- News Feed
The news feed feature shows the latest updates from the group leader. Whether it is a new survey, payment form, donation campaign, email or event, all your MP business will be organized and saliently visible on the home screen. Each item can be opened, viewed, and shared socially. You can even make payments on the go with your credit card! You can also filter the feed to show just photo albums, or just upcoming events.
- Make Payments on the go!
Pay dues! The simple card scanner lets you make payments anywhere, anytime.
- Request Payments
If you are a group leader, you can use the card scanner to accept payments right on your phone! Accept dues payments or signups at your next meeting!
- Favorites Feed
If you are a member of multiple groups, like a church, school, PTA, homeowners association etc, it can be difficult to keep track of it all. The MP app allows you to combine all or some of your groups in a single feed or calendar, so you can see everything in one place. You can always view each group separately, but the Favorites feed gives you the option of seeing everything together. You can choose which of your groups to include in “Favorites” under your app settings.
- Get Reminders
The icons int he upper right (see photo) are your notification icons. When you see red numbers appear, you know you have a pending announcement or action item. When you respond to an item, it will disappear from your notifications.
You juggle a lot – MP wants to make it easier! The History feature (found in the main menu) keeps track of all of your past actions on MemberPlanet. You can always check here to see if you paid your dues, registered for an event or submitted a survey response.
