As part of my work on modern, mobile-friendly websites for Toastmasters, I’ve been working on a way of making it easier for members to confirm a role they’ve been nominated for from a smartphone. It’s a one-click process without the need to enter a password. This can also be better on the desktop for people who have trouble keeping their passwords straight (which I think is all of us).
A similar one-click signup feature is included when you email out the agenda to everyone. However, people tend to be more likely to respond to a personal message than a broadcast asking “would anyone like to volunteer.”
As a meeting organizer, you can click “Suggest” instead of “Edit” for any role, add a personal note, and have the role nomination sent to the member by email. If they respond better to mobile text messages than to email, there’s also a trick (shown in the video demo) for sending the link from your phone to theirs.
I cross-posted something about this in the Toastmasters International Official Members group, so if you like this feature give a shout out there. https://www.facebook.com/davidfcarr/videos/525066598812903
