If there are multiple Wild Apricot accounts associated with their email address and password, members will be then asked to choose the organization they want to log into.
Members can log out of the app from their profile screen.
Navigating the member app
Depending on your settings, the Wild Apricot member app can consist of the following modules: Members, Events, My tickets, Profile. To jump between these modules, tap the module name at the bottom of the screen.
Viewing the member directory
Unless you have disabled it within your member app settings, members can view your member directory by tapping Members at the bottom of the screen.
If you want a photo to appear for each member, create a picture field as a common field or membership field and name it Photo.
Within your app settings, you can control which kinds of members appear within the directory. Members who have set their profiles to private within their privacy settings will not appear regardless of your settings.
Tapping on a member within the directory will display that member's profile (subject to their privacy settings).
To send an email message to the member, tap Message beside the member's photo, or tap the member's email address.
The Message option will appear if the member's privacy settings is set to display the Send message form, even if the member's email address is hidden.
To copy the contents of a profile field, tap the field.
Viewing the events list
Unless you have disabled it within your member app settings, members can view an event calendar showing upcoming events by tapping Events list at the bottom of the screen.
Tapping any of the events within the list will display the details of that event.
To add the event to your calendar app, tap Add to calendar. You'll be asked for permission to access your calendar.
Tapping on the location within the event details will display the location within your map app.
If the event has multiple sessions, you can tap View all sessions to view session details.
Members can register for the event by tapping the Register button beside the appropriate registration type. The registration form will appear, along with options to specify the number of guests and indicate whether the registrant wants to appear within the public list of event registrants.
The registrant cannot register guests if the registration type was set up to collect contact information or full registration information.
Once they complete the registration form and tap Continue, their payment options will appear. Depending on the payment method chosen when the event was set up, members might see Invoice me and/or Pay online buttons.
