When you log on to your site, you accomplish several things:
These are all functions of the OurGroupOnline security system.
- The system verifies that you are authorized to access confidential information about your group.
- You identify yourself to the site, so it can display information specific to you.
- The menu is customized to contain only those functions for which you are authorized.
Every member of your group should be assigned a unique User ID and Password when you create their record in the Active Members table.
Each User ID is linked to that member's account. This allows the system to display information specific to that person in the My Stuff menu.
Each User ID is also linked to specific User Roles.
These roles determine what functions this user will see on his or her menu.
If you are your group's Site Administrator, you are responsible for assigning Roles to each member.
You can do this from the User IDs and Passwords page.
Be generous! The more members that can do a particular function, the more likely it is to get done.
