It happens to all of us. We get those group texts or emails to large groups of people. Everyone the sender thinks might need the information is included. After you read it, though, you realize it doesn’t really pertain to you.
You try to move on with your day, but every couple of minutes, your phone buzzes or beeps or makes a cute little noise signifying another text has arrived. It happens again, and again, and again. Each time a text comes, you tell yourself you don’t have to read it. it’s just another reply to something that didn’t interest you in the first place. But what if it’s not? What if it’s something important, or a new text all together? So you check it, and it’s someone in the group saying “Ok.”
It happens with email, too. You are copied on an email because you are on a master list, and the “reply all” button is being overused. If there is anything important in the string of replies, you can’t find it no matter how far you scroll.
If you use these forms of communication with your team, you are running the risk of players ignoring emails and texts they think might just be another one that doesn’t apply to them.
DRIVN’s chat feature helps you focus your communication into subgroups. You can communicate with position groups and not the rest of the team. You can have a group discussion with your staff, or your captains, your reserves, or your seniors, or just one or two players.
The chat feature allows you to combine different groups, make customized lists and focus your communication. The flexibility of DRIVN gives you the ability to connect with endless combinations of groups and subgroups.
Chat also gives your team leaders an efficient and secure platform to communicate with the team or subgroups of the team with or without including you on the message.
Small subgroups are ideal for involving specific players, accomplishing specific tasks, and creating a safer space for sharing. By breaking down the size of the group, you are encouraging discussion on a specific subject between targeted team members.
