Hoop.la's robust feature set makes it a game changer!

2019-05-03

Hoop.la has definitely given us the opportunity to create a very exclusive community for our members. I will admit that the RightStart process was not as intuitive as I'd hoped, and it's more of a "learn as you go" type of experience, but we're super excited with what we're going to be able to accomplish!

Pros

The robust set of features and customization is incredibly attractive. The sky is the limit when it comes to creating an environment exactly how you envisioned it.

Cons

It's critical that you have a staff of Dev and Design cohorts working on this project - the functionality of Hoop.la on its own is not enough.

Finally, a platform designed for scale!

2020-06-15

It solved a huge visibility issue and we've been able to increase engagement for online events significantly. It has created a much higher awareness of our work and what we have to offer.

Pros

It is really an excellent communication, collaboration, and marketing platform that enables us to grow and reach our audience seamlessly.

Cons

I do wish I could cross post between subgroups and the main page.

Hoop.la makes it so easy!

2015-01-29

The demonstration of Hoop.la was the third we completed.

Pros

Easy to use once you get over a short learning curve.

Cons

User documentation could be better, especially in the area of registration and enrollment and theme creation.

Hoop.la ROCKS our Community

2015-02-04

We are just beginning to scratch the surface of Hoop.la's capabilities and look forward to offering more online chats and further customization to suit our community's needs.

Pros

Great support staff LOTS of customization available Intuitive for our end users to set up and use their accounts Flexible and scalable

Cons

Required a bit more tutorial in the beginning than I expected (that may be an end-user Con, not a Hoop.la Con!)

A lot of "hoopla" about Hoop.la!

2015-11-25

I have never had a problem they could not solve, or show me how to solve myself via an admin feature I didn't know about.
