Introduction

MeetupBoost.com is a collection of tools that provide additional features and capabilities not provided by Meetup.com. These features mainly cater to the Event Organizer and the Group Organizer. These features include:

Getting Around

The section on the upper left of the page provides you with navigation links to various pages on the site. The right side of the page displays the content for the navigation item you selected on the left. The space at the bottom left allows you to filter the content to help you find or pick out specific information from the content.

All the blue text are clickable links to areas on this Web site. Icons such as and can be clicked to open a new window to Meetup.com. You can then close the new window to return to your spot on this site.

It is sometimes useful to open a new view to MeetupBoost.com. For example, you may be looking at the members in your group and you wish to check something for a specific member but you don't want to lose the filtering or anything on your current page, or perhaps your group has a lot of members and it will take a while to reload this page. Most Web browsers allow you to right-click on a link and choose to open it in a new tab or Window. Using this feature you can open a new view for the member and simply close that view when you are done, or keep two (or more) views open to more quickly switch back and forth between MeetupBoost.com pages.

My Home

The Home page provides access to all of your main navigation options. The home page is where you will usually begin. You can get back to the home page by clicking on your name where it appears next to the . Go there now by clicking here.

My Account

Prerequisites:

The My Account page allows you to change your personal settings for the MeetupBoost.com site. Your email address can be provided here to allow MeetupBoost.com to contact you when there are problems with your account or with settings or actions you initiated through the site.

Find a Group

Prerequisites:

The My Groups page is accessed from your My Home page and it allows you access to all the groups where you are currently a member. This is a great place to start when you need to navigate to a particular group.

The search options in the bottom of the left pane allow you to filter by such things as groups you organize or by name, among other things.

My Memberships

Prerequisites:

The My Memberships page is accessed from your My Home page and it is another view of all the groups where you are currently a member. In this case the information shown reflects your personal membership and activity in each group.

Find an Event

Prerequisites:

The My Events page is accessed from your My Home page and it lists all the events from all your groups. This is a great place to go if you are looking for a particular event or just want to see what's comning up in your calendar.

The search options allow you to filter by such things as events for which you have RSVPed or events that you are hostng, among other things.

You can also find an event by going to a specific group and then visiting the "Group Events" page for that group.

My Attendance

Prerequisites:

The My Attendance page is accessed from your My Home page and it lists of all the events in which you have been involved, either through an RSVP or hosting.

This page requires a lot of database searching so it does take some time to load.

My Messages

Prerequisites:

The My Messages page is accessed from your My Home page and it lists all messages you sent or sent to you via the MeetupBoost.com system. Meetup.com does not currently allow access to messages sent directly via Meetup.com so these cannot be displayed here.

My Forum Posts

Prerequisites:

The My Forum Posts page is accessed from your My Home page and it lists all the forum posts you have made via MeetupBoost.com. Meetup.com does not currently allow access to posts made to Message Boards so these cannot be displayed here. This is a great place to start when you are trying to find a discussion forum.

My Tasks

Prerequisites:

The My Tasks page is accessed from your My Home page and it lists all your tasks for all your groups. This is a great place to start when you are looking for the actions you need to take in order to keep your groups running smoothly.

Tasks only apply to groups that are managed by MeetupBoost.com. In order to have your group managed by MeetupBoost.com, visit the Group Settings page for your group.

Tasks are automatically created by the MeetupBoost.com system when there are actions that the group organizer should take. You may control the creation of these tasks via the Group Settings. You may also create your own tasks to help you keep track of actions you'd like to take later.

Tasks created by MeetupBoost.com are automatically removed when the system detects that those tasks have been completed. You may also remove them yourself if you prefer, or if you decide not to take the related action.

My Income

Prerequisites:

The My Income page is accessed from your My Home page and it lists transactions related to the members of your MeetupBoost.com managed groups. In order to have your group managed by MeetupBoost.com, visit the Group Settings page for your group.

Meetup.com only allows access to the last payment made by each member so this list will only show transactions available since your group became managed by MeetupBoost.com.

Log Out

Prerequisites:

The Log Out link does not actually log you out of MeetupBoost.com or Meetup.com but it does take you to the Meetup.com page where you can log out of both sites.

Event Description

Prerequisites:

MeetupBoost.com allows you to use rich formatting in your event description and even include images and videos.

The toolbar above the description field provides many predefined paragraph formats, font controls, paragraph alignments and bullet styles.

Uploading an image from your computer is not yet supported but you can include an image if you have its Web address. Open the "Insert" menu and select "Insert Image". Enter the Web address in the "Source" field of the form. The "Description" will be used for the visually impaired and the "Dimensions" will be filled in automatically but you can change them in order to stretch the image to a different size.

Uploading a video from your computer is not yet supported but you can include a video if you have its Web address. Open the "Insert" menu and select "Insert Video". Enter the Web address in the "Source" field of the form. The "Dimensions" can be left blank or you can provide values in order to stretch the video to a different size. An alternate method is to use the "Embed" tab to enter some HTML provided by sites such as Youtube.

Event Linking

The event linking feature allows the association of two or more events from different groups. Perhaps the "30 year olds" group and the "40 year olds" group are both attending the same live band, or perhaps the sailing group and a boaters group are both attending the same boat show. There are countless possibilities for linking events, as long as those Meetup events are occuring at about the same time and are in fact the same "real world" event.

Editing Multiple Meetup Events At The Same Time

Prerequisites:

Once you've found the Meetup event, click on its name, then click on "Event Linking" in the left column. From the "Event Linking" page you can select the rows of the Meetup events you wish to edit by clicking somewhere on each row, avoiding the blue text. Then click .

Linking Existing Meetup Events

Prerequisites:

In order to link existing events, begin by finding one of those Meetup events on the MeetupBoost.com Web site. Once you've found the Meetup event, click on its name, then click on "Event Linking" in the left column.
