Does what I need, a little clunky

The app manages appointments, tells you how long until you can donate and has an FAQ section. The appointment management section was the most important for me. It does the job well. I think the interface with Microsoft is a little clunky and you get alpha-numeric keyboards where it’s clear that only numbers are required, etc. but these are mainly polish considerations. Overall works well and I’m pleased I can use my phone to manage my appointments now!

We appreciate your feedback, Tazzae, thanks for passing it on! We love that you are able to manage your appointments with ease through our app, and look forward to seeing you at a donor centre soon. Our login and registration process is through Microsoft Azure, as it offers a high standard of security compliance, and the keyboard used in this instance should be your device’s default keyboard. We will be certain to pass on your feedback for a keyboard dedicated to the appropriate fields to our app developers. Thank you for your ongoing, life-saving support! – Blood Service App Team

At Brays Bay Reserve, Concord Rd, Rhodes NSW 2138 ( Mobile service)

My husband booked an appointment online and went there for donation this afternoon. Everyone greeted us well until he had to sit down and filled up form again.
My husband’s english is not very good so I helped him to understand well few questions to answer himself correctly. The manager (I guess) has stopped me for doing that.

After completing the form, my husband was asked for his weights, I reminded him to remember his weights correctly and she immediate became annoyed and ridiculous about my husband's inability to answer it himself. Before that she asked my husband, "Do you understand English, can you answer it yourself" in a blatant, scornful way that make us feel uncomfortable and inhibited. She then asked my husband to go to her own room to talk, she asked my husband why he did not answer himself but had to let me do it. My husband said, my wife repeated your question, not answered, and I answered you my weights already. Finally she said my husband did not understand English, so the yes/no questions answered dishonestly and came to a conclusion to cancel my husband's blood donation schedule.

Dear friend,
We are here to help not to due with racialism.

Next time Red Cross should put down in their policy that:
- You Must able to speak English to be a donator. ✅ Yes ❌ No

We are sorry to hear that your recent experience was not a positive one, so that we can look into the specific circumstances of your husband’s appointment, we would encourage you to email support@redcrossblood.org.au.

A good start

I like that it has our donor card in it. So does that mean we don’t need to bring it when we donate? Both times I’ve logged in I’ve had to verify my account by having a number sent to my phone- will this happen every time I log in? Very tedious if so. The app doesn’t include health statistics like in our online accounts. Maybe in a future version you can let Apple users log in with their finger print or face ID.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. This first release of our app focuses on appointment bookings only. We are currently looking into including health statistics, along with other great features including fingerprint. As soon as we have them ready we will be releasing new updates.
