on my iPhone, tapping the hamburger menu (bottom right) it works almost normally - admin can be expanded, but not shrunk again with another tap.
on the other hand, when I tap on „Help“ then select one of the manuals (Owner or Member), I get the „my groups“ list, the manual doesn‘t open. This happens on both iPad and iPhone.

I'm unable to reproduce this. Is anyone else seeing this?

Thanks,

Admin functions in App #bug

Hi,
when I‘m in a group where I‘m owner or moderator, and then tap on the „Admin“ heading, it immediately jumps to the Owner‘s help page/manual. This is on iPad in landscape mode, which basically looks like the web view on a bigger computer.
on my iPhone, tapping the hamburger menu (bottom right) it works almost normally - admin can be expanded, but not shrunk again with another tap.

Do you have an estimate for when the Android version may be available?

I was able to get to the admin area by clicking on the hamburger at the bottom right. 


When I reply to a message, the field to write in doesn’t automatically start above the keyboard or scroll down as you type. You can manually scroll with your finger, but it would be nicer to have it automatically move as you type text. Thanks

Hi Mark, thanks for getting us another app to test. However, the admin panel does not show up on the app to approve or remove members if necessary. And this is something that I use the website extensively for.

Hi All,

A new version of the app is available for testing on iOS devices, using TestFlight. The public link is: https://testflight.apple.com/join/jWBSS0Jd

Click that link while on an iOS device to begin the process of getting the app.

Some notes:

• This is a completely different app than what was tested before. This is more of a shell around the website that supports notifications and other app features. So, it's more feature complete and behaves more like the website. Also, it will be easier to update and keep in sync with the website.
• Unread count badges now show up in the app icon. The number represents the number of notifications you've received since the last time you used the app.
• New messages since the last time you viewed the app are now indicated with a blue dot. These disappear after you've seen them once.
• Calendar integration doesn't work yet.
• There is not yet a version on Android for testing.
Please report bugs.

Thanks,
Mark

I don't want to keep bugging you about the app but I'm coming up very quickly on a go/no-go deadline with respect to abandoning our group's use of groups.io for the River City Gems group. The group is moving toward a platform with full support for mobile devices. More and more members are abandoning their desktop and laptop devices and going using their mobile device as their primary network interface. I believe the platform being proposed as the new one is not as robust as groups.io but the key missing piece is the mobile device app. For some reason there is great pressure to not use an email based interface on the mobile device.

Realistically, it will go on Testflight for testing in 2 weeks. But it won't be ready for final release for maybe two months.

Out of curiosity, can you say what the other platform is that they are considering?

Thanks,
Mark

Hi Mark,

I don't want to keep bugging you about the app but I'm coming up very quickly on a go/no-go deadline with respect to abandoning our group's use of groups.io for the River City Gems group.

I believe the platform being proposed as the new one is not as robust as groups.io but the key missing piece is the mobile device app. For some reason there is great pressure to not use an email based interface on the mobile device.

I think I can hold off the board of directors for maybe two to four weeks but after that we might have to move off groups.io unless I can get some time on the new app and maybe have a date when it will be available for general release.

I would like to stay with groups.io because I like the feature set. Any info you could provide would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Joanie

Duane, thanks for the head up. I'm not sure how to contact Mark "off list". I'm not sure what that means. I went to the groups.io directory and sent Mark an email from there but have not seen a response. Is that the correct method? Regards, Joanie

He was on holiday/vacation for most of the time, but was also hunkered down trying to get the new version of the app ready as noted in my first link above.

Mark mentioned about a month ago that the app is being redone using web site templates, so it might be worth waiting for the newer version.  https://beta.groups.io/g/main/message/27115 and more recently at https://beta.groups.io/g/api/message/225
