A very common question that we get from MemberHub users is around sending messages to only select people (rather than the entire group). With a new enhancement to Discussions, we’ve made it much easier to send messages to select group of people inside a hub. Users can now start a threaded Discussion with sub group of people inside a hub with ease.
One of the challenges that organizations have experienced with MemberHub is the ability to communicate at multiple levels within their organization. For example, many of you have created an organization-wide hub, but you’ve always had to remember to add new people to that hub along with any other groups they need to collaborate with. A new feature in MemberHub called Hub Trees is designed to help our customers communicate more… read more →
Sending text messages has been an integral feature in MemberHub from the very beginning. Calendar event reminders can be sent via text message, but the primary way administrators send text messages is through MemberHub’s Announcements feature. We’ve made a change to Announcements that we anticipate will be well received! Essentially, we have removed the 160-character limit that was placed on new Announcements.
We’ve made some small tweaks to the Whiteboards feature. Nothing too fancy, but very much needed. As a reminder, Whiteboards are an easy way for groups to create simple signup sheets, brainstorm ideas on a particular topic, or to post additional information for members of their hub. Whiteboards have version tracking and members can edit the whiteboard content or leave a comment at the bottom.
We have released an enhancement to the Discussions feature in MemberHub. It has been redesigned for improved readability and and browsing. Each hub has its own Discussion Board which acts like a mailing list for the members in that hub. When discussion threads have many messages that have been sent via email,
We’ve made an enhancement to our calendars in MemberHub. Hopefully, you’ve taken advantage of the Main Calendar feature for organization-wide events. Those events show up on all calendars and reminders go to everyone. However, sometimes a group might need to post something on their hub calendar but still let everyone know about it…especially if the group is planning on using a particular location that others in the organization may need… read more →
One very handy feature in MemberHub is the ability to subscribe to calendar events and have them automatically push to your personal calendar system like iCal, Outlook, GMail calendar and smartphones. If you subscribe to your organization’s Main Calendar feed (as opposed to each hub calendar separately) you get all your hub calendar events in one feed. Sometimes it can be difficult to tell which hub the event came from. Well… read more →
We’ve introduced an enhancement to events in MemberHub. Events can now have a map associated with them. When someone clicks on the event link inside a MemberHub calendar if an address has been provided, there will be a link to a Google map. Clicking that link will open a new tab with a large Google map for someone to easily view and get directions. This link will also get included… read more →
We used to allow any user in MemberHub to edit their family members…but long story short, it became unwieldy. So we gave control over setting up families strictly to admins. However, we’ve had many customers (mainly churches) that have wanted to give the responsibility back to their members to configure their families and help setup the member directory. So, we’ve added it back.
