Scheduled Downtime

As BenchApp continues to grow in popularity, so does the taxation on our servers. At 9pm PST tonight (Feb 27th), we will be upgrading our servers to provide a more reliable BenchApp experience. We hope this downtime will be less than 20 minutes. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

New SMS system coming soon!

Our brand new SMS notification system is nearing completion. This will offer much more reliable notifications, and allow multiple game check-ins per day. Want to join the beta? E-mail us at beta@benchapp.com with your BenchApp e-mail address.

New and exciting features are coming!

Reminder: Update your subscribed calendar URLs

A few months back, we updated our subscribe to schedule URL format. This is to give you instant updates as soon as any changes are made to your schedule, whether they're new games, edited games, or games being removed.

Your old URL might look like this: http://www.benchapp.com/team/ical/12345.ics

The new URLs look like this: https://ics.benchapp.com/eyJwbGF5ZXJJZCI6ee3Tk5fQ

Please update your URLs as soon as possible to prevent interruption.

Push Notification Broadcasts

Along with a slew of updates and bugs fixes to the Broadcast system, we hae also just added Push Notification broadcasts for our PRO users. Now you can send a push to every player that has push notifications turned on. Any player without push enabled will be disabled on the recipient list.

More broadcast features coming soon!

New Broadcast System

We have completely re-written our Broadcast system from the ground up. And in doing so, we've doubled the number of characters you can send in your text messages. Enjoy!
