(During a group project)
*LOG: Translation here
The LOG: …. No …. You were supposed to post it on [insert social media site here] but I never saw it!
The LOG: I checked yesterday but nothing was there!
The LOG: …
Me: *sigh* I wish there was a way to keep important files in a place where we can all find it. Separate from our regular conversational posts but still on the same website that we use to organize these irritating group projects.

I discovered ArcZap.
With ArcZap, none of your important posts will get lost if you pin them to your virtual corkboard. If you create the group, you are the only one who can delete things pinned to the board. This way, your group members won’t have an excuse for not seeing your important documents. They can download them, edit, and re-upload them. Pretty sweet deal, right?
Here’s how to create a group on our newest version of ArcZap:
Go to arczap.com
Create an account
Sign up with one click by using Facebook or create an account with just one form.
After this, you will be directed towards your homepage.
On the left side bar, click on “Create a group”
Fill out the blank spaces to make your group unique. Is there a random nickname that your group likes to go by?
Why not make it fun and use it?
Don’t forget to invite your group members! This way, they will start getting private email notifications from you. A free email alias is also provided to keep your group connected.
Drag or upload all of your group’s important documents to your own private virtual corkboard.
Make an announcement to your group to remind them to review those documents
Create an event for your next meeting in order to give them a deadline to review the materials
It will show up here!
Don’t forget to set a reminder for them just in case they RSVP and forget (which both of us know, is highly likely)
You are all done! Easy and effective.
Take it from someone who has gone through numerous group projects. Don’t let your group projects fail due to group members not knowing how to work effectively. If there is a way to fix it, why not use it?
