The Basics - How to use Member Manager

  • Note that there are two "menu bars" at the top of the screen below the site banner/logo. The items on the left of the upper bar (Applications, etc.) display "dropdowns" when your mouse touches them.
    • The upper menu bar "dropdowns" that become visible when your mouse touches them (see image at right) are how you get to all of the Member Manager functions.

      Your Application dropdown may not contain the same items as shown here. Which application options are shown is determined by which Groups your organization's site Administrator assigned you to and which features are turned on.
       

    • The lower menu bar: (see image above)
      • identifies the function you are using, (Member)
      • contains any status messages (Member updated successfully)
      • and, on the righthand end, contains buttons that make things happen. (Edit My Info, Help, etc.)
         
  • Move your mouse pointer over any other item on the Top Menu Bar and a list of pages (places) you can view drops down. You can quickly review your choices by moving your mouse along the Top Menu Bar looking at each dropdown.
  • To go somewhere in the site, point to an item in a drop down list and click your Left Mouse Button once.
  • There is no need to go-back if you can see the Top Menu Bar. You can always pick the next place you wish to visit from the Top Menu Bar.
  • Most functions are not complete until you press the "Submit" button which will be on the right end of the Lower Menu Bar.
