Spaces App: How Members Use the App

5 min read
Spaces by Wix is an app for your members to engage with your business and online community. 

The app helps your members interact with their favorite sites, receive important updates, and keep track of their personal activity (e.g. bookings, programs, or upcoming events). They can also can also book services, buy products, invite others to join, chat, read your blog, and more. 
In this article, learn how your members can:

Joining a site

There are 2 ways for people to become members of a site:

Join with an invite code

Visitors can join your site through the Spaces app using a unique invite code which you, the site owner, provides them with. 
If they don't have an invite code, app members can tap Search sites at the bottom to search for your site.

Invite others to join

Existing site members can share the experience by inviting others to become part of your community.

If invitees don't have the Spaces app, they'll be directed to download the app from the invite link. From there, they can join and be taken directly to your site.

Managing their sites on the app

When members open the Spaces app, they see their site list (sites they are members of). They can prioritize their favorites by pinning them to the top and hide less frequented sites. They can also adjust notification preferences and opt out of sites they wish to leave

Organize their site list

Members can organize their home screen by pinning favorite sites to the top, hiding infrequently visited ones, and leaving sites they no longer wish to be part of.

Search for sites

Members can use the search bar at the top of the Spaces app to find a site they're a member of or interested in. They can search by name, URL, sites they've interacted with, or been invited to in the past.

As a site owner, you can help people discover your site by enabling the site search feature from your dashboard or the Wix Owner app. 

Manage their notification settings

Members can personalize their notification preferences by selecting between push notifications or email. They can also specify the types of notifications they wish to receive, such as general announcements, updates, or reminders.

  • To chat with your site visitors, you must have the Wix Chat app installed on your site.
  • Group chat is only available for your members if you've added a Blog or a Forum to your site, and have Members Chat enabled. 

Viewing their activity

Once a member books a service, RSVPs to an event, or purchases a paid plan, their activity is logged under My Profile   in the Spaces app.
Members can then access their upcoming classes, appointments, events, orders, and subscriptions by tapping an option under My Activity to manage their engagements.
