How do I send messages and share projects with my volunteers?

VOMO Groups in your Administration Dashboard allows you to organize your members, send messages, and share projects.

First, you need to create a group (or subgroup). Follow this article with step by step instructions on how to create a new group and add new members.

 

How to send a message

  1. Locate your group (or subgroup) in your Administration Dashboard Groups page (app.vomo.org/admin/groups).

  3. Press Messages to access the group message with the members in your group. (Remember, VOMO Groups only allows group messaging, and one of the members has to be an admin or an organizer. Otherwise, messaging will not work. There is no peer-to-peer messaging in VOMO) To send a message type in the text box at the bottom and press the green SEND button. You can also share a project by pressing SHARE PROJECT below the SEND button.
