• Build custom annual conference mini-apps — everything from registrations to schedules to digital poster halls to automated feedback forms and certificates.

All with mobile notifications so your members will never miss an update again.

Download the MedAll app

The easiest way to build and manage your mini-app on MedAll is with the app. You and your members can download the app for free from the Apple iOS or Android app store.

Invite your members

To give your members access to your society's mini-app you will need to invite them to it.

You can do that by:

  • Adding their emails using the "invite" feature

  • Sharing the link with them and they can request to join your community on MedAll.

When you set up your mini-app, you can choose to make it public so the content you add is available to everyone, or private for your members only. You can also make specific resources available to everyone or members only.

Build a mini-app for your society

As well as a dedicated conference mini-app, you can also build a Members mini-app on MedAll to streamline your member communication all year round, including mentoring scheme details, teaching sessions, guidelines and statements, grants, awards, social communities and more — all with app notifications so your members will never miss an update again.

📣 Send notifications to your members

With the MedAll Apple iOS & Android app you can keep members up to date with notifications straight to their phones. No more clunky email threads or messy WhatsApp conversations.

Notify members about:

  • New teaching sessions

  • Conference updates

  • New guidelines

  • Surveys

  • Position statements or documents

And anything that is important to your organisation. Your members will never miss an important update again.

📋 Add resources to your member mini-app

Mini-apps on MedAll are a flexible and fully customisable area where you can easily store and share all the files, links and documents that are important to your society — from guidelines to slides to mentoring scheme details. You have unlimited file storage and can organise your resources flexibly into folders to suit your society.

A few examples

  • Add mentoring scheme details

  • Share information about grants, awards and bursaries

  • Add videos, slides and handouts

  • Share statements and guidelines

  • Details of QI and Audit opportunities

When you add a file, document or link you can choose whether to make it public and available to anyone on MedAll or Private and just available to your members.


To help your members find the most important information you can use our handy Spotlight feature that allows you to add quick shortcuts to folders and files.

💬 Keep the conversation alive with Threads

Threads allows you to create your very own social community for your association or society. Threads can be open access or members-only allowing you to communicate directly with your members, followers or the global community on MedAll and giving you the power to grow your engagement.

Share ideas, collaborate, discuss topics, and ask the difficult questions that are important to your association or society. Easily notify members of new threads or comments. No more messy chat groups!

In a MedAll Live event you can even convert Q&A to a dedicated thread to keep the conversation alive (Learn more here).

Some great thread topics we’ve seen:

  • Opportunities for Paediatric Surgical Research in the USA: Who's Interested?

  • How are you implementing the latest Asthma guidelines in your department?

  • Who's Attending the European Society of Cardiology? Best sessions for trainees?

  • Looking for an Oncology Mentor: Any tips?

  • Who is going to regional teaching this week? Can we do a car-share?

  • Referral pathway: does anyone know how we refer to orthopaedics here?
