To search a member, open the menu and choose “Find Members”:
Use the input field to find members:
You can search members by many pieces of information, as suggested you can type part of his/her name, a phone number, an email address, a company name, the name of his/her partner, …
After typing a few characters, the mobile application will automatically look for corresponding members and start showing results matching your query:
Simply tap on a member to open his/her profile page and get more information.
Such a list of members will be reused at various places in the application. E.g., when you show the list of participants of an event or the committee of a club, of a zone, … For some members you may see some icons next to them:
Here is their meaning:
- : the member is in his/her birthday period; this symbol is shown starting 10 days before and is kept visible until 2 days after the actual birthday;
- : the member has received one or more awards, typically Melvin Jones;
- : the member is a Guiding Lion and is happy to help you if you have general questions about the Lions Clubs International or if you want to create a new club.
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.
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¶
When you tap the name of a member in a list, it opens his/her personal profile page where you can learn a lot more about him/her:
Many parts of the profile page are actual links to further operations. For instance:
Tap this icon to export the member to your personal address book.
That’s a hidden gem! Tap the name of the club to open the profile page of the corresponding club.
If you are browsing your own profile, you will see this camera icon that lets you change your background image (the mountain with snow sight in this example). By default members get a blue background.
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!
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, …
It is worth mentioning that tapping a phone number will not start a call right away but will show a menu with possible operations. Particularly, for mobile numbers, these are the various options:

Skills and interests are visible in the member’s profile (click on an item to search for other members sharing the same interest):
Scroll down the profile page even more and you will see the sponsors of the member and guess what? yes! you may tap on the name to open the sponsor member’s profile page!
Finally, at the very end of the profile page, you can access the Lions history of the member:
which shows you every club the member has been part of and the present and former functions he/she held:
