CampusGroups provides a complete toolkit for groups to manage your activities within a private campus network, where students can connect, share, and get involved. The system provides dedicated access and tools to three types of users.

1. STUDENTS

  • Discover: Students can explore groups, activities and a campus directory of users
  • Stay informed: Students stay up-to-date on everything that is happening on campus through the community feed, group pages, event calendars, and notifications
  • Communicate: Sharing news and announcements with other group members or to the entire campus has never been easier
  • Engage: Students can get involved by posting to the community feed or their group feed, joining groups, registering to events, answering forms or surveys, and becoming leaders of groups

 

2. GROUP OFFICERS

Each group (e.g., club, department) has a number of designated officers who can access a dedicated group management area. Officers can use a number of tools
to manage their organization more efficiently. These tools are classified under
specific modules.

  • Dashboard: Track recent activity and quickly access commonly used features (e.g., Events, Email), manage your group settings, list of officers, and access rights
  • Members: Add and manage group members or validate people who requested to join the group
  • Emails: Compose new emails using mailing lists or email templates and check delivery status
  • Events: Create events, sell tickets, track registrations and event statistics
  • Forms: Create forms or surveys and manage submitted responses
  • Files: Upload and share photos and documents
  • Website: Create and/or administer the group’s website, blog, and discussion boards
  • Money: Keep track and manage the group’s transactions (e.g., club dues collection, ticket sales, refunds)

 

3. SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS

Administrators have access to all of the above, with additional privileges. This includes the rights to modify each of the underlying groups on campus and have access to the administration section.

In the dedicated administration section, you can configure access to the platform, add users or officers, create new groups, email officers, and download lists and reports (e.g., users, officers, events, transactions).
 
Additional administrative features can include:

  • Integration: CampusGroups can integrate with systems in place via API or RSS feeds, calendars can be synchronized in a few clicks with Google Calendar or Outlook, for payments most common gateways are supported (e.g., PayPal, PayFlow, CyberSource, Authorized.net) 
  • Mobile: The service is also available on mobile phones via native iPhone and Android Apps
  • Options: Additional tools available on demand include a Budgeting Tool (where you can allocate budgets to the school’s groups and validate/deny budget requests made by group officers), Room Reservation system, Career Assessment Tool, etc. Specific tools can also be developed and customized on demand
