    First of all, thank you for the awesome updated mobile app. This single piece may be what our district needed to get people to actually use clubrunner.

    One Suggestion: Can people submit stories/content through the mobile app? Our PR Team already posts to facebook live during meetings, and that ability is what is keeping the current news flowing. If we could write articles/stories from the mobile app, upload and attach photos from the meeting. Editors can then tweak and edit them for layout and publishing later, that would be great!.

    The hardest part about our website and newsletters is getting content. If we had multiple people who could submit content, then our PR team would have a much easier and faster time simply publishing the information, rather than writing and publishing it.

    Agreed - the hardest part is always getting content. If there was an easier way for people to send me a photo and 150-300 words, then I could make the front page and the bulletin more dynamic and community-driven. Some people would find the app to be an easier way even if others did not. The ability to format in the app is not that important, as an editor would need to review the stories before publication.

    In general, even people with 70 access should be able to create stories. Just not publish. This would probably create new problems for the editors but I'd say they would be in the "good problem to have" category.

    Hi Mark, Bob, & Les,

    These are good suggestions and I've passed them over to our Product team for their review.

    It is always really interesting to hear how Clubs are making use of ClubRunner and other third party tools. We're looking at the mobile app as a long term feature in ClubRunner. One of our recent updates was to allow tokenized event registration in the mobile app. This allows your members to view events and if there is open registration to be taken directly to the registration screen. We're going to continue to do more with the mobile app as we move forward, I just don't have anything else I can share publicly yet!

    I can understand how this workflow would be helpful to clubs, thank you for the feedback!
