Skip those painful emails with people hitting reply-all by using our Messaging feature.

  • Message the whole group via email
  • Message just the people associated with a specific event via email

  • Participants can reply via email to the organizer as well.
  • A log/record of all messages sent and replies received is accessible to the admin(s) and/or organizer(s).
  • NOTE: This is GREAT way to thank participants after the event as well!





Roster of Members


  • Invite members to join your group using their email and name. The new members can then add their cell phone numbers and skill sets as well.
  • All members can easily see other members’ contact information. Alternatively, if privacy is an issue, a member can choose to make their info private. In this case, only the group admin and group co-admins can see it.
  • Don’t want a roster? No problem. People do not have to create accounts at PlanHero in order to sign up for attendance or volunteering.





Recruit next year’s leaders with ease!


  • After setting everything up this year, next year will be a piece of cake. Your president-elect can simply copy what you did this year and edit as needed. That will be very helpful when you are recruiting next year’s leaders!



So get ahead of the game and organize your PTA, PTO, PTC, or PA now before the rush is on and you feel behind. PlanHero is built for easy and successful group management.
