Allow to send push notifications to the members app.
Allow admins to send notifications with some important information to member app users.
We consider this as one of candidates for the next year.
This would be a clincher in us switching to Wild Apricot. It would be good to be able to notify all those going to an event and also all members by category.
We are very interested in this feature too as we need to keep registrants to events informed of last minute changes as Covid guidelines are updated on a daily basis. Most members do not read their email on a daily basis.

Hi This is something our members really value. Many people in this day and age prioritise communication via their mobile phone and do not always open emails. Instead they rely on push notifications from their social media platforms, messaging apps etc. Please prioritise this feature for development.
Please add push notifications! Less expensive options include this service.
Any word on this feature?
Beverly Ehlbeck commented
Is there any chance of this feature being available in 2019? We are looking at implementing wild apricot and that was one of the inquiries /feature requests from our members.
Shaun Boot commented
Is this something that is in the works? We are very interested in this improvement.

This would be incredibly helpful to quickly inform event participants about schedule updates or other information. Without such a feature the member app is basically useless for us...
Rob Atkinson commented
This would be the perfect solution to our communication issues.
At present we do a certain amount of communication via WhatsApp, but keeping the contact list unto date is almost impossible.
A messaging function that can provide a mobile forum for messages, with the option for members to opt in/out of specific groups would be the ideal solution.
please of this. or we will need to use other membership website.

An alternative would be to have SMS integration into the product to create SMS message campaigns from a cell phone field.
We don't have it on our roadmap currently.

This would be great to have this feature added to the admin/mobile app. Is this something that is being looked into currently?
This would be a great feature especially when you're running outdoor events or functions that are subject to be cancelled or changed last minute. Having event-specific push notifications would save so much time and participants would be happy since they won't need to check their emails for updates, they can just look at their phone.
Other ideas around push notifications to consider:
Ability to send push notifications to registered event participants
Ability to send to different member levels or groups
Ability to schedule a push notification for a later date
Allow push notifications to have images and links.
Push notifications to members that are in a specific geographical region
Absolutely! Reminders of events in which they've registered or rsvpd / agm/ membership renewals etc. Yes please!!!
