When you work with fosters, it’s important to maintain regular contact. But juggling multiple communication tools requires a lot of time and effort on your part to ensure that you’re able to follow up with everyone.
If communication is something that your organization struggles with, FosterSpace – our newest module – has your back!
With Fosterspace you can:
- Send and receive texts and emails
- Create calendar invites for your foster pets so your fosters stay updated on important events, like vet checks and meet-and-greets
- Send announcements to specific fosters
And so much more! We’ll talk more about the other features in a separate blog which we’ll deliver straight to your inbox in our coming newsletters so keep an eye out for those!
For now, we’ll show you how you can get started on using Fosterspace to simplify communication with your foster volunteers!
Step 1: Click Fosterspace then Dashboard
Step 2: In the Current Fosters quadrant click Choose Your Phone #
Having a phone number allows you to communicate with your volunteers directly from your Doobert dashboard.
Step 2: Go to the Messages quadrant
Step 3: Click on the plus icon
Step 4: Type in a foster’s name
The system will auto-predict the names as you type.
Step 5: Type in your message
Step 6: Hit Enter to send your message
When your foster replies, their name will show up at the top of your message list and be highlighted with a blue dot.
It will also reflect in the Current Fosters quadrant located on the lower left-hand side.
Once you’ve opened the message, the blue dot disappears.
And the message icon in the Current Fosters quadrant goes back to normal.
Pretty easy, right? It’s just like Facebook messenger but exclusively for your fosters!
