Altova Group And Gather

The easy-to-use app for organizing events, groups, & gatherings

Finally, you and your friends can find that perfect date, time, and place to gather!
Group & Gather is a free app for iOS, Android, and Windows – but your friends don’t even need the app to participate!

Get Started

With just a few quick taps you can set up an event, allow friends to share their availability, find a location, and even coordinate what to bring.

Manage Friends and Groups

You can choose friends individually to invite to your event, or select a group of friends that you’ve already defined.

To add a new friend to your Group & Gather friends list, just enter his or her email address, or select it from your device contacts.

Propose Dates and Times

As the event organizer, you can select a date and time for your event – or provide a list of available options that guests can vote on.

Manage Locations and Things

It’s easy to either set the location for our event, propose a choice of locations to your group, or leave it open for guests’ input. To propose one or more locations, either enter the address manually, let the app detect your current location, or use a location from a previous Group & Gather event.

You’ll also want to let people know what items are needed for the event and let them select what they’d like to bring, streamlining communication and eliminating the problem of duplicates.

Invite Friends – Whether They Have the App or Not!

Best of all, for those who don’t have the app, Group & Gather can generate emails with special links that allow your friends to respond to all questions from any web browser and their answers are automatically connected to the app. This means your group can use the app - or the emails - and still fully participate in the process.

Let Friends Vote on Some or All Options

Every option can be set by you as the organizer or put out to a vote. Once guests vote, you can see which options work best for the group.

You’ll see everyone’s selections in Group & Gather, and the app will even tell you which options got the most votes.

Group & Gather solves the problem of trying to figure out your friend’s schedules from an endless stream of emails and texts. Other apps solve some of the problems, but Group & Gather solves all these problems in the same app.

Advanced Features

Group & Gather includes several additional advanced features for managing more formal groups and for dealing with repeating events:

  • Groups can have multiple administrators and all group administrators can add/delete members from the group and create new events for the group
  • New events can be created based on existing events – this is ideal, if you have a repeating event, for example a monthly wine dinner
  • Calendar integration: once a date and time have been agreed upon, Group & Gather automatically attaches an .ics calendar entry to all emails sent to participants, so that they can easily add the event to their electronic calendar of choice
