NEW APP : Update
Today we made a big step forward in the iOS app. We have 90% fully functional and should be able to release for Beta testing by the end on August.
Beta testing of the Android and web apps is ongoing with various clubs and their members. If anyone else at any club would like to trial the new Android app please ask them to get in touch with us at email@example.com. Anyone can use the web app at mibile.connectmyclub.co.uk

New connectMyClub app - Update
An update on the new connectMyClub app
We've just begun the beta testing phase for the web version of the all new app. This will run initially for a few weeks internally and with Massey Ferguson Running Club. Following this initial phase we will fix any issues which arise then open up the next phase of testing to all clubs. Once any creases are ironed out during testing we will create the new iOS and Android app. The fully functioning web app will stay online and replace the current member's portal. This means even if a club member doesn't have a mobile device on which to run an iOS or Android app the can have the same app on their computer.
In the meantime we would like to get all app users involved. Please spread the message if you can. We are running a competition on our social media channels @connectmyclub and Facebook where your members can submit a photo to be used on the new login screen. The image shown on the current web app login a screen was kindly submitted by a member of Paul Popham Running Club
We will keep you updated with any further developments.

Club members gender
In line with English Athletics, apologies to our Scottish and Welsh clubs, we assume things will be similar, each member's Gender at birth can now be recorded on their member profile alongside the current Male / Female mailing list option. All members are automatically assigned a Gender at birth based on which mailing list they are currently place on, so there's no need to do any extra admin unless a particular member has changed their gender.

It has become apparent that some clubs leave the membership renewal process open all year, we think, to accommodate new joiners. This isn't how the feature was initially designed. As this seems to be the way in which some clubs use the renewal the feature, in the all new app (in development), there will be an option to show the membership form to new members and the membership renewal form too existing members during the membership renewal period.
The all new app is well into its development. We will let clubs know more later in the year when we're nearer to launching. The current intention is to remove the members portal from the website. Instead have a fully working browser version of the app to sit alongside the iOS and Android apps.

Future plans for the apps
We will soon be stopping development on new features for the My Running Club & My Tri Club apps. This is because we believe the framework on which the apps are currently built has taken us as far as it can. Therefore we're planning to redevelop the apps from the ground up.
We currently have an improvement to the photo albums feature and a "Meet the committee" feature being developed. When these are complete we will issue the app update. Then we will move our efforts onto the new improved app.
We will be working our way through each of the apps' many features to make them as user friendly and bug free as possible. The new framework which we have chosen will make the app much sleeker by implementing more of Android's and iOS' native features.
Obviously we'll still be here to offer support and to fix any bugs within the current apps.

2022 Strava Challenge
It's only a few days until the end of the 2021 100km per month Stava challenge and the beginning of the 2022 "900 mins" Strava challenge. Sounds like a lot but it's only ~30 minutes per day of any Strava recorded exercise. Just ensure you've connected your Strava to your connectMyClub account to take part.
