, click on the activity, followed by ‘...’. You will then have the option to either ‘Cancel activity’ or ‘Edit activity’.

Sign up for a Joinable activity

All of your connections’ ‘Joinable Activities’ can be viewed in ‘Activities’, ‘Shared Activities’. Each post will include the owner, activity, when and how many people can join. To sign up, click the ‘Join’ button at the bottom of the post, including if you are bringing any additional guests (please note the host may not allow additional guests).

The host will be sent a chat message to say that you are planning on joining the activity. At any point you can click on 'Change your response' and the organizer will be notified.

'Add to your calendar' will save the event in your personal calendar. You can make this a default setting by clicking on the 'Direct Connections' menu (cog wheel), 'Calendar Settings' and toggle the 'Calendar invites' button to on, which will automatically send invites when a new activity is created.

By clicking on the ‘...’ you can choose ‘Message organizer’ and ‘Hide activity’.

Share a Joinable activity

Members can share an activity with either their connections, or with someone outside of Joinable. After creating an activity, click on the "Share" button, which will generate a QR code and shareable link. Friends can either scan the code or click on the link to join, no Joinable registration required.

'Shared Activities' is a list of all activities that you can join. 'My Activities' comprise of your own events and those that you have signed up to join.
