At Bookclubz, we’re always searching for ways to bring our communities of readers together — and continually improving our product to make it happen! Check out the latest updates we’ve introduced in July and August that we hope will improve your book club experience!

 

New! Events Calendar

Bookclubz is all about making sure you get your book club on the calendar — and now there’s a space to check out all of the great events happening in the Bookclubz community. Check out the new Events calendar for more details about upcoming author interviews and special events. Hosting an event or virtual meeting that you think would be of interest to our broader community of readers? Let us know by submitting the contact form on the page and we’ll get in touch!

New! Updated Book Detail Pages

Learning more about the books you want to read just got a refresh! Click on any title in the Bookclubz library, and you’ll be taken to the updated Book Details page for more information about the book, an easy way to add the book to your shelves, community ratings, and options to purchase. From this page, you can even recommend the book to a friend via email!

Interested in the book but in search of your book club people? If clubs from Join a Book Club are reading the title, you’ll see it here...and you can join them to read along!

New! Features for Book Club Leaders

We’ve added some upgraded features for book club admins. If you’re an admin of your club, you’ll now be able to control privacy and interaction levels in Club Settings (find the link in the club sidebar). Adjust club privacy settings, who can view member information, and who can create meetings, post messages, and create polls.

Admins can also now create categories for Messages from Club Settings. Create and add categories here that you and your club members can assign to Messages to sort and filter.

Just a note: only club admins can create categories, but any member with permissions to post messages can assign these categories to new and past messages.

 

We are always eager for feedback on how we can make the Bookclubz site and app even better! If there’s a feature you think is missing, or something that would help your club, reach out to us anytime at https://bookclubz.com/faq/#contact-us

I love these new changes! However, I was wondering if there was any mechanism to break a tie on the Bookclubz poll feature. Thanks!
