Mobile Portal


The mobile portal is designed to allow staff members to access Arena from browser-enabled mobile devices. As such, the pages use simple templates and do not have the script handling capabilities of a full web site. The mobile portal allows staff:

Search, view and edit records

Send emails to existing records

Upload member photos

Use Check-In to check someone in

View subscribed Personal and subscribed Tags

View My Lists

View list of Staff

View and update prayer list requests

Enter record notes with the option to mark them private

The mobile portal, template, pages and modules are already in place. You can elect to make all available features available to your staff or customize specific features.
