What’s New: Custom Branded Email Notifications

Customize email notifications to match your campus branding

Branding is one of the greatest capabilities of CampusGroups.  Creating custom emails and notifications for your group helps to connect with your members and cultivate brand visibility.

Now you can customize the look of all notification emails sent from your account by using your own school-dedicated notification template.  For example, you can add a custom header and incorporate custom links in the footer to generate a cohesive, branded look to match your community and school.

Set Custom Privacy Settings for All Your Students

Managing students' privacy just got easier

Student privacy is of the utmost importance to us and to all of our campus partners.  To help school’s manage confidential information, we’ve developed a feature to allow administrators to set custom privacy settings for all their students.

Maybe your school would like to hide students’ year of graduation.  It only takes one click.  You decide which fields should be hidden from the student profiles: custom configuration by default.

Select the data you want to share on student profiles

Administrators can customize the fields that are displayed on the student profiles and completely hide any fields they choose in their administration settings under field permissions.  Students can then login, go to settings and manually decide what they wish to include or not from their student profile pages.

What’s New: Online Document Editor

Seamlessly edit files online directly from the platform

Creating and collaborating on documents is a vital part of group communications on campuses. It’s now much easier for student leaders to update Word, PowerPoint and Excel files directly from within CampusGroups.  The online document editor makes editing your files an easy experience.  You no longer need to download, make changes and again upload into the platform.  Your updates will be visible immediately on the website!

Multiple leaders can collaborate from everywhere, instantly

No need to worry about accidentally losing edits, either.  The check-out/check-in system prevents student leaders from creating simultaneous updates from overlapping each other!
