The latest addition to the new Colorado Springs Quakers website has been completed! The addition of the Community Builder component has allowed us to create a member database that will achieve to important goals:
1) The definition of members who will be allowed access to areas of the website unaccessible by public viewers such as internal member-only news, meeting minutes, and committee reports. Registered users (members) will also be allowed to submit news, calendar events and weblinks that can be reviewed and published by the site administrators.
2) Community Builder allows us to display a membership directory to our registered members. Assuming our members provide their information, the list will provide names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses. This information is also inaccessible to the general public, so only our fellow members will be able to view it.
We have disabled user registration however, considering that we want to limit our registered users to only members of the Colorado Springs Religious Society of Friends. As we move forward we will populate the member list from the administrator's side in order to get it started, but from there members will be able to login and manage their own profiles.
We will let everyone know as we add them to the registered user list. Keep an eye on your inbox!
