We would strongly recommend that potential purchasers of Wild Apricot service review some of Wild Apricot’s online help pages before committing to developing their next site there. It just makes sense to get an idea of how to use the online help pages, because at some point you are going to need them; and it can give you a sense of where limitations may be with Wild Apricot, particularly in how the software may mesh with the assumptions that may be made by your organization.

We would strongly recommend that an association have their accounting department have some input on how they would like to use Wild Apricot.
