This version update contains lots of new features and improvements to help the Military App community be more engaged and connected online.

What's On

  • This is a brand-new area that lists all events open to the Military App community, giving members the chance to search events by region that are local to them. 
  • What’s On hosts events not just from your Regimental, social or activity groups but also events that are supported across the wider veteran community. These may include breakfast clubs, veterans’ hub engagements or career and professional development events.
  • What’s On lists all the events you are attending, considering going to and invited to and for Event Organisers, all your created events will also be listed here so you can easily update details and invite people to join.
  • We have added a powerful search filter to narrow down the location and types of events that you might be interested in.
  • You will also find more details about the event - who from your connections is attending, questions the organiser needs to know, and payment links for paid events.

Group Events

  • We have updated this section using our brand-new events engine.
  • Event Organisers can now create your Walk+Talk, Social, and Activity events here. Invite your friends, family, or even the whole Regiment. You can also add photos, save events to your calendar, email event details, as well as adding payment details and other links.
  • Event Organisers can now set any number of questions as part of their event advert and participants will have to answer the questions before submitting their RSVP. These can include for example - ‘Are you coming?’ ‘Are you bringing a plus one?’ ‘Do you have any dietary requirements?’ ‘Who wants to go for a brew after the walk?’  
  • Event Organisers will also have a page dedicated to responses of the people you invited to your event with the option to download a report in spreadsheet format if needed.
  • We have also added a Public Link function for organisers and attendees to share outside of the app if needed. This shares event information (after removing any member data), and still sends back the participant feedback to the Event Organiser’s report. This means an Event Organiser (from a small event to a large dinner) can use the app as an efficient way to manage their events, without having to give up on existing communications channels that have helped them raise awareness in the past.
  • Events that are exclusive to the whole Regiment or group can also be found here.

Polls in Chat

  • We added a new interactive way to add questions as Polls within Group Chat.
  • If you have any questions for the group or about a certain event you are organising, asking a Poll in the Group Chat is the most efficient way to get answers. For example - ‘Who is interested in a walk next week?’ or ‘Which of these dates works best for our next curry?’
  • You will also have a breakdown of all the answers to your Poll.

Group Management

  • For Group Admins, we have added new tools to manage members, toggle sections of the group, and manage event organisers.

Others

  • You can now invite your friends from your Regiment to join the Military App community using your phone contacts.
  • We made some improvements in informing you of important updates. You will always be prompted for any new changes to our Terms and Conditions, and new version app updates of the Military App.

Transforming the way Regiments and Military Units connect and support their entire family.
