JayPad is a free online group planning website with various useful features like polls, chat, etc. Using this website, you will be able to easily plan anything like holidays, meetings, night outs, weekend trips, parties, and more by brainstorming with your group. For this, you can simply create a pad and then invite your group members to the pad. Once they join, you can start brainstorming and plan any event with the help of polls to select the date and additional polls to decide other event information like the venue, dress code, etc. Not only that, it even offers a “Discussion” panel where you will be able to chat with your group members in order to discuss and finalize the event.
Similar to other brainstorming websites like Nuclino, Stormboard, etc., JayPad is also a simple solution for group planning by collaborating and brainstorming with your group members. Another interesting feature of this group planning website is that you can collaboratively add notes on the pad for highlighting additional information about your event plan.
Using JayPad for Group Planning with Polls, Chat, etc.
Once the pad opens up, you can start inviting your group members to the pad. To do this, simply click on the “Invite Others” button at the top and then share the unique invitation URL with others. Your group members can simply click on the shared link and enter their name to join the pad or group planning session.
Now, let us take an example to understand how JayPad works for group planning. Suppose, you want to plan an office meeting with your group members. Then the first thing you would need to do is create a poll for selecting a meeting date with a mutual decision. For this, simply click on the “Find a Date” option at the top of the pad and then choose multiple dates to create the date poll.
As soon as you do that, all your group members will see a poll with different dates. Now, they can choose any date they want for the meeting by simply voting on the poll. This will help you decide on which date all the group members will be available for the meeting and when to conduct the meeting.
Let’s say, you have finalized a meeting date then you can proceed with creating addition polls for other meeting information like in which venue you should conduct the meeting, what should be the dress code, and so on. To create an additional poll, simply click on the “Poll” option at the top of the pad. After that, you can enter a poll title and add options from which your group member will be able to select a single response or multiple responses.
If you think that you should mention some other important details about the meeting, then you can also add notes on the pad. To add a note, simply hit the “Note” option at the top of the pad and start typing anything you want. The notes will be visible to all your group members and they can also type anything they want on the notes.
Now, comes one of the best features of JayPad, the “Discussion” panel which is available on the right of the pad. Using the “Discussion” panel you will be able to chat with all your group members. This can come handy in case you want to discuss the event and get a mutual decision from all the group members. Apart from that, the panel also shows all the activities done by you and your group members on the pad.
My Final Verdict:
JayPad is a pretty simple and useful group planning website to plan events collaboratively with group members. The events can be planned with ease using polls. Apart from that, it also lets you chat with your group members in order to make planning events easier for you. Go ahead and give it a try.
