Try the mp3Car meeting organizer for your next gathering!
Trying to organize a meet in your area? Searching for active meets? Try out the mp3Car meeting organizer whether you are setting up a meet or looking for one to attend.
Written by mp3Car's summer intern Nick (Reno91011), the organizer is a convenient addition to the regular meeting threads posted in the mp3Car Gathering forum.
Why use the meeting organizer? It handles several issues including who is attending/tentative, location of the meet, pre-meeting details, user selectable email notification of changes (useful if the weather is iffy for the day of the meet), post event photo and video archive.
Setting up a Meet
Setting up a meet is simple. Find the location on the Google map, click on "Get Marker's Lat/Lon" and fill in any missing data. If you have created a forum thread for the meet, paste it into the appropriate box. Scroll down and hit "Create Meet". It's that simple.
Who's attending the meet? Who's tentative? Who's girlfriend told them they can't attend? The meeting organizer keeps a running list of the status of members at all times.
Users can indicate their attendance status using this [insert image] page that allows them to also input a short comment ("I'll bring hamburgers!").
Where's the meet?
Allows you to pinpoint on a Google map the location of the meet.
Automatic notification of changes
If the weather is bad, will we still have the meet? Users can register for emails to be sent to them upon changes to attendance, any changes, or choose to receive no emails at all.
Archive details from the meet
Post meet photos and comments can be put into meet threads for archival purposes and video can also be linked. Old meets can be searched for and reviewed.
