Wild Apricot News: Wild Apricot's Membership Website Builder Gives You Three Websites in One

Lori Halley 24 February 2010 0 comments

With Wild Apricot's membership website builder, you can get three different websites in one:

  • A public website that anyone can see
  • A members-only view that requires a username and password
    and
  • A secure administration view for your organization's leaders, board members, staff or anyone else who needs to edit your site or data

The public view is what anyone coming to your site will see, and can include organization news, contact information, a membership application form and any other general interest information.  You have complete control over what is shown here, and the site can be optimized so that your organization will be more easily found in Google and other search engines.

The members-only information appears once someone enters their username and password.  This can include a private member directory, meeting minutes, members-only resources, or any other information that is just for your members.  Members can also update their own contact information, eliminating the need for cumbersome administrative tasks such as processing a change of address.

The admin view is a little different.  Logging in as an administrator allows you to view or change the organization's website, member records, event details or fund raising information.  By providing remote access for board members, volunteers and staff, you eliminate the hassle of  trying to sync up information saved in multiple Excel files, emails and other places.  Administrator rights can be limited, so for example you could give permission to a volunteer who is only allowed to update the website, but would not have access to member data or other information.

These three views make Wild Apricot a powerful tool for your administrators, members, or anyone interested in your organization.
