How to Create a Group
Make sure you are on the “Map” screen of MyDearest.
Click on the drop down menu that is located on the top middle of the “Map” screen” and then select “Create Group”.
Pick a name for the new group and then press “OK”. Once you hit “OK”, the group is automatically created and MyDearest will take you back to the “Map” screen.
Now that the group is created, it is time to invite others to join it. Pull the bottom menu up so that you can see the “Add Your Dearest” and “Send Invitation” options.
Click on “Send Invitation”
Share the group invitation code with others. You can do this by messaging them the invitation code or just showing it to them. Once they have entered the invitation code on their device, they will automatically be added to the group.
About Invitation Codes
The Invitation Codes for joining a group and adding someone as your Dearest look the same, but unlock different features. If you send an invitation code for someone to join a group, they will be added to your contacts and into the group of your choosing. You cannot view their location unless they voluntarily choose to share it with you. If you send an invitation code for someone to become your Dearest, they will be also be added to your contacts and into the group of your choosing. However, you can view their location at anytime and also have access to their Location Report and App Usage Report.
