You joined a Spotlunch community and got the email about your first lunch group! What next? You need to plan the lunch. To help you with this, we have a new tool called Spotlunch Planner. Here is how it works.
Once you login to Spotlunch, you will be automatically taken to the planning page for your next lunch. Here you can choose your available dates and cuisine preferences. Select as many choices as you would like.
In the example above, the light blue color indicates selected dates of the user (05/16, 05/18 and 05/19) in the calendar. Cuisine preferences of the user are also shown. On the right side, you can see if other lunch group buddies have made their choices.
Once all members of the group make their selections, the planner will automatically find the earliest date that will work for all. It will also provide a consolidated list of cuisine preferences.
This is how the final planner would look.
Now the lunch date is finalized and cuisine preferences of all members are known. For additional planning like picking a restaurant or car pooling, use the comment box.
