A First Look at Zen Planner’s Exciting New Member App

2018-11-13T20:39:52+00:00December 2nd, 2015|Software Features|17 Comments

Our customers let us know – while Zen Planner is fantastic for running their business, there’s always been one piece missing; a member mobile app. Until now, that is. We’re in development on a new app, and this time, it’s for your members!

Share Your Calendar

Our first phase, due out later this year, starts with your business’ calendar. It’s easy for your students to see what’s going on at your gym. In addition to seeing when classes are scheduled and class descriptions, your students will be able to quickly reserve their spot in class or on a waitlist.

Customize the App for Your Business

Want to make the app your own? You can fully customize which classes are included, class limits and waitlist parameters. You can also easily manage staff profiles, and decide whether to enable our “who’s coming” community building feature.

Are your members iPhone or Android lovers? It doesn’t matter with our new app – it will be available in both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store, with full functionality included on both platforms.

Build Your Community

We know that building your gym community is important, which is why we’ve even added a few “app only” features – staff photos and bios, as well as a listing of who has already reserved a spot in class.

Update

The Member Mobile App has arrived, and has new features including Workout Tracking, digital signatures, bill payments and more.


From mobile apps and Integrated Websites to automated emails and advanced reporting, gym management software should include vital features to take your business to the next level. Get your copy of our checklist, 9 Things Your Gym Software Must Have.

    Can you include a social sharing feature and a commenting feature for members to interact with each other via the app

      That’s a great recommendation, Robert. Our Product team is looking for feedback and recommendations like this to help improve the app in the future. We’ll be sure to share this with them. If you’d ever like to share your ideas directly with them, please feel free to send an email to product@zenplanner.com. Thanks again!

    I too would love to give members the ability post directly to social media from the app. It would help owners spread the word and easy for us who are involved with sweat Angels

      Hi Alan, great idea! Our Product team has plans to add some exciting social features to the app early next year. Stay tuned to our blog for details!

      Hi Aaron, it will be available on both Android and Apple devices.

    Hi there- When will this app go live and I assume we will be notified.

    • Tiffany Houkom December 21, 2015 at 11:24 pm - Reply

      Hi Jordan, the app will go live in early January. We will be sending out emails to our current customers when the app is available for download, and will also make an announcement on our blog and social channels. We will be sure to spread the word everywhere we can 🙂

    Linked to website blog so once I type into squarespace.com I don’t have to again through Zen planner. Social sharing as everyone else has stated.

    Hi, Is it possible to push messages to the members? And is this only possible for the staff members?

    • Kinnick Wheaton December 28, 2015 at 6:58 pm - Reply

      Hello Alexander,

      In the first version of the app you will not be able to push messages to your members through this app. The Zen Planner solution has other automations & SMS message capability to enable quick communication to your members regarding billing, class changes or other important updates.

    Excited for this! When will this actually be available? Thanks!

    Hi, is there a way to connect the app to calendars? If I sign up for a class I’d like to be able to have quickly added to my calendar…even integration with zapier or ifttt would work.

    • Tiffany Houkom September 28, 2016 at 3:58 pm - Reply

      Hi David, you can export your calendar to your iCalendar by following these steps. We do not have an integration with Zapier at this point in time. If you have additional questions, our Customer Success team can definitely help. They can be reached by phone at (866) 541-3570 or by email at help@zenplanner.com. Have a great day!

    Hi, I’m using Zen Planner in Australia so we don’t have sms integration. Push notifications would be extremely beneficial for me.

    Is this currently being looked at? I see above that it wasn’t going to be included in first instance. Hoping it is in the future.

    • Tiffany Houkom April 12, 2017 at 1:16 pm - Reply

      Thanks for your question, Megan! This feature isn’t on our immediate roadmap, but is definitely something we’re exploring for future enhancements. I’ll be sure to pass this request along to our Product team as well. Our Customer Advocate team might be able to help you with workarounds in the meantime. Please feel free to reach out to them at help@zenplanner.com. Thanks!
