    Events, from Facebook

    Find things to do near you

    As a college student myself, I plan private events with friends through Facebook Events. Why because usually everyone has a Facebook, and it helps knowing who is coming or not. Plus posting on the event page allows for updates to be easily shared. It also tells you who has seen the invite. Those who don't I usually just message via text since its usually a small amount. Have you used Events before?

    • Using Zenkit for a few months now and can't see myself going back to my old tool. The team has done a phenominal job of building an application that addresses the need of power users, light users, and everything in between.

    • Edited my review to reflect the awesome response time to problem I encountered. Incredible, hard working team and their app reflects the care and dedication they have put into Zenkit. Keep up the great work, Zenkit!

    Tonkean

    AI powered dashboard with automatic insights from your team

    Hannah White
    Hannah White16Marketing Manager · Written
    Tonkean is a great tool for this! This is how I would suggest setting up your workflow - 1. Add a new List to Tonkean titled '2018 Fall Event' 2. Create Tracks within the list like Attendees, Press, Music, Catering, Decor, etc. 3. Important relevant data (i.e. budgets from an Excel spreadsheet, RSVPs from an event app, etc.) 4. Assign an owner and a due date to each track (Braxton > Attendees > Due September 20) 5. Watch the magic happen Tonkean will monitor the dates, metrics and feedback from your team and have a ready-to-go dashboard for you at all times. Say there was a spike in people who could not attend your event, which was being tracked through that event app mentioned above. Tonkean's AI-powered chatbot would reach out to Braxton and see what the problem is. Then, the bot would publish his input to your dashboard on the 'Attendees' track and update it accordingly (the due date, metrics, whatever is applicable - it's smart enough to know!). As the person managing the event, you have no longer have to chase people down or sit in tiresome meetings to get status updates. It's all ready for you in your dashboard. The bot is even smart enough to know when your team is most likely to respond and provide input.

      As we all know, it’s very rare to find a product that makes you stop and be like “This is awesome. Where has this been all my life!?” I’ve been using Tonkean daily for the the past 6 months, and am addicted. As a product marketing manager I work very cross-functionally and have always struggled with where and how to track and organize all the different things I work on. I’ve tried lots of task management, project management, and collaboration tools, but always ended up back in sticky notes, docs, spreadsheet, and calendar reminders to follow up. Tonkean changed this. While docs and spreadsheets are still useful for somethings of course, I now manage everything in Tonkean — my “worklist” of projects and action items, 1-1s with my boss, cross-functional campaigns, and success of key customers I’m working with. Tonkean allows me to pull in data from all different sources (which used to be manual) so I have a view of the key metrics I care about. It also automatically gathers the status of items at the right time from the relevant owner, and provides visibility of all updates and changes in Slack or via email. Oh! And did I mention it reminds me of things I wrote down but may have forgotten about? I could go on and on, but moral of the story is: get it, play with it, and I promise you’ll love it!

      We have been using Tonkean since before it was in Beta. It has shortened our Weekly Delivery Meetings by providing an easy way to bring in Data from Jira and Salesforce and review instead of transposing data into a new format.

      The ability to integrate into Slack and gather updates where our Delivery Team already is has been a game changer. It keeps everyone from asking status and allows people to just work and provide updates when prompted. If I need an update out of cycle, I can use Tonkean to prompt for it.

      Tonkean has been critical for our team to grow. It has provided insight to our leadership at the right level as needed.

  9. As a startup owner, I constantly attend events and meetings. Eventbrite is a great website to organize or attend events based on my interest. Cons: Would have liked a better navigation based on interests

      I am totally in love with Canva! For me it's the best graphic app I ever work with!

      Simple enough to quickly create pics for Facebook, twitter posts, featured images for my blog and emails. The powerful and full of tools enough to create even an infographic! Guys, you're so awesome, you help me to level up my skills as a content, SMM and PR manager. I don't need to wait for designer. I can create an illustration in 5 min! I work with Canva like 1 year or even more. With free version, but I want to try paid too. Thank you, guys!

    If you're looking to plan events with the same group of people more than once, you might want to give this a try - you can invite everyone to your digital community - you can create events and invite your members, track attendance, send event updates, share files and photos, and more. Does this sound like it could help?
