Frequently Asked Questions
Why does the network have designations for "friends" or "acquaintances"?
In order to make MESH useful for both social activities and professional activities, we gave our users the ability to keep different types of users separate but still in the same social network. This way, MESH can serve to function as a 2-in-1 for organizing both professional and social events!
How do I add flights, hotels, and other information to my event itinerary?
"My Deck" is where all the reservation information is added and created in MESH. To add a new flight or hotel to MESH, select "My Deck" from the main menu, select the "+" icon in the top right corner, and then select either "Flight" or "Hotel". After that, just input all the information about your reservation, and then select "Link to Event" at the very bottom of your flight information page and pick the event you want the flight or hotel to be a part of!
If your reservation is something other than a flight or hotel, after your select the "+" icon in "My Deck", just select other and enter in the information regarding your reservation. "Other" is perfect for concert tickets, appointments, rental cars, and more!
If my friends don't have MESH yet, can I invite them to download MESH?
Yes you can! Just scroll down to the very bottom of your network list and select "Invite others to your network". After that you can choose to send them a text message or email. You can also invite people directly from the Guest List on the event page.
How do I view the flights and hotels that my friends have reserved for our trip?
Assuming your friends have already uploaded their reservations to MESH and assigned them to the correct event, you should be able to view the entire groups itinerary from inside the "Guest List" on the "Event Page" for your trip. Just select "view event itineraries" at the top of the Guest List page and you will be able to see all the information you want!
How do I add an activity to an event?
(An activity can only be added by an event creator or another host.) Assuming you are one of those things, simply select the "..." in the top right corner of the event page, and then select "Edit Event". From there you can manage your activities; editing existing ones or adding new ones.
How does our group share a payment for our event?
(Again, this is another task that must be performed by the event creator or another host.) Assuming you are one of those things, simply select the "..." in the top right corner of the event page, and then select "Edit Event". From there, go to "Event Contribution" and paste in the URL link for your favorite payment sharing service: PayPal, Tilt, Venmo, etc. Once you do, everyone else from your event will be able to select the "Piggy Bank" icon on the event page and will be taken to whatever payment service you added so that they can sign in and contribute funds for the event.
