We've designed BigTent around the ideas of simplicity and ease-of-use. Even so, we know it can be hard to adjust to change. To help familiarize you (or your group’s new members) with the site, we've created this quick guide. Click the links to see more information on each topic. Keep in mind, not all groups will have all the below features enabled.
When you sign in to BigTent, you'll see a link for "My BigTent." Click here to update your information in the Settings area or to view your profile.
To access your groups, roll your mouse over the "my groups" link and click on one of your groups. Once in your group, you'll see tabs for all the different features. Read on to learn about the different features your group may have to offer.
Participate in Group Forum Discussions
Start a forum discussion by clicking "Start a topic" on the forums page.
Your group may have one or more subgroups - smaller affinity groups as formal as a board of directors or as informal as a playgroup for kids aged 2-3. View the subgroups tab to see what subgroups your group offers.
