RunMyVillage User Talk - 3 PM ET/ 2PM CT/ 1 PM MT/ 12PM PT
January’s VtV RMV Users Talk is about making RunMyVillage’s Service Module easier to use while maintaining the capabilities that Villages value today. This session follows up on the October and November User Talks when Dan Ehrmann asked for recommendations for “how to simplify things to make RMV more approachable.”
Over the ten+ years since ClubExpress first built the Services extensions for Aging-in-Place Villages, they have been adding functionality at Villages’ request. However, with all the added features, the module is not as intuitive to understand or easy to use as it was initially. CE/RMV management has developed a number of ideas about how to make the Services module easier to use and less complex. CE/RMV has requested that we set up this User Talk to ask our Villages about these ideas – what would be improvements…what should be Village options rather than shown on the screen for every Village…how best to implement possible changes.
So, this session will be a discussion between CE/RMV and our Villages. CE/RMV will describe possible improvements and ask Villages for our comments. It is important that we have a wide range of Villages at this session - different Villages use different features and, sometimes, use the same features in different ways – a feature that is unimportant to other Villages, may be very important to your Village.
CE/RMV expects to have a developer working on the resulting ideas in the spring.
We expect those most interested in this session will be people from your Village who are frequent users of the Service Module features, your users who have thoughts on making RMV easier to use or less complex (infrequent users, heavy users, and everyone in between might benefit from ideas to make RMV simpler to user while continuing to have its rich set of features available), and your Village Technology staff. Please invite anyone from your Village who you think might be interested.
Please register through the Village to Village Network website’s Calendar.
Also, we ask people from your Village to sign up for our VtV RMV Users Group Forum on the VtV Website – this is the primary way the Users Group communicates to Villages using RunMyVillage. If you have not yet become a member of the Forum, please do so through (1) signing up through your Profile on the VtV site or (2) sending us a note at RMVusers@vtvnetwork.org.
