Setting up a Group in CampusGroups

If your department or organization at Bowdoin is interested in learning about the CampusGroups platform, please follow the steps below:

Step 1: Take a short tour of CampusGroups  (13 minutes) to familiarize yourself with its core functionality.

Step 2: Complete a service request form to give us some more details about how you plan to use the platform.

Step 3: You’ll receive a link to a “sandbox” group. You’ll be able to log in and explore the platform without fear of breaking anything. Once you have access to the sandbox, we will ask you to review a series of online tutorials as you explore features. You also have access to help articles in the CampusGroups User Community. ​​​

Step 4: Within a few days of completing the service request, a member of the core team will contact you to discuss details about getting you up and running.
