Community Groups: How Locale can help you create communities

26 January 2024

The Locale Community Groups module is designed to help building managers and teams foster great community interactions and engagement through social groups. Create hubs and encourage occupiers to have meaningful discussions with handy moderation tools.

Locale creates communities

At Locale, we’re obsessed with the occupier experience and creating connected communities which can all be achieved with top five benefits of the Groups module:

  1. Better understand your occupier needs. By creating your own community groups, from cycling groups to book clubs, you don’t have to rely on occupiers using other external platforms to form micro communities that exclude the activities already happening in your building. With the Community Groups module, building managers can have greater visibility on which communities are in need, what occupiers want the most, understand any particular pain points and therefore act quickly to refine occupier engagement.


  1. You have full approval rights. When an occupier creates their own group, it’s up to the building management team to review and approve it before it is published. This way, by seeing how many different groups are being created, you can gauge how big or small your occupier community is. Plus, by having full visibility, you can protect your occupiers by ensuring all comments are respectful and helpful.


  1. Easily integrate with other Locale modules. If you or an occupier makes a post using the Community Groups module, this is great for putting the Announcements module into action to notify members. This module allows you to send messages to your building, portfolio or to a specific company or user role. This way, your occupiers only see news and information relevant to them and receive real-time email and push notifications. Or, have your FAQs in a highly accessible place to direct your occupiers towards any answers they’re searching for.


  1. Improve your communication with occupiers. With community groups, you can keep your occupiers updated on activities happening both inside and outside of your building. For example, if you have a general occupiers’ group, you can utilise the Offers & Promotions module to promote discounts available in locale stores.


  1. Available on both web and app. For anytime access, the Community Groups module is available on desktop and mobile which is great for occupiers to use to check on regular updates or for building managers to edit groups remotely.
