Help us to develop a VOICE app

Yes, you heard us right... It's a key part of our digital strategy, and something that we have been thinking about for years; now we are in a position to start developing a VOICE app! A VOICE app will make it easier than ever for you to hear about, and get involved in, the research and innovation projects that you know and love. Just as our digital platform was co-designed with VOICE members to ensure that it meets your needs, we would really like your help in identifying the features you want to see in the app, so please do tell us by posting your ideas. We're interested to know...

  • Which existing features on the website would you like to be included?
  • Are there any new features you can think of that would like to see?
  • What type of notifications would you like to receive via the app?
  • Would it be helpful if the app linked to your phone or tablet’s functionality, e.g. calendar and maps

This challenge is just the first step in the co-design process, so watch out for further opportunities to influence the development of the VOICE app.

Can't remember if I've replied....oh dear....! I like notifications about upcoming meetings that I've signed up for, even if they are sent by text, that would be really useful. A week before and a day or two before sound good for me (and option to put details into calendar with call details/map (if we ever get out!)
