The Membership Directory allows you to share information about your members with the public or with other members of your organization/association. There are two version of the directory and using the settings on this page you are able to customize both versions. The two versions are call the “Public Directory” and the “Member Only Directory”.


 

The ”Public Directory” is meant to be shared with everyone and can easily be embedded on to your website or elsewhere online. Before publishing this directory there are some settings that you will need to be aware of. Please see the descriptions of those fields below:

 

Online directory requires authentication? - When set to YES, this field will require the user to be logged into the Portal before they are able to access the membership directory. In other words this will eliminate the directory being public as only those with a portal login and an active membership will be able to access the directory.

Show Committees on online directory – When set to YES, this field will allow for Constituent Committees to appear on the membership directory to allow for people to filter the results using those Committees.

 

Use Display for Membership Level – When set to YES, this will allow you to select by field which Members Levels this information should display for. This setting will only apply for the List View version of the Membership Directory but will allow you to customize what information is shared based on what Membership Level a member is enrolled in.

 

After the completion of those setting you will come to dropdown titled, “Public Directory Layout”. This picklist will allow you to select how the member information should be displayed on the Public version of the directory. Your options are “List View”, which is the default and “Card View”.
