The Brain Behind GroundControl
GroundControl started with a small project to connect 150 managers through an app. Being an avid app developer, the founder of GroundControl, Joost Lubach, took up the challenge and created a medium that could be used by each one of them. The first step was not easy because there was no automation. That summit was successful, however. And that's when the evolution of GroundControl started.
When Joost realized something was missing in the app regarding automation, he partnered with another co-founder Jelle Ages. Together they developed a way to make the app work automatically. Later, Laurens from Hague and Leon from Budapest also partnered with them, and the result is – GroundControl, which helps thousands of people to connect effortlessly.
How Does GroundControl Work?
According to the co-founder, GroundControl is an interactive environment where all the participants of an event or an organization can be given specific tasks, challenges, and a lot more. Do you work with events, learning programs or other kinds of social experiences? Are you tired of being part of the machine that makes it all happen?
GroundControl is for you.
You're a Jedi Master of events. A Yoda of learning to program. A Luke Skywalker of social gatherings. But the Force isn'talways strong with you when organizing them. What if there was a way to automate yourevents, learning programs, or social experiences? What if you could create the min a few clicks and then spend all that time you save on creating even moreincredible experiences?
GroundControl lets you do just that.
Triggers are things that cause an action. An example is when someone fills in some data on your website or leaves feedback on an event they attended. The trigger could be that somebody answers "yes" to a particular question on a form.
Actions are things that happen when the trigger occurs. An example of this is sending an email to someone or deleting an item from your database. What you do with the information you get from your user is up to you.
How about having your business branding? Yes! GroundControl offers that too!
The mother of all to-do lists
Have you ever struggled with a to-do list? Is something always forgotten or added at the last minute? Do you send reminders, yet people forget to check their mail? Are you trying to organize events andlearning programs and find it hard to coordinate the different parts and people involved? Well, struggle no more.
GroundControl lets you create a graphical layout of your event or program by dragging and dropping elements. Add reminders that are sent automatically. Connect elements so that a change in one element leads to an automatic change in another element (and you don't need any programming skills for this). And then sit back and relax while GroundControl takes care of everything else.
The world runs on software, and the software runs on code, and programmers write the code. But in our version of the world, we believe NoCode is the way forward and GroundControl allows the same.
GroundControl is a tool for creating social experiences (like events) where the participants can interact with each other and the environment in a completely unpredictable way.
You can think of GroundControl as a social operating system: it lets you create your own virtual world, set up triggers and actions, and connect them with each other to start an experience that every participant will enjoy.
With GroundControl, you don't need a Ph.D. in computer science to make better bots. You just point and click your way to higher conversions and greater engagement.
GroundControl is also a LowCode chatbot that offers Advanced targeting. GroundControl allows you to create engaging and automating conversational experiences for your website without the need for coding knowledge. Customize the experience for each visitor by creating rules and conditions that deliver different responses based on their specific needs. With advanced analytics, you will have visibility into how visitors engage with your chatbot.
After all, GroundControl is no run-of-the-mill bot. We offer advanced targeting for your messaging and campaigns so that you can send messages to the right people at the right time.

What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
