December Updates for Daxko Mobile

We know that January is your busiest time, and we want to ensure that your members have a great experience with your mobile app.

On Thursday December 13th, new versions of the Daxko Mobile app will be posted to the Apple and Google Play stores. These apps will go through the normal approval process from Apple and Google, and will be available to members in the next 1-5 days.

With Version 10.7, we focused on performance and small changes to the app.

  • We’ve solved a few bugs around push notifications in the app.
  • We’ve removed “Coming Soon” language from the home page of the app.
  • To comply with Apple’s terms and conditions regarding app icon design, YMCA app icons will also display the association name underneath the logo in the Apple and Google Play Stores.

Once you’ve chosen an Initiative Template to use, you’ll still need to customize the template to make it reflect your style and branding.  You’ll want to check these fields and settings before pressing launch:

  • Emails: subject lines, signatures, links and to/from settings will need to be checked.
  • Tasks: instructions may need additional review, and staff members or teams will need to be chosen

You can follow step-by-step instructions on using Initiative Templates in our User Guide.
