How do I join a circle? The app didn't add me to the "Adults" circle in our ward?

Post by kristinjamison »

Great app....I'm part of the circles that pertain to my calling and my part in the RS, but it didn't add me to the "Adults" circle.....how can I remedy that? I'm getting notifications that things are being posted in that circle, but I cannot access the messages...I'm not part of the Adults circle. Please help! :)

There's an Adults circle? I didn't see one.

The app was developed primarily for the youth. RS and EQ was added later. A circle for the whole ward would make sense, but I haven't seen or heard of one.

Yes, the Adults circle has been added by the development team on March17th. I just noticed it after seeing it discussed in this thread.

Since you are getting notifications for that circle, it should be available, but you may not have joined the circle yet. Tap Circles in the menu at the bottom of the screen page. Then tap Unit Circles in the OTHER CIRCLES group below the list of circles in JOINED CIRCLES group. The list of available circles for your unit will be listed. Do you see the Adults circle listed there? (They are listed alphabetically and should be at the top of the list.) Since I am a default administrator due to my calling I can't tell you how to join the circle exactly. But I suspect if you tap the circle you want to join you will be able to join somehow on that screen.

If you are still having problems finding or joining the circle, then contact your ward clerk. He is an administrator for that circle. He will also be able to look into issues.

I don't see any of this. I've tried various things to refresh and check for any filtering. I'm running 1.1.5 on Android and there's nothing showing as newer in the Play store.

What do you see after tapping Circles on the menu bar?

So you do not see the OTHER CIRCLES group? Since I have a long list of circles in my JOINED CIRCLES group I have to scroll down the page. But since you only have a few circles in the JOINED CIRCLES group it should be visible without scrolling.

Sounds like a bug. Send feedback.

Sent. But it's possible it's being rolled out by units. And maybe I can't see an "OTHER" until there's something to show. At this point, I've joined everything I can join.

I suppose I can leave all circles, but I'm not sure as I could get back in based on the other messages I've seen here.
