Maybe you use only a few reports from the billing area and you would like to create your own menu. Maybe you use several outside tools that you would like to store in your main dashboard... well here is the solution when you are using our latest menu.
Easy to Activate
Simply go into your CONFIGURATION AREA then choose MAIN MENU to turn this service on and to set it up.
Please contact support to have this feature enabled (Service Fee $20/Month for most texting requirements). When enabled you can access texting in Communications from your Admin Functions Menu. This service uses the mobile numbers in your Member Database. You can add recipients like you do for Broadcast Email Messages, choose from member plan, communication preference, project/committee, registered for event, etc.
From you Admin Functions Menu > Click on Communication and then Text Messages.
Click on 'Send New Message'
Enter the 'subject' and 'message' of the text, select if you want to use your member database or event registrations for recipients, and then the date and time the message is to be sent. Make sure to click 'continue'
On the recipient page, you can choose a member type, or communication preference to receive the message. You can also select a project/committee, registered for Event and other filters from your system.
On the 'Results' page you can view the status of each text as well as any response that was sent.
We have a new menu option that we call MENU OPTION 4. It includes the updated administrative area and an all new members area. If you would like your system look updated like this, please submit a support ticket and we be glad to make the change.
The Job Board module allows for the posting of job opportunities by employers. These opportunities are then searchable by members. Members (candidates), can post their resume and indicate their interest in employment, and also searchable by employers.
To get started, you will need to enter some info:
To be able to post a job, a user (member) must be connected to an employer. When a user wants to be connected to an employer, they first go to the job board after logging in, and then click on the employer option, and then request access. From there, they can create a new employer or request to be connected to an existing employer. If they request to be connected to an existing employer, this option will send an email to the job board manager. The job board manager can then go into the admin area, and look for the user under the given employer and approve the request by clicking on the approve link, or they can reject it by clicking on the 'remove' link.
Employers are typically members of the association, but need not be. If you would like to allow for non-member employers. Please contact tech support, we can enable a special record type ("J") such that users granted access under this record type may log-in to the members area, but will only have access to the job board. There is also an employer sign-up feature, that allows someone to register as a non-member employer, and post jobs.
Once a user has access to the job board as an employer, they can start posting jobs. They will need to enter a job name, description, skills required, location info, contact info, and an expiration date. Once posted, it will be available for job seekers in the system to find it via search.
Searching Job Seekers
Employers can search through job seekers and review their resume's. The search feature will allow for searches on keywords, education level, and skills acquired.
Job seekers (typically members), who want to use the job board can do so by using the search feature. From search, they can find jobs by keyword, by education level required, or by skills required.
If the Job seeker wants to be found by potential employers, they will want to update their profile. This will allow them to list the type of position they are looking for, what skills they have acquired, and they will be able to upload a resume.
If a job seeker does not want to be found by employers (or by a specific employer), they will want to use the privacy settings. There are three privacy options:

Engineering just finished with this calendar update - great idea from Isaac with the Yorba Linda Chamber. In the global calendar config there is a new option under the calendar specific settings called 'Format 6c Responsive - Add Event Summary to Top of Event List'. If enabled it will add a summary of event dates and names to the top of the event listing on that calendar and clicking on any of them will open their more info page in a new tab.
The following short video shows you how it looks and where to turn it on.
We appreciate your membership with the ____________________ Chamber of Commerce. We want you to know there are several ways you can optimize your return on membership by following this list.

When you are in the "Advanced Broadcast Messaging" system creating both broadcast messages and newsletters (don't use the older newsletter editor anymore if at all possible) you will see the ROWS TAB.

We have just released a new feature that allows Membership Add-Ons to have variable amounts. In addition to the "Checkbox" and "Numeric" options, you can now select "Variable Price". This allows the member to type in how much they want to pay for this add-on when they join or renew.
This feature is ideal for donations, particularly if the organization wants to solicit members to donate to multiple campaigns/funds when they sign up or renew.
A few notes of caution:
Please let support know if you have any questions on this new feature, or if you run into any problems.
