I just signed up our 75th group on AcaSpot; it looks like some of you are spreading the word to other groups, thanks! Also a huge thanks to everyone so far for your comments and ideas. Hopefully lots of groups will benefit from your suggestions. My next few weeks will be spent adding features and launching a new design and color scheme. I’d like some input on what new features you–the AcaSpot users–really want, so I’ve listed some ideas below. Let me know in the comments which are most interesting to you.
Google Calendar integration: view your group’s calendar when you sign-in(done)
- Better set list builder: add starting pitch/key, make set lists printable, and add drag & drop re-ordering of songs
- Notifications: configurable email or RSS alerts for new arrangement postings, auditionee sign-ups
- Configurable group email lists: firstname.lastname@example.org forwards to your whole group or just owners, so you don’t have to manage a separate list when you get new members or members graduate
- A cappella shows in your area: events searchable directly on the site, add your own event to publicize, upcoming events listed on your homepage
Any other ideas? Let me know in the comments.
