        Organize group activities and events

        Seamless integration

        While creating new events, the user can see upcoming events that are scheduled for that specific group, as well as scroll ahead by month or year. Past events can be left on the calendar or users can delete them. This helps keep your group on track without double-booking.

        Promote events network-wide

        This is not simply a calendar, but it offers event planning capabilities and the option to promote events on the front page of the social network using the Single Group Event widget. Non-group members can see the events scheduled and may elect to become linked up with the group simply because they are interested in the promoted event.
