Recently Visited Member Profiles

Each time you visit a member profile, by tapping the member item in any list of the mobile application, it will be added to your list of “recently visited member profiles” and the next time you use the menu to search a member, you will see that list:

You may naturally tap any member in this list to quickly open the corresponding profile.

The link “Clear” (top right) lets you clear the whole list whereas swiping an item to the left will uncover a trash icon which lets you remove individual items.

Note

The list is sorted so that the most recent profile you visited is accessible at the top of the list.

Profile Page of a Member

Many parts of the profile page are actual links to further operations. For instance:

  2. That’s a hidden shortcut! Tap the name of the club to open the profile page of the corresponding club.

  3. If you are browsing your own profile, you will see this camera icon that lets you change your background image (the party for the swiss national day on August 1st in this example). By default members get a blue background.

    Note

    We were asked how to go back to the blue background once you changed it for a custom picture: this is not possible, so if you do not like your background picture anymore, that’s easy: simply change it for a new one!

  4. Tap a phone number, an email address, a postal address, … and a logical operation will start: an email address will start a new mail to that member, a postal address will open your maps application to provide guidance, …
