How to: Create a group and event in HeyGroup

Updated: Aug 25, 2023

So, you've just downloaded HeyGroup to coordinate your team and social group experiences, but you do not know where to start? Why not try creating a group and event!

Create a Group

By clicking the green plus symbol at the bottom center of HeyGroup's home page, you will be prompted with four options: New Event, New Group, Split Expense, and New Poll. Start by clicking the New Group button from the pop-up.

Next, choose what you want this group to be for from nine different options: Sports, Community, Family, Volunteer, Club, Hobby, Workplace, Student, or Friends. After selecting what your group will be for, click the next button to create a group name and description. After filling in the required information click done!

Add members to the group using your phone contacts or in-app connections.

Congratulations, your group is created!

Create an Event

To create an event for a specific group, tap that specific group from the home page to enter the group. From there, click the purple plus button at the bottom right of the screen to create an event.

Title the event, fill in the start and end time of the event, make the event singular or recurring, and write where the event is occurring. Click the next button at the bottom right of the screen and add a description for your event.

Additionally, you can use the availability manager, attendance limit, or paid event features to customize specifications for your event. The availability manager asks people to reply with their availability to an event from which the event creator will be able to choose attendees from those available. An attendance limit lets you choose a minimum and maximum number of people that can attend an event and the waitlist feature will add group members to an event if a spot becomes available. Making an event paid allows you to specify how much event attendees will owe you for going to this event. Do not let payments slip by you and avoid the awkwardness of asking friends for money with automatic reminders through expense management and tracking.

After clicking the next button, once again at the bottom right side of the screen, you will be prompted to either invite all, or specific members from the group to the event. Congratulations, your event is created– don't forget to sync the event information with your calendar!
