STEP 3: Invite Members to Your Group

Tell members about HEARD before inviting them. Here's a letter you can edit and share.

Post content before others join, like a welcome post, photo album or upcoming event. This will give others something to engage in when they join the group.

For teachers inviting parents to a class group that is a subgroup of a school group on HEARD: You can search by a child's name to find their parents to invite. Once their parent pops up, select their profile and they'll be added to the invite.

If you don't see a child's name when searching, either their parents have not been invited to the school group or they have not added their child to their profile.

Emails of members invited to join a group on HEARD are automatically opted-in to group communications via email. Any person can opt-out of HEARD communications or adjust their notification preferences via the Settings page. To access the Settings page, click on your name at the top right of web version or on the menu icon at the top left on the mobile iOS app.

Your members will begin receiving email notifications for activity happening in the group once invited.

Encourage your members to update their profiles and adjust their notification settings.  Our online Help Center can help you navigate the platform.
