Wir nutzen das Plugin auf unserer Vereins-Homepage. Mitglieder haben damit automatisch Zugriff auf den Mitgliederbereich und haben nicht “noch einen” Login. Auch beim Austritt, müssen wir den Account nicht manuell sperren, da das Plugin automatisch den Login verhindert. Die Installation hat super geklappt und war aufgrund der Infos in der Plugin-Konfiguration leicht verständlich. Den benötigten AppKey haben wir innerhalb weniger Stunden vom Vereinsflieger-Support erhalten.
