Groupflows
Frequently Asked Questions
Overview
What is Groupflows?
Groupflows is a website and Discord bot that helps you find meeting times for group activities and video chats. You don't have to sign up, pay, or download anything to use it.
Who made Groupflows?
Groupflows was created by Johann Baptista and Willis Mattei, two software developers from California. We built the site ourselves and we're adding new features every day.
Why did you make Groupflows?
We noticed it was very difficult to coordinate meeting times for groups. Our initial goal was to solve this problem so people could meet more often.
In the future we will also eliminate other logistical barriers which prevent people from getting together. We want to make the process of arranging a meetup as easy as browsing the internet.
How does Groupflows make money?
You can subscribe to Groupflows for $5 per month. Subscribers can add images to their events on Discord. They can also see what we're working on, request features, and get priority support on ourDiscord server.
Accounts
Do I need an account to use Groupflows?
No, you don't need an account to use Groupflows. No one you invite needs to sign up or log in either.
Does Groupflows have optional accounts?
Yes, you can create an optional account if you want. You can save groups to your account so you can easily find them later.
You can also password-protect your name so other people in a group can't edit your times. Password-protected names have a lock symbolnext to them in the name dropdown menu.
Discord Bot
What is the Groupflows Discord bot?
The Groupflows Discord bot is an integration that lets you connect a Groupflows group with a Discord server. You can learn more about the bot and download ithere.
Is Groupflows only available for Discord?
No, anyone can use Groupflows. However, we recommend that Discord users download the bot.
Groups
What is a "group"?
A Groupflows "group" is a collection of people who've provided information about times they'd like to meet. This info is stored on a page where members of a group can access it. Every group has its own page.
Who can see a group?
Each group has a unique URL link. Anyone who has this link can access the group page connected to it.
How many people can join a group?
There are no limits on the number of people who can join a group. However, the site may slow down if you visit a very large group with dozens of participants.
Times
Does Groupflows work across time zones?
Yes, Groupflows converts all times into your local time zone. For example, if a person on the U.S. West Coast says they want to meet "after 1 pm" an individual on the East Coast would see "after 4 pm" instead.
What are "before" and "after" times?
"Before" and "after" times let you tell a group that you'll be available at any time before or after a point on a particular day. They will overlap with times which fall between that point and midnight.
For example, if you say you want to meet "after 5:30 pm" and someone else says they want to meet "from 7 pm to 8 pm" on the same day, the times will overlap.
Can everyone in a group see my times?
Yes, anyone in the same group as you can infer the times you've submitted from the info in the group. However, they cannot see the times you have in other groups unless they join those groups as well.
Other
Is there a mobile app for Groupflows?
Not yet, but the website and Discord bot are fully mobile-compatible. We will have an app in the future.
