Organisations in Trygve

Frequently Asked Questions

Organisations shines a light on local resources that actively support communities.

Here are some answers to questions you may have - you can always Contact Us if you require additional information.

What is an Organisation when it exists in Trygve?

An organisation inside the Trygve environment consists of two components:

1. An organisation profile page (optional)

This is where organisations can present themselves and where a Trygve user can contact them directly. It’s also a way for way for users to discover that an organisation operates in their area. Organisations can choose not to have a visible organisation page, if they prefer.

2. Organisation team members and badges

Verified key members of an organisation will be assigned badges to their profile images. Organisation team members can still be part of groups and collaborate on posts the same way any Trygve user can. When an organisation team member posts or comments in public or in a group, others can see that they are part of a particular organisation.

What is the difference between Trygve groups and Organisations?

Groups in Trygve are designed for collaboration between multiple Trygve users, with the conversations visible to everyone in the group.

Organisations is designed to give organisations a presence via a discoverable zone, profile page and representatives in the community it serves. Any contact between a Trygve user and an organisation is private.

What kinds of organisations are suitable for Organisations in Trygve?

Any group, organisation, unit or institution who engages or intends to engage with the local community in the field of safety or support.

Examples of appropriate organisations in Trygve include local police, victim support units, local council, Neighbourhood Watch groups, local schools, housing estates, shelters, real estate companies, Scout groups, local churches, volunteer patrol groups, etc.

Are unregistered community groups welcome as Organisations in Trygve?

Are political or religious groups allowed to be Organisations in Trygve, too?

Political or religious groups make up part of the community, so we encourage all local organisations to get involved. However the activities within Trygve must be free of political or religious messaging and abide by our Code of Conduct.

How can people find my organisation in Trygve?

Any Trygve user will be able to discover active organisations in their area by tapping on the ‘Organisations’ icon in Trygve. Trygve users will also be able to discover organisations by active users who are representatives of an organisation. These users carry badges around with them on their profile images and organisation is included on their individual profile.

We are a Neighbourhood Watch and we have a great group in Trygve - should we use Organisations, too?

Sure! Groups and Organisations serve different purposes and both are beneficial.

Groups allow multiple users/NHW members to collaborate openly together.

It is recommended you become an organisation in Trygve as well, in order to have an organisational presence in your local community and boost your reach. Key Neighbourhood watch team members will also be assigned a Neighbourhood watch badge on their profiles, which adds credibility to them and integrity to your Watch.

I am a user who is currently representing my organisation as my username. What should I do?

It’s great you’ve been flying the flag for your organisation in Trygve. Now is a great time to consider getting your organisation involved in Organisations and becoming an individual user yourself. You will be able to be a representative of your organisation, meaning you will carry a little verification icon of the organisation around with you in the Trygve environment.

Does maintaining an organisation in Trygve create a high administrative workload?

No. Trygve continually works to make community engagement simple, including the administration of organisations. Once your organisation is set up in Trygve, it will require minimal maintenance. You can customise what type (if any) communication your organisation wants to receive from users. New messages are shown in the app, and any team member within the organisation is able to respond and mark it as ‘completed’.

How do I get a badge on my profile in Trygve?

Only organisation administrators can select who from their organisation will be assigned a badge. These badges are not designed to display membership, but to display official roles within an organisation. For example, all members of NHW should not receive a badge, but a watch coordinator will.

How much does it cost to be an Organisation in Trygve?
