To download the Wild Apricot iOS app for administrators, tap on the image below:
Only full or read-only administrators, membership managers, event managers, or donation managers can log into the Wild Apricot app. After logging in, the options available to them will depend on their administrator permissions. For example, a membership manager will not see the Events tab.
You can log into your Wild Apricot account using the email address associated with your Wild Apricot account, or using your Facebook credentials – assuming you are using the same email address for a Wild Apricot administrator account.
If you are already logged into Facebook using the email address associated with your Wild Apricot site, tapping the Log in with Facebook button will automatically log you into your Wild Apricot account.
When logging using your email address, enter your email address and password, then tap the Log in button.
Currently, you cannot restore your password from the Wild Apricot app. If you do not remember your password, go to the Login screen on the browser version of your Wild Apricot account and click the Forgot password link next to the Login button. On the page that appears, you can enter your email address to receive a reset password link via email.
If you're not familiar with what the Wild Apricot mobile app can do, tap Learn more from the Login screen.
If there are multiple Wild Apricot accounts associated with your email address and password, you will be asked – after logging in – to choose the organization you want to manage at the moment.
You can switch to a different association later from the Account screen.
Navigating the app
The Wild Apricot app consists of a number of modules: Contacts, Events, Account, and Help. To jump between the Contacts and Events modules, tap the module name at the bottom of the screen.
To access any of these modules, swipe from left to right and chose from the options that appear.
Within the Contacts module, you view and manage members and other contacts.
What can't you do with contacts?
- You cannot create or modify member groups
- You cannot perform advanced searches
- You cannot modify previously saved searches
- You cannot view invoice or payment details
- You cannot delete invoices or payments
- You cannot accept online credit card payments
To jump to the Contacts module, tap Contacts at the bottom of the screen.
The Contacts module groups your contacts by categories onto different tabs.
From the General tab, you can view the contacts you've opened most recently, view all contacts, view all members, or view archived members.
On the other tabs within the Contacts module, contacts are grouped by saved contact and member searches, membership levels, and member groups.
At the top of the Contacts module, the total number of contacts is displayed. You can tap this number to display a list of all contacts, or you can swipe left to view the number of members, then the number of new members (those added over the last month).
Tapping one of the contact categories will display the contacts grouped under that category.
For each contact, their name, email, organization, and membership level is displayed. An orange chevron indicates that the contact is an administrator. A red notice will appear for any contact who has an outstanding financial or membership issue requiring attention – such as an outstanding invoice or a pending application requiring approval.
To view all the details for a contact, tap their name within the list. Within the contact details, their profile, event registrations, and financial transactions appear on different tabs.
On the Events tab, you can tap an event registration to view or modify the event registration details.
On the Finances tab, invoices and payments are listed. At the top of the Finances tab appears the contact's balance due or overpaid amount, and the number of open invoices. You can record a manual payment against one or more open invoices. Payments and settled invoices are displayed in gray. You cannot currently view the details of a payment or settled invoice.
Searching for contacts
To search for contacts, tap within the search box on a contact list then enter a search string. After you tap the search button, the current list will be filtered by the search string.
Any contact whose name, organization, or email address includes the search string will be displayed. To remove the search filter, tap Cancel.
Modifying members and contacts
To modify the contact details for a member or other contact, tap Edit button from the tab containing the information you want to change.
From the Profile tab, you can modify any of the contact field values, or membership details including level, status, and renewal due, and set administrative privileges.
From the Events tab, you can tap an event registration to view or modify event registration details.
Unpaid registration fees will appear in red. For more information, see Viewing and modifying a registration (below).

Suspending a member or archiving a contact
You can suspend a member or archive a contact by tapping the Suspend or Archive button at the very bottom of their Profile tab.
Suspending a member will convert the member to a non-member contact. Archiving a contact will remove the contact from your regular contact lists. The archived contact will not receive automatic emails or email blasts, and will no longer count towards your database limit. When you archive a contact who is a member, their membership will be automatically suspended.
Suspending or archiving a bundle administrator will automatically suspend or archive all the members in that bundle.
After archiving a contact, you can restore the contact by tapping the Restore button at the top of their Profile tab.
To restore the membership of a suspended member, tap the Resume button at the top of their Profile tab.
Adding a new member or contact
To add a new member or other contact, tap the plus sign at the top of the main Contacts screen.
On the New contact screen, you can enter contact details, and optionally, select a membership level.
To create a new contact record, you need to complete one of the following fields: First name, Last name, Email, or Organization.
If you assign a membership level that charges a fee and select a pending membership status, an invoice will be automatically generated. You can delete invoices only from the browser version of Wild Apricot.
Approving or rejecting pending memberships
Where the membership status is pending – Pending - New, Pending - Renewal, or Pending - Level change – a button will appear, along with the pending membership details.
Tapping this button will display a number of options, including the ability to approve or reject the pending membership.
The options available depend on whether the membership fee has been paid (or is not required), and whether an invoice has been generated.
|Fee has been paid (or is not required)||Approve, Reject|
|Fee not paid, invoice generated||Activate without payment, Record payment, Reject|
|Fee not paid, no invoice||Activate without invoice, Generate invoice, Reject|
Paying an outstanding invoice
If a contact has an unpaid balance, the amount will be appear in red beside their name in contact lists and event registration lists. Using the Wild Apricot app, you can record a manual payment toward the balance.
To record a manual payment towards an outstanding invoice, go to the Finance tab for the contact, then tap the Pay button beside the invoice you want to pay .
On the Record payment screen that appears, you can enter the amount of the payment, select a payment tender, enter a comment for the payer, and record any internal notes. Once you are finished recording the payment, tap Save.
If you have set up the Square POS app for use with Wild Apricot, you can click the Use SquareUp button to process a credit card payment for this invoice.
After you click the Use SquareUp button, you will be asked for permission to open the Square Point of Sale app. From the Point of Sale app, you enter the credit card number or use the card reader to swipe the card. Once you complete the transaction within the Point of Sale app, you will be returned to your Wild Apricot app, and the payment details will be recorded in your Wild Apricot account. Within the payment details, the Square Up transaction ID will be recorded in the internal notes.
