By Rahul Sarkar
Introducing Zumba classes within your community? Maybe you’d like to announce and spread the word. But, how?… Print handouts?… That’s a lot of paper and definitely a lot more to manage.
With ‘Communications’ as a fresh feature on MyGate, you can now broadcast community updates and always keep the residents aware of what’s coming. Not only this, the feature allows you to create polls and send meeting invites, while the residents can initiate and participate in need-based, in-app discussions.
The ‘Communications’ feature lets you to be in-sync with the latest. It offers the flexibility to hide discussions that don’t concern you, without having to worry about missing a critical update that could otherwise go unnoticed in huge chunk of conversations.
What can be done with ‘Communications’ ?

Looking to call for a meeting to plan an event? The ‘Meeting’ feature will help you create an invite just as you would do on iCal or Google Calendar. It allows you to list the meeting description, agenda, venue, date & time, and participating groups for attendees’ convenience.
The ‘Meeting Details’ screen lists the meeting whereabouts such as description, agenda, venue, date and time, and attendees.
