To access the list of clubs, open the menu and choose “Clubs”:
This shows you the list of all clubs within your multi district, sorted and grouped by name:
In a glance you see important information about the club:
- its type: Lions Club: , LEO Club Omega: or LEO Club Alpha: ;
- which district it belongs to;
- its Lions Club International ID;
- whether the club is accepting only gentlemen: , ladies:
Searching a Club¶
By default the list of clubs is filtered on your multi district (“102” in our example, which is the international ID for “Switzerland/Liechtenstein”). Tap the filter icon to get access to the search field:
You can type another international ID (but wait and read Looking for Foreign Clubs below, that is much easier) or complete with a district name (e.g., “102 C” to only show clubs in the district 102 Centro), or a region name (e.g., “102 C-1” for the region 1 in district 102 Centro), … you get it!
And of course, you can type the name of a club to filter the list and access it quickly!
By default, clubs are sorted alphabetically by name, but sometimes it may be interesting to sort them by charter night (thus by date of creation) instead. To do that, simply tap the corresponding button:
Looking for Foreign Clubs¶
A few other countries are using (or testing) the LionsBase mobile application. To access those clubs, the easiest way is to tap on the globe icon:
This will present you a list of available countries (well, multi districts):
Choose a country and instantly the list of clubs will be filtered accordingly.
You can then open the profile page of a foreign club just as you would for clubs within your multi district. However, access to private information such as the list of members will be restricted. In order to be visible as a foreign member, you will have to explicitly share your profile with foreign clubs and mark the exact pieces of information you are willing to share (e.g., you share your private email address but not any phone number nor your date of birth).
Please read chapter Data Protection and Exchange for further information.
Details of a Club¶
When you tap the name of a club in a list , it opens its profile page:
Many parts of the profile page are actual links to further operations. For instance:
- If you are browsing your own club and you are (one of) its Club LionsBase Master, you will see this camera icon that lets you change the background image associated to your club (the Roman arenas by night in this example). By default clubs get a blue background.
- Tap the map icon and your maps application will open to guide you to the meeting point of this club.
- Tap an email address, a postal address or a meeting, … and a logical operation will start: an email address will start a new mail to the club, a postal address will open your maps application to provide guidance, …
When you browse a club profile, the most important information right after the contact information is how that club is organised. The two links “Committee” and “Members” show you the Executive board and their officers:
or, when tapping “Members”:
As usual when see a member in a list, tap on his/her name to open the profile page.
The committee is grouped and sorted by importance of the function so there is no any sorting options. For the list of members however, the persons are sorted alphabetically by name (with their birthday as secondary line of information) but you may sort them by year of entry (the secondary line of information will then change to their year of entry as well), or by age.
You may long tap the name of a member to access the list of other members having held the corresponding position:
Tap on a meeting to get guidance to the club local or restaurant:
The club’s life is grouped in a section “Agenda”:
The link “Program” will show a list of upcoming events strictly limited to this club. If some of those events are opened to members of other clubs, then you will have the chance to register to it and the corresponding event will then be part of your personal calendar. If you want to see what’s up next for you, we advise you to always use the Calendar menu entry instead, and not this link within your own club’s profile page; this way, you are sure you really see everything that is targeted at yourself, and not only part of those events.
This link shows the various social activities of the club. Since there is a lot to say, this is described in a dedicated section below.
General & Sponsors¶
Finally, the profile page shows some general information (as usual, tap the name of the zone or the district to go to the profile page of that level, see the list of officers at this level or the clubs in that area):
and the list of sponsor clubs:
Simply tap the name of a sponsor club to learn more from it!
