Your very own app, for iOS and Android.
Give your users an app that's all their own. Every MilkCrate app is customized to reflect your brand's colors, style and images.
Your users get a seamless on-brand experience without the large upfront expense of a made-to-order app.
First-time user onboarding screens
Your users will be greeted with customized screens telling them about the app you have created for them and why they should be excited to use it. Every client gets to pick how many screens they have and what goes on them - including sponsored content if you have corporate partners.
Customized Home Screen
The Home page of your app is the place all your users will visit first - so make the most of it! Here you can highlight upcoming events, sponsored content, and links to your app features (like maps and calendar). With our customizable call-to-action buttons you can have as many as you want.
Fun and Games (and Impact!)
Promote friendly competition between your users with a game-based interface. Every user earns points for doing activities. The leaderboard allows you to track who's most active.
We also provide every client with a ready-made metrics display to share your progress with stakeholders. It is your own branded web page that updates in near-real time.
Send your members instant, customizable push notifications, or schedule them in advance.
Segment your users into different groups - this way you can share different content with each team.
You can divide people based any way you want like:
and many other things!
Pick which one makes sense for your users. And then they can earn points and compete! You can see how each group performs over time.
Ask a Poll Question
Ask your users questions about anything - like; "How often do you want to attend our events?" They love to answer because they can see how they compare to others. It's behavioral economics at it's most effective.
A calendar with event details makes it easy for users to sign up and add events to their own calendar. Even better, we can autofill your calendar with relevant events through an API if you want. Just ask!
Link To External Content
Want your users to engage with content outside the app like external fundraising websites, services, or other media? Easy! Just make a link. It's all tracked by clicks in your data displays.
Create your own map for users to explore and check in at places that matter to your organization! GPS verifies when users earn points for going to a business, park, library, or other locations you choose.
Text & Articles
If you have a lot of written things like articles, recipes, instructions or ideas you want people to read then you can make that an activity too!
Choose new content for your users, and when they see it. As users engage with new activities, you can watch the points they earn add up on your dashboard.
Build Your Mission Wheel
Your organization has an overarching mission - and usually it involves getting lots of people to do lots of activities that can be broken down into 3-6 main categories. That's why we make it easy to categorize all those activities and have them all add up over time - so you and your users can see the progress you are making
The joy users feel when using your app and helping move the mission forward is often enough to keep people excited and coming back. But it can be a nice extra treat to turn those points into tangible rewards. This is a great chance to engage a corporate sponsor to provide gifts or incentives. Rewards are totally up to you and optional.
Have videos you want people to see? Post them in the app and they will. Pretty simple right?
When creating your account as a user, you can share demographic information such as gender, race, and ethnicity with the rest of your community.
As an administrator, you can set specific time frames for users to earn points - this allows new users the chance to ‘catch up’ with other users in terms of earning points if you are using competition in your app.
Users can leave comments and feedback on their experiences for many types of challenges. For place based ones they can even create a star review just like Yelp.
Unlike the ‘action feature,’ admins can also choose to create ‘countable actions’ where users are asked to report how many of something they’ve done. For example, “How many hours did you volunteer?” or “How many new people did you bring to the event?” or “How many sculptures did you sketch today?”
These customizable buttons allow you to focus users on specific things on the home page - you can have a bunch of little ones or a few big ones, as many as you want!
