This morning, we'd like to let you know about a feature of our new website - a Membership Directory and an app for your phone or tablet.
After you have set up your account on the new website (you can start that process by clicking here), you can update your profile for the Membership Directory.
First, log into the site and select 'Membership Profile' from the 'Membership' menu. You will see a page that has this information:
Click on the grey 'Edit profile' button and you can add information to your profile like a Bio, the name of your cottage, and a photo. Make sure you hit the 'Save' button after you make any changes.
Next, you can decide what information you'd like listed about yourself in your entry for the Membership Directory. To do that, click on the 'Privacy' link. You will then see a list of 'Details to show'. Click on the grey 'Edit profile' button on this page and you will see this:
You have full control over what information is displayed in your profile listing in the Membership Directory. If you want to show a line of information, select 'Anybody' or 'Members'. If you would prefer to not show a line of information, click the 'No access' button. Be sure to again click the grey 'Save' button to save your changes.
After making and saving edits, you can view what will be shown on your profile listing in the Membership Directory by clicking on the 'My directory profile' link.
The default settings for your entry will only show your name - you will need to add information to your profile, and then decide what you'd like to share.
For example, I have added a photo, a Bio, my email address, and our camp name & address - and then I made those viewable in the directory. You can see what a profile looks like by clicking the link on my name under the title of this blog post.
You can view or search the directory by clicking on Membership Directory under the Membership menu. You must be a member and logged into the site to view this page.
Other features available here include an area where you can create a photo album, see tickets for events you have registered for (hopefully we'll be able to use that feature in 2021!), and listings of your transactions on the new site like membership payments and donations.
Website Companion App For Your Phone Or Tablet
Our new site has a companion app that you can download for your iOS or Android based phone or tablet.
The app is named for the company that hosts our new website, Wild Apricot - the app is called 'Wild Apricot For Members'. You can install it by using the links below:
Apple App Store - Wild Apricot For Members
Android Google Play Store - Wild Apricot For Members
After installing on your device, you can log in with the username and password you use for the new website.
In the app, you'll be able to search the Membership Directory, make edits to your member profile, view upcoming events, and renew your membership.
We hope you'll enjoying using these new features - and that you'll have some fun setting up your membership profile!
If you have any questions or issues, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can help you out.
We hope you are enjoying the new site!
