Group messaging is set to transform the property community's conversation
In this article, we’re excited to announce the expected arrival of Group Messages, a new feature that transforms how managers and users are able to implement Spaceflow to communicate with their communities. This feature is available as of October 10th, 2022.
We’ve already released several new articles discussing a number of upgraded features in the new generation of our product: An overview article exploring the full scope of inbound updates, an article covering our updated Newsfeed functionality, allowing for better polling, scheduling and interactivity within your building, a look at Spaceflow's updated vendors system and a post informing about upgraded Ticketing feature.
"Any user will be able to initiate group messages with multiple other people, whether they are other users or managers."
Messaging has always been a core part of Spaceflow. It has allowed groups of two to socialize, plan events, coordinate meetings, and discuss property news since the earliest versions of our platform.
We carefully designed our group messages functionality to be as effective as possible for buildings large and small, but now instead of only offering one-on-one messages, which is great for small-scale interactions but doesn’t do as much for the community as a whole, we are offering full group messaging functionality.
This means that any user is able to initiate group messages with multiple other people, whether they are other users or managers. Want to plan a small group event, but don’t want to use Spaceflow’s full event functionality to do it? This could be a good way. Or perhaps your building is starting an inter-tenant council or networking group. Multi-user messages can allow that, too. You can create a group between users, between space managers and users, and between everyone under the same space with a public profile.
Of course, you can manage the settings further: It's nice to be part of a super dynamic group, but the notifications can be overwhelming... mute the group then! No longer interested in being part of that group? Hide it.
Spaceflow is also bringing social-style user information to our messaging feature. You are able to see the user profile, where you can see hobbies, affinities, and pictures of your chatmates without having to leave the messaging area. This might not matter if you already know your chatmate, but if you’re in a group message with completely new faces, it’ll keep a helpful amount of information at your fingertips at all times.
We’re dedicated to the continual improvement of our application, and group messages are just one of many upgrades coming in the near future. Stay tuned for more!
