Is there going to be a feature to access cicles on a computer for those youth who do not have access to a mobile device.

I was hopeful this app would have a compelling social aspect to draw the youth to it, in addition to it being a general communication tool for all members. Where can we find good stories of how units have successfully integrated this into youth's daily lives? If the social aspect isn't going to draw them in, and as currently implemented I don't think it will (hope I'm wrong about that), I'd like to hear about examples of successful integration.

Our specialists are included in the quorum Circles, as well as advisers.

However, we switched an adviser and specialist from one YW class to another in LCR, but the change has not taken place in Circles yet (12 hours later). Will update later if they eventually do show up.

In the past, we've advised people to wait 24 hours after a calling change before getting concerned.

We were hoping to include all of our primary children’s parents and teachers in a group. Having the circles for the activity age and older is great but we still have those young ones we want to involve. So an addition to circles would be great. Even if each group only get a couple to edit as they see fit for their ward.

I recommend you provide this as feedback (see your profile on the app for the link) from the app itself. That will ensure it goes for consideration to those responsible for the programmer's priorities. You also might explain your use-case for the feature to help them understand the reason for the request.

Our elders quorum has multiple committee's, we want to make circles for each each committee+the presidency to increase the communication and awareness of how things are going.

Please add the custom circles please.

There was a notice from the church that ability to create custom circles is coming - no one knows when. Remember that this app is barely out of beta - it has lots of rough edges. Other than being patient, the best thing you can do is provide feedback from within the app on the features you desire (and a use-case for their value).

I see the advisor was automatically added to the circles but specialists were not. Can they be added? Also, is it possible to have one with the members and their parents?
