Mobile App Customizations
Similar to gadgets on the web page, allow organizations to control which content appears on their mobile app such as:
- Event List
- Member Directory
- Custom Directories
- An app module built from a specific web WA web page
Given these options, I could build and customize my organization's mobile app to meet out needs. One organization's app may only contain a member directory. Another organization may only want to show events on their app. Someone else might chose to have all options on their app.

Definitely need branding on app we would recommend to membership.
Would be nice to be able to access Store feature from branded app, too.
It would be nice to see our logo for the mobile app instead of the generic Wild Apricot (WA) logo. I understand that WA writes the code but you sell it to us for use with our membership and they'd like to see our organization' logo since it is instantly recognizable. You could leave named WA for members but let the logo change when an end-user signs-on. Thank you!

Don’t understand why you could just add facility to load an image for a second splash screen after WA Logo. Simple addition that means a lot to your customers.

I repeat this comment from over a year ago. It's simple and won't take a lot of your resources. If you refuse to let us promote our own organization, at least stop forcing us to promote yours (and confuse our members into the bargain)!
If we can't brand the app, how about at least removing the WA brand from it? The members don't know what WA is, and shouldn't be seeing someone else's brand if they can't see ours.
So give the app a generic title like "Your Membership" and replace the apricot logo with a membership card icon.

Branding is a must! It is not possible for us to use WA branding. We must build our own brand trust and the app is the very important part of it. That is why we still not use the app. I would recommend WA allow WA`s users to download the app for custom development as a logo, colors etc. https://vidmateapp.vin

Branding and our logo would be a really good idea.
I'm also feeling pressured about not having the organization branding on the app icon. It wasn't on my checklist when searching for a vendor because it's something one would assume would follow suit. Can we get this rolling?
Alexander Salas commented
There's a big need to at least be able to represent the organization's logo on the app. Otherwise this hampers on our user experience and customers get confused between our brand and WAs.
Richard Duncan commented
Lack of branding on the app is a deal-breaker
Just branding would be great.

This is a fantastic idea!

+1 on remaining logged in. I no longer use the mobile app because my password is unmemorizable (being an admin) and I don't carry it around. Once the mobile users' app kicks me off, I can't log in again until I get back to my home PC - where I no longer need the app.

Also allow members one time login
We have customers who have intranet/s built on the wild apricot base and members need to stay logged in to the web front end

Have you been able to make any progress with this? I understood you were working on it last year, and in your own words "Branding inside the app, though, makes total sense for me and can be quite easily done."
We are very keen to use the app, but are not able to deploy the app to our members until it has our own branding associated with it.
Presumably, something as simple as a custom logo field in the settings could be used, where a logo can be uploaded and then referenced/presented by the app?
Does anyone have any further feedback on whether branding of mobile app is yet available?
I cannot see it in either app or web settings for the mobile app?
See screenshot - Anonymous on June 11 seems to suggest it is available?
However Team Mobile on May 29th seems to suggest it is not?
Hello, love your software. I am using it for about 5 organizations I manage. I just started looking at the phone app as I currently use one by a company called 'GroupAhead'.
They have a nice app that does what yours does, but I want to migrate to yours so I can keep all of the content in sync, that being member info, calendar, events etc.
The thing they do that you don't, which would be nice if you do, is that theirs is 'prettier' in than I can upload an image for the icon on the phone and the organization is listed in side the app. this makes it easier for my users as most of them don't know what Wild Apricot event is.
Your functionality is great in the app, I just need to customize it to the organization with an icon, splash page, picture page etc like I can with Group Ahead.
Again, love your stuff and always willing to help out to make it better.

What is the status of this? It would be amazing if we had a separate app for our organization so that it is identifiable but either way we do like the app.
Another idea would be if the app icon on the users device was our logo. It does not matter so much what the app is in the app store but would be ideal to have it as our logo on their mobile device.
You can now offer the ability to customize icons for an app as well. This give you the advantage of allowing some graphical and color customization of the standard app but also allowing them to push an organization specific icon for at least the home screen of the phone and notifications. The store icon of course would still be standard. Thanks

We currently have 500+ members and we would like to bran our app to reflect our vision and organization focus of advancing the HR profession. I am the 2019 LSHRM President Elect and would like to introduce the app to our organization.
