When you are having troubles with managing a large group of people you can use the Invity robot.
The Danish Wave news site called “BølgenDK” which we talked about a little while ago is currently on a subscriber list of 500. Using this manually can be a rather difficult job. I was working on a robot to help with the project, but found this robot and it seems to cover the basics of managing lists more user-friendly.
The robot is really easy to use.
- Just add email@example.com to the Wave where all the participants are in
- Select create new Group
- Create you new group and add firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be able
This is demonstrated in the video that I have created.
What I like about the robot is the connection to the with the gadget. The guys behind the gadget has spent some time on describing how the gadget/robot interacted. It seems really simple to make this work. It seems like the robot can see data from inside the gadget.
The only thing which is a bit irritating, is that the gadget is reloading when you press one of the buttons. That is the only thing which does not work optimal.
This robot can also be used to have conversation within your company, where you want to have the same people in the wave every time.
