More Information


We have the problem in our group that the “use participant roles” is not visible?

Hi Saskia!

It has not been enabled by default in every group, but it can definitely be enabled in your group if you wish! Which one is that?

Hi Bruno!
Ok I didn’t know. I’m part of Foodsaving Leuven

Thank you!

Would you like to enable it in Foodsaving Leuven? @nicksellen or @tiltec can do it

Hey there!

Our group would really love to try this new feature. Our creative minds have already been switched on!

I am from a group in Arnhem, Netherlands. Can I bother @nicksellen or @tiltec with this?

Hope it’s helpful for you, and please share any feedback on how you find it, we’re always happy to hear!

Hi! Thank you!
Yes, the other new features would also be great. We are currently discussing how we can use them :slight_smile:
