It’s a Plan!
January 30, 2006
People ask me all the time how Renkoo differs from other invite services, and I always emphasize that our strength is in negotiating where and when to get together with your friends. We make it possible to vote on potential times, make others aware of your constraints (for example, “Hey I can have lunch tomorrow if I get back before 1PM”), suggest venues you like, and just plain chat.
However, there comes a time when negotiating has to end and someone has to say, “OK, so we have a plan”. And now Renkoo can say it for you, with our new feature cleverly called It’s a Plan. When the initiator of a social event decides that the details have been finalized, s/he can click the It’s a Plan box in the lower left-hand corner of the planning pane and “lock” the plan. As a result,
- A notification message goes out with the finalized details (also good as a reminder!).
Participants can then Save to Calendar.
I think that with this feature, we’re now able to follow the complete course of a social negotiation from initial suggestion, to full-on discussion, to putting the finalized details on your calendar. Try it out and let us know!
