How to create community articles for your Member App

Adding community to your Member App is a great way to keep your members engaged with your gym/studio. You can keep your community motivated to come back again and again by sharing your fitness blog posts, recipes and training tips directly to your 'Member App' 'Community Feed'.

To add 'Community' to your 'Member App' or 'Standalone App', follow these steps;

  1. Go to the 'Connect' icon
  2. Click on the 'Community' tab
  3. Click '+Add'
  4. Select whether you would like to create a video or image post.
    • If you select a video, enter the URL for the video (Only Youtube links will be playable in the App)
    • If you select an image, upload the image file
    • If you select External link, add a valid URL (the link will open when clicking on the image in the app)
  5. Give your community post a title
  6. Add descriptive tags to your post. For example; fitness, trending, blog, tips. 
  7. Choose to restrict the content to Members only (or all users)
  8. Click 'Save'


Please note:

It may take a few minutes for images to appear in your community articles. 

Adding images into your community articles

It is possible to add an image to your 'Community' article, however, it must be hosted on another site and linked in. To do that, follow these steps; 

  1. From the dashboard, go to the 'Connect' icon
  2. Then go the 'Community' tab
  3. Click on the 'Community' you want to edit (or add a new one)
  4. Now locate the image you want to add in online, for example, we've used the Glofox logo which is nested on the Glofox website
  5. Right-click on the image and select, 'Open Image in New Tab' (This verbiage might differ depending on the browser you are using) 
  6. From the new tab, copy the URL of the image 
  7. Go back to the 'Message' and click the icon representing an image  Screenshot_2020-01-16_at_15.59.38.png

  9. Click 'Save'


How to filter content by tags on the Member App

You can now filter content in the community section by tags on the Member App. When a tag is added to an article , your members will now be able to filter the content on the App to display on articles marked with the tag.

To filter content by tags

  1.  Navigate to the community section of the Member App
  2.  Select filter in the top right of the App
  3.  Select the relevant tag you wish to filter by
