Our Community mobile app has been downloaded more than 12,000 times since its launch in October 2019.
The aim has always been to keep the app relatively simple and provide you with a way to catch up with Community discussions on the go. I like to think of it as the Community ‘in your pocket’!
We continually make minor tweaks to the app, but today (17th August) released version 2.0.
MORE ABOUT THE APP
As on the desktop, you can receive notifications when someone replies to your posts or creates a new discussion in a forum you are following. You can post, reply and ‘like’ comments… and whatever you do is immediately reflected on the desktop version: it’s the same Community.
WHAT'S NEW IN VERION 2.0?
- You can now make a keyword search within the app and filter the results by relevance or date.
- You can now also change and update your profile photo. Any change you make will also be pulled through to the desktop version of the Community.
There are one or two things you can do on the desktop version that you cannot currently do on the app. For example:
- You will not be able to send private messages to other community members.
We will continue to improve functionality and add features in future releases.
You can also access a convenient digital version of your membership card via the app – another reason to download it!
HOW TO DOWNLOAD THE APP
Simply search for "CIPD Community" on the app stores.
As you would expect, there is an iOS version for iPhone and an Android version.
USING THE APP
The first time you use the app you will need to log in using the same details you use to access your CIPD online account (i.e. how you access the Community on your desktop). This is particularly important if you are a CIPD member and wish to be able to view your membership card within the app.
There is more information about the app on this page.
If at any time when using the app you have any ideas for further developments please keep me posted via: email@example.com
