If I'm running a small minyan that sometimes has a quorum and sometimes doesn't, and I'd like to only hold the minyan when I know we'll have ten, is there an online tool to help me manage this?

    There used to be an online service available called RoboGabbai. The website no longer works, but you can see the services they provided on the wayback machine: web.archive.org/web/20080706130816/http://www.robogabbai.com – Menachem Jul 27 '12 at 17:31
  • I have this but have never used it, though it does look like it might help you here....announce in advance that you'll put out a call for a minyan at the same time every day, and y'all respond if you're coming. – Shokhet Oct 30 '14 at 4:55

http://www.minyanman.co.za/ is a Minyan management tool.

Minyan Manager is a community service to help people manage business minyanim. We know how useful it is having a mincha minyan at work but how time consuming it is to manage it, as well as how frustrating when people come and yet a minyan is not present. We hope this will reduce the administration and encourage more companies to have a mincha minyan. For more information contact info@minyanman.co.za

    You should give some more details as to how this solves the problem rather than just leaving it as a link. – sabbahillel Oct 2 '17 at 19:44

You might try Google Calendar; this way you can invite folks, and their responses will be shown in the meeting entry for each tefillah. Of course, this assumes that people live up to their responses!

    Often getting those who said they would come to come is a very great challenge. – Ze'ev Felsen Apr 22 '13 at 3:15

You can always create a Facebook page for your Minyan and send out Minyan times on a daily basis to people who voluntarily subscribe, and then ask participants to reply by a certain time if they plan to attend.
