HuDDleFish Features

HuDDleFish is more than a CMS or website builder. Sure you can use it to build a collaborative intranet system or a group website, but you can also use it to organize and communicate with your members, manage your databases, create automated workflows, schedule and manage events, publish and distribute information based on the identity of the viewers, recruit volunteers, and a whole lot more.

It's a SIMPLE collaboration environment that allows the members of your organization to work together in an easy, safe, secure and controlled environment.

We have all the features your group will ever need – and you don’t need a Ph.D. in websitology to use them. We give you a list of features at the bottom of the page, but remember... Features don’t tell the whole story. Features are worthless if you can’t figure out how to use them.

Here are the questions you need to ask:
Can you add any feature you want to any page you want?
Can you resize features and drag them wherever you want?
Can you edit them without having to go to some arcane administrative control panel?

These are a few of the things we at HuDDleFish would love to show you. So please… click here, and we’ll set up a live, one-on-one demo of our new technology. We’ll show you anything you want to see and answer all your questions.

Here's a Small Subset of HuDDleFish Features:

Simply use a variable where you would type in any text, and the value of the variable will be displayed on the page. (E.g. “06/25/2018 displays as “June 9, 2019”, “” might display as “John”, and “Features” displays as “Features”).

Admin Tools

Volunteer Management

Volunteer Management

HuDDleFish allows the owners of every group or event to add “sign-up sheets” to their web pages. Users can sign up to attend an event, to volunteer for specific jobs or to bring stuff on a one-time, daily, weekly, every-other-week, or once-a-month (e.g., 4th Sunday of each month) basis. The system automatically sends out emails to remind them of their commitments. If they can’t make it, they can click on the link in the email and the system will even find a replacement.
Member Database

Member Database

Change addresses, phone numbers and other personal information. Assign user types, reset passwords, print mailing labels, send emails, add and delete members… HuDDleFish makes it easy to manage your member database from your own website.
Event Management

Event Management

Click a button, fill in a little information and HuDDleFish creates an event and adds it to all of the calendars registered for the given subgroup. Recurring events, events that only specific groups of people can see, events you don’t want showing up until way in the future… HuDDleFish makes it easy for any leader in your organization to manage their own events.
Worflow Builder

Workflow Builder

Need to register members for a big event? You can use the workflow widget to create a data-responsive sign-up form (or a chain of forms). Want to provide a menu of different price options and charge a user's credit card based on his or her choices? No problem. Want to ask a different set of questions depending on a user's responses to previous questions? Again, no problem. The system can even be used to create complex, multi-step workflows to manage branching processes like applicant admission or bug report state processing. It can trigger events immediately (e.g. update the database and send out various email messages when a button is pressed), or it can wait for a complex set of conditions to be reached (e.g. charge the user's credit card $50 at least one week after the form was submitted but only after they have uploaded a screenshot of their earnings statement).
Groups

Groups

Drag ‘n’ drop a group widget onto your web page, and that’s all it takes to define a new group. You have total control over the group. You can invite members to join or let them sign up themselves. You can allow the public to use the group widget to send emails out to the entire group – or you can limit that privilege to just group members or keep it for yourself.
Visitor Sign-Up

Visitor Sign-Up

Let visitors register their attendance with our simple visitor sign-up page. Your greeters can enter guest information into the page, or you can set up a web kiosk and let visitors register their own attendance. Either way the system will automatically create a profile page for the user and send them a welcome email with a password and a link to your online community.
FAQ Tool

FAQ Tool

We provide FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) and Q&A (Question and Answer) tools to allow people to ask questions online. You can either answer the questions yourself or allow your members to answer the questions. The system will even display the best answers first (based on reader ratings).
Automatic Reminders

Automatic Reminders

Tired of sending reminders to your volunteers? The HuDDleFish event system automatically sends email out to volunteers when they've signed up to do something. If they can't make it, they can click a button and the system automatically finds a replacement for them.

Financial Tools
