How To Create An Event In GroupMe

Are you planning an event with your group on GroupMe? Do you want to use the calendar feature to remind everyone about your meetup, meeting, or weekend getaway? If that’s the case, you can create a calendar event on the app. Check our step-by-step guide below, and we’ll teach you how to start an event on GroupMe.


Aside from sending messages and media files to your groups in GroupMe, you can start events with other members of the conversation. In this way, you can plan meetups, meetings, or vacations much easier than sending a message to the chat.

When creating a group event, you can add the dates, location, and other information about your plan. Other chat members can respond to your created event whether they can attend or not.
