Team

Rename teams to better match your memberships

When we released Teams for Memberships, we knew that there was a need to sell membership access to large organizations. Since then, we’ve heard from many merchants who sell team memberships to all sorts of groups where the term “team” doesn’t quite apply, such as schools, families, clubs, and companies—just to name a few! To make sure that your group memberships match your site’s brand and your membership target audience, we’ve introduced a setting that…

Create a member home page with Memberships blocks

Here’s an Ask SkyVerge question we’ve heard from lots of Memberships users: When a member logs in, how can I redirect them to a custom member home page instead of the WooCommerce account page? This has been a popular request for some time, but wasn’t feasible for us to address since members can belong to multiple plans. How would Memberships know which page to send a user to when they belonged to multiple plans? It’d…
