A free mobile app is available to all members of associations that use the GrowthZone software. By providing your members with the MemberPlus mobile app, your association is offering so much more than easy, direct access to your association office. Mobile apps, downloadable on any Apple or Android mobile phone or tablet, create a brand new multimedia channel for retaining and engaging your members, especially those who already are active mobile users. While people of all ages use mobile apps, a mobile member app will often appeal to younger members. However, even older members appreciate the ease of using a mobile app on their smartphones or tablets.
With the MemberPlus App your members will be able to:
- View the member directory and contact members via that directory
- View Hot Deals, Jobs and other web content. If given rights to do so they can also add web content
- If you have enabled the forum for the Info Hub your member will be able to view and comment on forum topics
- View and pay invoices. NOTE: The member will not be able to set up autopay using the app.
- View and register for events
- View and upload resources
- View any additional links you may have created for the InfoHub
IMPORTANT! The functions in the MemberPlus App are available based on the members' access level. This is the access level to the InfoHub.
There’s no additional cost to your association or your members. The MemberPlus app is available in both the iTunes and Google Play stores. It’s designed for your members, much like the GrowthZone Staff app was designed for you to use. Essentially we wanted to create an easier way for your members to update their personal and company information, register for events, interact with other members, access the Resource center, etc…

Logging In to the MemberPlus app

How it works:
A "magic sign-in" email will be sent to that email that includes a "magic link" to open the app.
- The member can click the link to access the app. The link is good for 24 hours. Opening this email on their mobile device will allow them quick entry into the app without having to remember and/or change their password.

Members can also click the icon, to view system navigation options.
|NOTE: Options available in the navigation menu will be dependent on what you have implemented in your database. For Example: If you have multiple directories each will be displayed OR if you have not implemented web content, those items will not be displayed. All menu items will use the system terminology you have setup for your database.|
