"SimplyCircle is the answer I've been looking for. This app makes it so easy to communicate with my entire Girl Scout Troop about everything, right in one place! I post our calendars, messages to parents, sign ups for snacks, requests for volunteers and best of all... photos of the stuff we do! Parents find it super-easy to use, and that makes it even better. I am so thankful I found this app, I have already saved tons of time!"

SimplyCircle makes it simple to handle all your scout group communication needs in a single, easy-to-use platform. Just create your private circle, and you can easily send out updates, events, tasks, photos, and documents to all your members.
Everything you share stays private in your circle. Circle members can access all the information on a computer, table, or via free mobile apps. They also get email notifications about all the new content.
It’s like having a private scout website, a mobile app, and an email distribution list – absolutely free. You can have up to 50 members in a free circle, and you can create as many free circles as you want.
When you organize an event or task on SimplyCircle, it goes on your circle calendar.
Parents get automatic email reminders about upcoming events and deadlines. They can also export events to their personal calendars with one click. That means less work and less stress for you – nobody forgets a thing.
You can attach photos or documents to your events and tasks – like a permission slip for a field trip, or instructions for a special project.
We recently added the ability to collect money.
Just make sure that your email address on SimplyCircle matches the email on your PayPal account. The money that you collect will instantly go into your PayPal account.
No more depositing of paper checks. No more trying to remember who paid for what. Everything is right there, in one convenient location.
Whether you need to collect payments for dues, uniforms, supplies, or anything else – you can do it all with a click of a button.
It’s easy to manage your scout group’s volunteer signups with SimplyCircle.
You can mark any event or task as needing volunteers, and your members can sign up to volunteer, or contribute food or items.
When signing up is as easy as a click of a button, many more parents will volunteer. All the reminding is done automatically, so that’s one less thing you have to do.
You can create as many signups as you want if you are on a premium plan, like Pro Silver or Pro Gold. Pro Silver costs just $1.99 per month or $15 per year, and comes with a free 30-day trial.
Another useful feature that comes with our premium plans, Pro Silver or Pro Gold, is event RSVPs. You can ask members to RSVP just for themselves, or to specify number of adults and children attending.
With event RSVPs, you never have to wonder how much food to prepare for your party, or how many people will attend your community service event.
And of course all the reminders are automatic, so that everybody actually shows up to your event.
For more private conversations, your members can use SimplyCircle to send messages to each other. Why waste time looking up someone’s email address, when you can message them quickly right inside SimplyCircle.
Create your free, secure account in seconds. Then invite members to join your circle.
We give you lots of different invitation options.
You can copy and paste their email addresses, import their contact information from your Yahoo or Google contact book, or upload a .csv file that contains their email addresses. And if you don’t know everybody’s emails, you can just share the circle invite code with them, and they can join your circle on their own.
Most scout troops choose the Pro Silver plan, which lets you have up to 100 members and up to 5 managers. Start your free 30-day Pro Silver trial today, and see how much time SimplyCircle can save you!
