Welcome back to Crew Tips, a weekly series that gives you best practices and simple steps for making the most out of your Crew app, on both Android and iOS. Last week, we went over Reactions, where to find them and the different ways that you can use them.
This week, we’re talking about one of the best ways to streamline communication on Crew: how to create a new Group. Groups make it easy to communicate efficiently with the coworkers you talk to the most. After all, why plug in all the other bartenders’ names every time you need to send a message to the team? Why ask everyone in the Organization if they can cover a shift for you, when really only other bartenders can do it?
The Groups feature is a handy shortcut that means you and your team don’t have to blast a message out to everyone unnecessarily.
1. Tap into the ‘Coworkers’ tab along the bottom navigation bar in your Crew app
2. In the ‘Groups’ section, tap on ‘Manage’, then tap on the '+' in the upper right corner
3. Select the team members that you’d like to add to the Group and tap on ‘Create Group’
4. Give your Group a name and tap ‘Done’
The new Group will now appear on the Chats and Coworkers screens of all its invited members.
Note: If you assemble the same people named in a pre-existing Group, even under the same name, a duplicate will be formed.
