Build-On Tutorial:

iPhone Directory

Memberships Template: iPhone Directory


Tutorial summary

This Build-On lets your team access a directory of your members from their iPhones. When the app detects that they are logging in from an iPhone, it will take them straight to this directory. This is particularly helpful if you have users who need to contact members while on the move.

What to expect

When you’re done with this Build-On, your team will be able to:

  • Log in to your app from an iPhone
  • See a directory of members
  • Call or email a member from that directory
