SimplyCircle (formerly SchoolCircle) offers teachers, principals, PTA leaders, scout leaders and others a free, safe and simple way to communicate with their group. Group leaders can send updates, create events and tasks, request volunteer signups, and share documents and photos. And group members can engage socially, both with group leaders and with each other. All communication stays private to the members of the group, and only group leaders can see the contact information of the group members. SimplyCircle saves you time: You only need to create an event or a task once, and all reminders will happen automatically. SimplyCircle drives higher engagement: Your group members can sign up to volunteer, or share photos with other group members, right from their phone. As a group leader, you have complete control over who is in your circle, and what content is posted to your circle. As a group member, you see all of the communication from all of your circles consolidated into a single convenient and private dashboard, which you can access from anywhere, on any device. The web and the app are always kept in sync – any updates on one immediately show up on the other.
SimplyCircle helps streamline communications for all types of groups, including classrooms, schools, PTAs, scout groups, sports teams, faith groups, professional communities, clubs, and informal groups of family and friends. Unlike other group communication platforms, SimplyCircle combines the broad reach of an email distribution list with the deep engagement of a private social network.
COMMUNICATE EFFECTIVELY WITH YOUR GROUP. SimplyCircle makes it simple to handle all your group communication in one system. It’s easy to send out updates, events, tasks, and photos to all the members in your private circle. Everyone can respond to content online or from the mobile app, and all new posts are summarized daily. This way, you can engage all your members – and avoid another “reply all” email fiasco.
NEVER FORGET ANOTHER EVENT. It’s easy to create events and tasks in SimplyCircle, and your entire group will get notified. Then, they will receive automated reminders about everything happening that week on Sunday morning, plus one final reminder the day of the event. Group members can also import any SimplyCircle event or task into their personal calendar with one click of a button. It’s never been easier for your group members to stay on top of events and deadlines!
ENABLE ONE-ON-ONE CONVERSATIONS. With SimplyCircle, your members can engage in one-on-one conversations with other group members, without needing to access their private contact information. For group members who don’t know each other well, that’s much easier than looking up an email address in a school directory or a club roster. Group members can message each other privately right from the app, and be instantly notified when they get a new message. If the recipient of their message does not have the SimplyCircle app, he or she will receive an email – so no communications ever get lost.
INTEGRATED VOLUNTEER SIGNUPS. Simple volunteer features are included right in the SimplyCircle platform, so you don’t have to manage your group communications across multiple different services. Group members can sign up to volunteer with one click of a button, right from their phone.
BEST OF ALL, IT’S FREE AND EASY! It takes less than a minute to invite your group members to your free private circle. On the app, you can easily invite people from the address book on your phone. On the web, you have additional invitation options such as entering a list of email addresses or uploading a CSV file.
