  2. Provide Circle Information: In the next screen, you will be prompted to fill in the following details:

           a. Circle Name: Enter a name for your Circle. This should be a clear and descriptive name that helps members understand the purpose of the Circle (e.g., "Programming Club - Fall Semester")

          b. Description: Provide a brief description of the Circle. This description should highlight what members can expect within the Circle, such as event planning, announcements, and discussions

           c. Save Your Changes: After entering the Circle name and description, save your changes - your Circle is now created!

Step 4: Invite Members

To make your Circle active and engaging, you'll need to invite members. Hangtight provides multiple options for inviting members:

  2. Invite with QR Code: Display the Circle's QR code, and members can scan it to join
  3. Invite via Text: Send out invitations directly to members via text. If a user hasn't signed up for Hangtight, they will still receive text invites. Once they create an account, they will automatically be added to the Circle
Step 5: Plan Your First Event

With your Circle created and members invited, you can now start planning your first event. Hangtight offers an advanced AI feature called Flashparse for event planning, making it easy to organize and coordinate activities. Ensure that members link their calendars to have upcoming events seamlessly integrated into their schedules.
