TAPS Military Mentors Mobile App
TAPS is excited to offer Military Mentors a secure way to build relationships, keep training lessons at hand and provide updated information. We designed a special “app within an app” for our Good Grief Camp Military Mentor community.
The system will work just like our normal event apps, but will be created within our larger event app as an event exclusively for Military Mentors and TAPS staff moderators. You will find downloads of training information, motivational pictures and can use the activity feed to stay in touch with other Military Mentors and learn from them. We have added topic channels for areas of interest and other new ways to learn and stay connected. During each regional or national seminar event specific logistic and schedule details will be available for military mentors attending those events. As the app grows and more volunteers participate, we will continue to add new resource features and ways to connect.
We are adding military mentors on a rolling basis. You will soon receive a special invite via email with the password to join the Military Mentor event. Remember, this group is only open to approved Military Mentors who have passed their background check. We want you to have a safe place to talk and share about your experience as Good Grief Camp Military Mentor for TAPS.
How to Download the App
The app is now available on iOS and Android devices and can be downloaded in the App Store and Google Play store by searching “TAPS Events." The app will move up in rankings as more people search for it, but if you don't see it at the top of your search results, just scroll down and look for TAPS Events.
Security Verification & Access
New this year is the 2-step security verification, which requires an individual email and password for each adult user. The password will be emailed to military mentors registered for 2017/2018 events and past military mentors. If you think you should have access to the app and haven’t received an invite by December 1, 2017 please fill out this quick access request form. TAPS staff will update your record and confirm your access to the mobile app as quickly as possible--usually within two business days.
What’s my Username & Password
The password for the 2017 Good Grief Camp MIlitary Mentor app will be directly sent via email invitation to newly registered military mentor volunteers. Your username is the email you used to register. If you previously downloaded the app for another event, you will continue to use the first password you were assigned. If you forgot your password, email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Once you’ve downloaded the TAPS Event app, you’ll see a list of events for which you are registered and authorized to access. Select the "2017 GGC Mentor Training & Community" event. If you are a new app user, you will be prompted to enter your email and password to gain access to the event information.
Setting Up Your Profile
You can immediately set up your profile (click top left corner), add a photo and link your social media accounts. Our social feeds for comments using #hopehelpheal, #gratefulnation and #tapsfam will pull directly into the mobile app and users can post from the app directly to their social media accounts.
The app puts the GGC schedule and other logistic details right at your fingertips. It also recognizes super users and influencers. Be sure to check the leaderboard for your progress.
How long will the app be live?
Each event app is “LIVE” for one year after the event and you can continue to connect and offer support to each other via the event’s activity feed long after we’ve all returned home.
For any questions or technical support before or during the event, please email email@example.com.
