First of all, I’d like to thank everyone for being the early users and beta users of ChamberForge. As for a quick update, we just released the ChamberForge mobile apps a few weeks ago and are beta testing it with a group. We are working out bugs and issues with this group before making the apps available to other groups.
We have received a lot of feedback on both the web app as well as the mobile apps and we are finalizing the requirements for the next release of ChamberForge. Below is list of new features and updates that will be included in the next release:
- Allow referrals/1-to-1s/business closed to be edited
- Send group e-mail
- Minor user interface improvements
Click here to check out the prototype of next release of the app.
- Referral/1-to-1/business closed – add ability to include/tag non-members
- Make member 2 field optional when creating 1-to-1
- Add ability to set quota requirement for referrals/1-to-1
- Add quota report
We also received feedback that there should be a workflow for referrals. Workflow will allow referrals to be better tracked so that groups can identify which referrals converted into business and those that did not. We are looking into how to build the workflow and will let everyone know when it will be available – it should be in one of next few releases.
If you have any questions or further feedback, or if I missed anything, please feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or use below to leave comments.
Below are some screenshots from the prototype showing upcoming changes:
I built ChamberForge in 2017 when I helped launch a referral networking group at a local chamber of commerce in Virginia. Our mission is to help business networking groups as well as small businesses easily share and track referrals with each other.
