User Group Locator: New, Easy to Use and Ready For Updates

The User Group Locator has been updated with new, easy to use, features. In the past, many groups found it hard to remember a seldom-used Locator password and found it harder to leave sole responsibility for updates to a single person.

Now, each group can now update its records by entering the email address originally used to register the group. The system then returns a link for database access. For groups who have changed their primary email accounts, the system permits the update in the form of a new record.

Better yet, the new forms are shorter and ask for less information. All changes are reviewed by the Apple User Group Advisory Board Locator team and changes appear publicly approximately one month after the group has updated the information.

Is your group’s information current?
