New Feature: Better Waitlists
We’ve heard from people that Manual Waitlists were confusing and lead to members getting unexpected alerts they couldn’t control. So we’ve made them a whole lot better.
As of today, we’ve launched a new feature that simplifies how Waitlists work. Automatic Waitlists will stay the same, but Manual Waitlists will be replaced by the new Notify Me feature.
With Notify Me, we’re getting rid of the guesswork and simplifying Waitlists.
Notify Me lets interested members receive alerts when slots open up. Your members will never miss their opportunity to RSVP to a full Meetup again.
Organizers can now choose to use Waitlists (formerly Automatic Waitlists) or let interested members sign up for notifications on open slots with Notify Me.
Members will never miss out on a chance to RSVP again!

Browse Meetups by category, see what’s happening nearby, and check out suggestions tailored just for you.
Switch over to the Groups tab to discover new Meetup Groups, or catch up with old favorites. You might be surprised by what you find!
New Feature: Get to know members better before you Meetup
People RSVP to Meetups millions of times a month. It may sound cheesy, but members are an important part of what makes Meetups special.
So how do you find out more about who’s attending?
Introductions from member profiles will now appear under members’ names on the attendee list for upcoming Meetups. You can edit your introduction in-line from the attendee list, and customize it for each of your Meetup Groups.
Meetup is all about making connections. Now anyone can scan the list to see if a Meetup is a good fit for them.

New Feature: Meetup feedback just got even more interesting
Millions of people have given their feedback after their Meetups via the post-Meetup survey. Now those reactions will become part of the Meetup’s conversation, so people can reply or “like” it.
This means it’s easier than ever to keep the post-Meetup buzz going. Share your favorite moments, follow up on things, or brainstorm ideas for next time.
You’ll get notified when other members’ feedback is posted so you can jump in. Organizers can delete comments, and members can delete their own comments.
Communities grow stronger when people interact. We look forward to seeing how this helps you keep conversation going!

New feature: Smart reminder emails from super active Meetup Groups
Thousands of incredible Meetup Groups host several Meetups a day. If you are in one of those Meetup Groups, your inbox just got easier to manage.
We are happy to announce that Meetup Group members can now have their Meetup reminder emails rolled up into a daily digest for each of their Meetup Groups. With the new setting, you’ll receive—at most—one reminder per Meetup Group per day.
If you are in a Meetup Group with more than one Meetup scheduled for the same calendar day, you’ll receive a rolled-up email reminder with all of that day’s scheduled Meetups:
You can still choose to receive individual reminders for each Meetup if you’d like, or no reminders at all—though with the new ‘at most once per day’ option, now might be a good time to opt back in.
To adjust your Meetup reminder email settings, head to your Email and Notifications page.
You can get all the details here.
Introducing the ‘Good to see you’ button
Millions of connections are made at Meetups every month, but following up on those connections after the Meetup can be challenging.
Now, you can drop a fellow Meetup attendee a quick ‘Good to see you’ note with the click of a button.
Here’s how it works. After a Meetup ends, you’re invited to give the Organizer feedback on the ‘Rate this Meetup’ page. Directly below this, you’ll see the faces of fellow attendees.
Of course a follow-up email can’t hold a candle to the power of face-to-face interaction, but it sure is a nice thing to do. And now it’s a lot easier for all of the people who do this every day.
New feature: Better conversations before & after the Meetup
Meetup comments are now threaded, making it better to get the conversation started — and keep the conversation going!
- Post questions and get answers. What is everyone bringing to the BBQ?
- Share tips and make suggestions for the Meetup. I know a shortcut to the best parking!
- Get to know fellow members. Who is training for the marathon this fall?
- And tap into their knowledge! What’s everyone’s favorite book about this?
