Member Directory

How do I use the Dashboard?

The home page of your online directory is called the Dashboard. This page shows you several different pieces of information at a glance.

  • A list of recent updates to the directory.
  • A list of upcoming birthdays.
  • A map of everyone in the directory.
  • The church address and phone number.
  • The names of the online directory administrators.

If you want to take a closer look at the map, click on it to go into fullscreen mode. In fullscreen mode, you will be able to drag the map around, and click on the markers to see people’s names and addresses. When you are done, click the Close button in the top right-hand corner to exit fullscreen mode.

How do I browse the directory?

The main directory listings can be found under the Directory tab. Families will be listed alphabetically with their pictures on the right-hand side. On the left-hand side you will see the list of pages in the directory. If your directory is small, there may only be one or two pages, but large directories may have fifteen or twenty. The pages may be grouped into several sections, depending on how your administrator has organized the directory.

You can click on any family to see more details. When you are on the family detail screen, you will see the family picture, their address & phone number, and a map. Below this, you will see details about each family member under each of their names. On the right-hand side you will see a links for driving directions, and vCard export.

You can click on both the family picture and the map, to zoom in.

Can I update my information in the member directory?

Every member of the church directory has the ability to update their own information. To do this, log in to your directory, and find the page for your family. You should see a link called Edit Family on the left side of the page. This will take you to your family edit page. As a shortcut, you can click on your name in the top right corner (next to Preferences & Log Out) at any time, to go to your family edit page.

From the family edit page, you should be able to change any of your family’s information. To upload a photo, click the Browse (Choose File for Apple users) button underneath the picture, and select your new photo. The photo will not show up until you click the Save button, when you are done making your changes.

You can add family members by clicking the blue Add Spouse & Add Child buttons. You can remove them by clicking the gray ‘X’ buttons. When you are done, click the Save button to save your changes. You will be taken back to your regular family page, where you should see your updated information.

You can also email update requests to [email protected] or contact the church office.
