FAQs

My app has been removed from the App Store—how do I get it back?

When an app is removed from the app store, it is most likely because your Apple Developer Program Membership has expired. In order to get your app back in the store, you will need to renew your Apple Developer Program Membership.

To do so, log into the Apple Developer Website, using your Account Credentials and follow those prompts.

Here is a link to an Apple Support Article on how to renew your membership: Program Renewal Support Article

The Account Holder no longer works at the club/I can't login to the Account at all

This is one of the most common questions received from clubs where the Apple ID might have been created by someone who no longer works with the organization and during the initial set-up of the account, used their personal work email.

In order to retrieve the login information the club will most likely need to contact Apple Support directly in order to change the Apple ID & Password. This is because in order to change the Apple ID, you will need the Account Password, & vice versa.

Recover Your Apple ID When You Can't Reset Your Password

If the Club is having trouble with the Account Recovery Process, we recommend contacting Apple Support. This site can be reached from any of the support articles listed above, or from the main support page follow these steps:

  1. Click Apple ID
  2. Click Forgot Apple ID Password
  3. There are 2 options for how to proceed from here:
    1. Click iforgot.apple.com - this will prompt you to submit your Apple ID, once submitted, it will ask you to enter the phone number that you use with your Apple ID. Enter this number to continue, and follow the remaining prompts. In most cases this number belonged to the employee no longer with the club- if the club does not have access to that phone number follow the next step (b.)
    2. Click "No Thanks. Continue." This will bring you to a page explaining each way you can contact support. From here you can get in touch with the support team to explain the situation and have them help you in the recovery process.

Once your Account is recovered, it is highly recommended that you change the Account Holder email to a club alias such as [email protected], [email protected] etc. as it is very difficult to transfer ownership of the app from a single person's account to another if the person leaves the club. If the club needs to create a new Apple ID using a club alias, they can do so using this link:

Are agreements something MembersFirst can just handle for us?

No, this is not something the MembersFirst team can handle for our customers. The Account Holders login details for clubs are unique to the account that your team created and being the admin on the account, the terms & conditions/billing requirements—whatever the specific issue is for an account—are not accessible to the MembersFirst team through our access level. In addition, there is no way to grant additional access to the MembersFirst team to take care of this either as some of them are legal agreements.

Do I need to update the "Set Up Tax, Banking, & Contacts" section?

No, you will not need to update these terms. These are terms for apps that either people pay to download, or ones with in-app purchases. Please disregard this section.

Why do I need to update agreements?

Apple requires App Store Connect Users to update Agreements fairly regularly to different policies related to the App Store. It is required that someone on the club's side is actively monitoring emails to the Apple ID email being used in order to respond to Apple's requests so you don't miss out on enhancements or bug fixes to the mobile app framework.

Where do I go to update agreements?

There are potentially two Apple websites that may require Agreement Updates. Using your Account Holder Login credentials- go to the following sites to update Agreements:

How often do I need to update agreements from Apple? How will I know when I need to?

Apple requires App Store Connect Users to update Agreements fairly regularly to different policies related to the App Store. It is required that someone on the club's side is actively monitoring emails to the Apple ID email being used as Apple will periodically send emails letting the club know when a new agreement is available for review.

We also recommend logging into the App Store Connect Website once a month to verify that all Agreements are up to date. Upon logging into App Store Connect, from the home screen- Apple will show an alert for any Pending Agreements on the App Store Connect Website or the Apple Developer Website. If an Agreement is needed on the latter, you will be prompted to head to that site to review and update terms. Upon log in- if you do not see the yellow alert shown below, all Agreements are up to date.

Here are some examples of what you might see:

I received an email from Apple, do I need to act on it?

If you received an email from Apple, there is a good chance you may need to update agreements on your Account.

Using your Account Holder Login credentials- go to the following sites to update Agreements:

Why don't my MembersFirst admin credentials work when trying to log in to the app?

Admin credentials do not work on the Mobile App, because the App is directly tied to your Member Directory. If your employees are not already part of the Member Directory, you can create a Mobile App Test Account to use to login and review the app.

To create a test Account for the Mobile App follow these steps:

  1. Login to the admin side of your website
  2. Go to the Member Directory
  3. Click "New" at the top to create a new member profile & fill in the following fields. For example:
    1. Member Number: MOBILETEST
    2. First Name: Mobile
    3. Last Name: Test
    4. Email Address: [email protected]
    5. Member Type: Website Only
    6. Force Pwd Change?: Uncheck this box
    7. Click Create Now
  4. In the New Profile you created:
    1. Fill in the password & confirm
    2. On the right hand side of the profile screen, scroll until you see member Directory Options. Check off Hide in User Directory, that was this test account will be hidden from the members view
    3. Click Save at the top of the screen

Now you and your team will be able to log into the app using the new Test Account you just created.

Note: this test account will not have access to SSOs for other applications, such as Account Statements or Tee Times.

How can I send a "proof" notification to just myself + the GM (and possibly a couple other staff/board members)?

In order to send a Test Notification to just your team, you will need to be using a Mobile App Test Account for login credentials. If your team does not have this, please refer to the question above, "Why doesn't my Admin credentials work when trying to log in?" where you will learn how to create a test account.

After that is complete, go to the New Message Application in your sites MRM

  1. Enter the name for your New Message Draft & Click Create Draft
  2. You will now be able to select the recipients you would like to send this message to. Under the Member section click the select box next to Member Type:
    1. All the Member Types in your directory will populate, scroll until you see the Website Only type and check the box (this is the member type you set up for the Mobile Test profile)
    2. Then click Next
  3. In the Message Type tab click Mobile App Push Notification
  4. Continue through the normal steps of sending a Push Notification, as now this will only be sending to Admins with the Website Only Member Type

How do we add to the navigation in the mobile app?

In order to add an item to your Apps navigation, you will need to contact your Client Services Manager directly for assistance.

How can I make documents appear/disappear in the "Club Documents" list?
