What is M2 Operating System (M2OS)?
The GSCSNJ Product Program team is excited to announce M2 Media Group as the new magazine vendor and host of the operating system (M2OS). M2OS is mobile-optimized, so you can create custom avatars, send emails, etc., on your tablet or smartphone!
Plenty of training opportunities will be provided for M2OS. Many of the features troops and parents were accustomed to in UNIFY are also part of M2OS. Participating Girl Scouts and volunteers can create their own Avatar using the new M2OS! Both girls and volunteers can earn a personalized patch featuring their Avatar with a choice of two different background designs.
GSCSNJ will continue to work with Ashdon Farms and offer their delicious nuts and chocolate products including NEW Peanut Butter Trail Mix and NEW collectible Brownie Girl Scout Vintage Uniform tin!
Troop Leaders / Volunteers:
Volunteers will receive an email invitation from M2 that explains how to access the site and get started. If you have not received your email invitation to access M2OS site by 09/21/2020, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
On September 21, you will receive an email invitation to access the new M2OS system for your volunteer role. You'll log in, watch the short video that takes you on a virtual tour of the new site, and create your avatar. While you are touring the website, you will also:
- Meet the 2020 Fall Product Program Mascot
- Learn about the Cookie Crossover Patch
- See the new products being offered this year!
Most importantly, please check out the Parent/Guardian Email Blast option to verify/enter the email addresses of the parents in your troop. On the first day of the program, you will have the option to send out an email blast to the parents/guardians so their Girl Scout can setup her personalized avatar, import or enter her email address contacts, and participate in the online portion of the Fall Product Program.
Girls / Parents:
On October 1, you can go directly to www.gsnutsandmags.com/GSCSNJ to get started. Once set up online, girl can:
- Create an avatar that looks just like them
- Set up their personalized site
- Record a message for their avatar to deliver to family and friends
- And more!
Your Girl Scout will be able to send emails and texts to friends and family inviting them to purchase nuts, candies, and magazines to help her reach her individual goal, which will also help her troop! Customers can even pay with a credit card, and the products will be delivered directly to them from Ashdon Farms. In addition to sending emails, you can share the shopping link on social media too.
By participating, each Girl Scout helps earn funds for her troop and can also earn rewards, including a personalized patch with her name and avatar on it!
