Why use Groups with Masters Programs
You can put everyone in the same group on the same program at the same time. This is great for athletic teams, bootcamp or intake based program where everyone is on the same program at the same time.
One single change to the master program trickles out to everyone.
How to attach a master program to a group
1. Create a master program
Create a specific program that you want all your group members to follow at the same time. Follow the steps in this article to learn how to create a program: What is a Program? How do I build one?
2. Create a group
Create a Group for your Group Training program. Follow the steps in this article to learn how to create a group: How to Build Engaging Groups.
3. Assign Master Program to a Group
After your program and group are created, it's time to assign the program to the group. You can do this from the 3-dot menu in your group.
By clicking on "Subscribe to a Master Program", you will be prompted to attach your program and to select a start date for the program.
PLEASE NOTE: The "Master Program" option syncs up all the start dates for all the members of the group. If a client joins the group after the program has begun they will be starting the program from that moment onwards. (if they join in week 2, they will not be able to see or complete exercises from week 1).
To maintain consistency with the program feature, all master programs begin on a Monday.
4. Attach Your Master Program to the Group
Et voilà! Now everyone in your group will be following the same program at the same time.
You can see that groups that have Master Programs attached now show the linked program.
5. Editing Group Settings
Tap on the 3 dots menu to access the settings of each group.
You can update notifications and choose to auto-post client activity in the group.
As a best practice, keep "Auto-Post" enabled. This way your group members' activity and milestone badges will be shared with the other participants in the group. This is an excellent way to stimulate engagement and to keep motivation sky high.
#TZTIP: Use group motivation strategically! Any message you post in the group can now motivate more people at the same time. Make sure you use mentions to tag people (use @clientname or @everyone) and get their attention. They will get a mobile push notification every time you or other group member mentions them.
This is what an auto-post looks like within the group.
