  1. Support long term carpool coordination.. like for a school or company

    GroupCarpool seems very tailored to one off events however I'd like to use it to organize long term carpooling for my organzation. Could you add an interface to make that possible?

    • Require confirmation before a passenger can join a car

      Right now anyone can add themselves to any car. The driver is notified, however I'd like to make it so the driver has to approve / confirm the passenger.

      • Printable version of the carpool so I can take it on the go

        After the carpool is created I'd like to print it so I can bring it on the trip with me. A printable list or even an exportable csv would be great

        • Allow organizers to login to manage all of their carpools in one place

          As an organizer I create many carpools but and I'd like to have one central dashboard to manage all the different carpools that I've created. Can you allow logins so I can have that central, easy access dashboard?

            I get so many emails, I want to be able to get a daily update or possible disable it completely. Is that possible?

                • Carpools with past dates automatically drop off after the date has passed.

                  To accomodate ongoing carpools. Otherwise, full cars fall to the bottom and get lost when users are trying to create a weekly (or daily) schedule. Can be confusing for multiple users.

                  • Pick up and drop off destination map

                    How about a map showing the exact drop off and pick up locations?

                    • Tighter security

                      Passengers should only be allowed to remove/add themselves from the carpool. They should not be able to remove the driver.

                        • Start/end locations and location grouping

                          Sometimes what's more important than the address of the driver is their departing/returning location. Many people try to drive from work for a trip, but go back home after their trip is over. As for riders, some may be able to leave right from school, but require a ride home.

                          Along with this would be an ability for a driver to specify how far from their starting location they're willing to travel to pick people up. Riders with starting locations within that area are assigned to that driver. If a rider has no drivers in the area, the nearest driver…

                          • allow customization of URL

                            I belong to a community organization that is organizing a ride share program to our local community college. It would be great if the URL were customizable so we could add our organization name (versus the random link.) Great site though and appreciate how easy it is to use.

                              • Administrator/Privacy Settings

                                Have only the administrator(s) be able to edit all contents. The user joining a car should only be able to edit his/her changes.

                                Also, have the option of hiding personal information such as name, phone numbers, and email. This can be done by letting only administrators/driver look at the details of certain car and its joined members.

                                    • Repeating events with different drivers and passengers

                                      As a mom, I am trying to get my kid to softball twice a week, wind ensemble rehearsal once a week, GT club every other week. I want to set up a carpool that different parents and kids can join. For example, I'll drive Suzanna, Stella and Ruby this Thursday, but we need another parent to drive next week and ruby won't be joining, so there is an opportunity for Mles to join. Or next week the mom has a minivan, so she can take six kids.

                                      I just don't want to have to create and manage a trip for…

                                      • Multiple Signup Sheets Grouping

                                        I'd like to have multiple days / carpool sign up sheets all lumped together so I can gather all of them in one location. Maybe you can put them in tabs?

                                        • Everyone's email (and possibly even phone number) should not be publicly visible to anyone in the world with a link.

                                          That information should be given only via email to all those attending, or a simple password entry on the page should be there to enable seeing that information. This is a major privacy / spam control concern.
