We would not want to give our members the ability to simply cancel their membership without notifying the Admin. Our members have various responsibilities and commitments to our organisation, so removal of their membership needs to be managed by Admins. A simply "request to cancel membership" button would suffice - thus allowing the Admin to either "Approve" (which results in archiving the member) or "Action" (which allows the Admin to do whatever further actions are necessary before archiving them).
I know, the Polling feature is now in Beta which is fantastic. But we want everything at once, don't we? :)
Once the polling feature is deployed, it would be fantastic to have it available on mobile (perhaps through an email interface instead?).
So many people only use their mobile these days - though there is a web browser on the mobile phone - so they could access the poll that way I guess. Thanks.
After initial analysis we decided to remove this feature from 2017 plans. Right now we don’t have clear understanding when this feature will be taken into development.
I think there are lots of service providers that can be used, instead of embedding this feature within Wild Apricot.
Please review results of our analysis and design:
Post your comments/ideas right here. Until we see major disapproval, this is what we will develop in one of future releases.
Beta-testing of Member location mapping is closed – many thanks to eveyone who participated!
We’re fixing some issues based on your feedback and going to release it soon.
Membership team @ Wild Apricot
Can I ask one question - the thread attachment shows how this gadget will display members Address details only. Will it be possible to select a range of other membership fields to be displayed on the map?
We need the member address, plus several other membership fields which indicate the member's availability, speciality, skills etc.
Thanks Team Astra! This will be a fantastic addition to the system - well worth the increase in subscription fees. I look forward to it.
You can use BatchGeo.com to map members on a Google map. Just export the required fields from your membership list to Excel, then copy/paste from Excel into BatchGeo maps. Send or embed the link to the map in your website. Users can search and filter by any attribute. It's easy.
This is really Iimportant for our organisation. I currently export our membership data into excel then upload the data to Batchgeo to produce a plotted map of members. We really need the map within wild apricot which plots members directly. Please!
In the latest update 1.3.1 profile screen was made a default screen after login. We understand that it is not a complete solution for the problem, however we hope it will be helpful.
I really think that, as this is a Members App and obviously only members are using it - they already know what organisation they are a member of, the addition of organisation branding should be much lower down the priority list. It's a 'nice to have', not a need. Lets focus on things that matter.
A very important case with an unstable internet connection have been processed (see a short demo in the end)
In general: we show a special tooltip in the bottom of the screen when the internet is lost. Users still are able to navigate through a side menu. If they have something cached they will see it. When the internet appears an app starts updating info automatically.
Feel free to check a short demo (20 Mb):
Our next step will be a stabilization – testing the app in general and fixing issues that will appear.
Good news on recurring donations: the core is ready. You can make recurring donation and Wild Apricot will charge it automatically.
However we got a bit stuck with management of donations, so we seek for your input here. If you have 5 spare minutes – please check out this prototype and answer a few simple questions. You will help us significantly:
We also need to be able to print member ID cards - so exporting some key contact details PLUS their profile picture.
Provide an "Export / Download" function from the Directory page. So when a users searches, or filters, the membership to display a certain list of members, they can then download that list to excel.
I currently use Batch Geo to plot members on google maps. I export my members into a spreadsheet, then upload the spreadsheet into Batch Geo. It would be great to incorporate this type of feature in Wild Apricot.
We need to know if a member changes their phone number or address, so would like a notification sent to the Administrator whenever certain member details are modified.
Alternatively, could we export an extract of member details based on a last modified date field?
