FAQs

We’ve made it easy to get started with just three steps:

  1. Answer a few questions on behalf of your loved one or yourself.
  2. The answers you provide will give Savo the information it needs to automatically schedule tasks in a custom view. You can easily update the calendar and add additional information as needed. 
  3. Invite family and friends via email, social media or sending the special link to volunteer for tasks and help out the family.
Okay, I’m ready to get started.  

Anyone can use Savo, whether you’ve lost a loved one, are caring for someone, or have recently experienced a diagnosis. A village can be set up for yourself or someone else. 

Click here then answer the questions as best as possible. You’ll then be prompted to create an account.

Once you’ve set up an account, click on the Invitations tab at the top center of the calendar page (see image below). 

Once on the Invitations tab, you will have the choice to:

1. Click copy at the bottom of the page to copy a prewritten message that you can paste into an email and invite friends and family.

2. Click on Social media on the left side of the page then choose to share on Facebook and/or Twitter by clicking the respective buttons.

3. Click on Link on the left side of the page, click the Copy button to copy the link to the village you just created then share that link any way you choose – text, email, Facebook messenger, etc. 

You can invite as many people as you’d like to join the village you create.
