Be sure to say "OK" to Push Notifications to get important association wide updates and the opportunity to select center notifications regarding class schedule changes, upcoming events and facility statuses.
Why opt-in? Notifications provide you the opportunity to receive accurate up-to-date information right at your fingertips. This initial opt-in will allow us to alert you to all Greater Green Bay YMCA emergency facility closings as well as upcoming holiday closings, changes in facility hours and facility closings due to scheduled maintenance.
You can also choose to receive immediate communication from each center in the following areas: Child Care, General, Programs and Schedules. You can select multiple centers and options!
Be sure to go to the Preferences menu, select your desired location(s) and toggle on which notification types you'd like to receive (it defaults all locations/types to OFF). See the Updating Preferences section below for additional direction and examples on what these notifications may include.
Additionally, you can set up how you'd like to receive your notifications in your device settings. Learn about setting up notifications on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch or setting up notifications on Android devices.
When prompted with Allow "Greater Green Bay YMCA" to access your location while you use the app? be sure to select Allow.
Selecting allow will provide the proximity from your current location to each of our Greater Green Bay YMCA centers. You can view this information by selecting the Locations icon on the main menu bar.
When you first open the app your home screen will default to our Broadview location and will be displayed at the top of the screen. To view an alternate location, select the arrow by the location and select the desired center from the dropdown menu.
Schedules are now viewed on one user-friendly landing page, shown by center! The default view will now include all Group Exercise, Active Older Adult (AOA), Mind & Body, Pool, Gym, Youth & Family and Kids Korner (Child Watch) schedules for the current day. *If a time slot is not listed, the area is being utilized for classes or programs. If you had our previous app, you'll notice that you will now see class descriptions (by selecting the down arrow) as well as a calendar icon to conveniently add classes or open swim and gym time right from the app to your personal calendar.
Easily transition to view days and dates with the calendar view! The app will default to today’s date when opened. To view other days, simply select the day/date in the calendar across the top of the app. To view additional dates, swipe the calendar left/right. New September 2016 - Swipe the schedule left/right to navigate through days!
Customize your search with new filters! Select the drop-down menus under the calendar to filter by center Area (location in the center), Time (morning, midday, evening) or Class (class, activity or open time). You can select multiple choices on each of these filters and click Done to save the filter. To change filters, simply select the filter dropdown and uncheck/check desired item(s) or choose Any. If you have filtered your search, it will save the Time and Class filters if you select a new location (the Area will reset, as they change by center). New December 2016 - You can now filter by class type! The class type breaks all classes down into six types: Cardio, Dance, Mind & Body, Strength, Specialty and Water.
