Posting In A Padoq

Posting in your Padoq is quick and simple. Choose whether you’re posting as an admin or member, select the type of post, and wait for the response. It really is that easy. Here’s how to get the most out of Padoq’ posting functions. 

Posting In A Padoq As An Admin Or Member

First things first, you’ll need to decide whether you’re posting as an admin or member. This will depend on the type of post and what you want to get out of it. So if you’re looking to sell merchandise, it’s best to post as an admin for a more professional, trusted approach. Before you go ahead and publish your post, check out our tips on Padoq payments.  

On the other hand, if you’re just wanting to start a conversation with other members or throw a quick poll, posting as yourself is perfectly fine. 

Basic Posts

Basic posts consist of text with the option to add images, videos, and GIFs. A step-by-step guide:

Event Posts (Admin Only)

Event posts allow admins to invite members to an event without any stress. This event is added to the in-Padoq calendar and members can either select ‘Going’ or decline the event. Here’s how to get the news around:  

  •  Go to the post creation screen 
  •  Select ‘Add to post’ and then ‘Plan Event’
  •  Add a title, description, location and date for the event
  • Toggle ‘All Day Event’ to show event is taking place all day or at a specific time. When toggled off you are prompted to add a start and finish time.
  • Toggle ‘Send to Everyone’ to choose if you want to invite everyone in the padoq or a subsection instead. When toggled off, a ‘Recipient List’ section appears, where you can select which members you wish to invite to the event. 
  • Add a number to the ‘Attendees Cap’ section to limit the number of places available.
  • Toggle ‘Allow Additional Guests’ to give members the option to bring people with them to the event. When accepting the event, they will be asked how many they intend to bring.
  •  Toggle ‘Hide Guest List’ to allow/disallow members to see which other members have selected ‘Going’ to the event.
  • Toggle ‘Paid Event’ to add a price for a ticket to the event (Only available to the Padoq treasurer). When toggled on, sections to change the price and currency show up.
  • Toggle ‘Add Required Information’ to add/remove required fields. Required fields allow you to collect the information needed to facilitate the event.

Payment Posts (Admin Only)                       

Payment posts allow admins to request members to pay for group related activities. Members can either accept or decline the request.

Each Padoq is nominated a ‘Treasurer’. The treasurer is the recipient of all confirmed payments that happen from a payment request (or paid event) and funds are transferred into the treasurer’s personal wallet. Transactions that are to be refunded are also managed by the treasurer.

To Create a Payment Post

  •  Go to the post creation screen 
  •  Select ‘Add to post’ and then the card icon
  •  Add a title, description, currency and amount you want members to pay.
  •  Toggle ‘Send to Everyone’ to choose if you want to ask everyone in the Padoq to pay or just a subsection instead. When toggled off, a ‘Recipient List’ section appears, where you can select which members you wish to request a payment from.
  • Toggle ‘Add Required Information’ to add/remove required fields. Required fields are questions you can ask participants to answer. (Responses are visible to the treasurer of the Padoq and can be seen in the ‘Requests’ section of the Padoq Wallet.)
