Advanced Search Options

You can choose to add one or more of the following to your advanced search for your directory:

  • Category
  • Cities
  • States/Provinces
  • Country
  • Directory Parameters
  • User Defined Fields (UDFs) from member records

By extending Membee’s powerful member’s categorization features (UDFs) to your member directory, you extend the same powerful filtered capabilities, you enjoy in Membee to site visitors searching your directory. This makes it very easy for site visitors to find a specific group of members that meet a more refined search criteria.

Advanced search options makes it a lot easier for your members to narrow down exactly what they are looking for!

For example in the screenshot above a member narrowed their search for “banks” down to the Chicago area only, so they only had to sift through 6 results, as shown in the screenshot directly above and directly below.

What is Responsive Design?

Responsive design means that your website and all of its features work on your pc, tablet and mobile device by adjusting the content to fit the screen that it is being viewed in.

The benefits of having this are:

  • No added cost; all the widgets are already included as part of your subscription cost
  • No need for an App to be designed
  • You can maintain on the website

To enhance the visitor experience, your entire website should use a responsive design. If you would like to learn more about responsive design, here’s a link that contains some great information:

Mobile Friendly Design

With Membee’s Directory widget being responsive, and your website now too, any visitor that is accessing your New Member sign-up page can use their PC, tablet or smartphone to do so. This makes it substantially easier for visitors of your site to become full blown members!

In short, Membee’s New Member widget now simply adjusts to the size of the screen the visitor is using. The great thing about responsive design is that you maintain everything in one spot – you don’t need to develop or maintain a mobile site or app. Having a single website that works everywhere offers significant savings over creating multiple native mobile apps and provides your visitor with a great experience.
