Online Communities

Communities allows interaction between members, guests, committees and branches. They can be open to the general public or private. Private communities can be restricted to such groups as committee members, leaders, students in a course, or members of a branch. The system is flexible so that any data that we keep in our database can be used to define distinct groups that may access a community. Here is a brief description of each area that every community contains:

News Items - maintained by the community administrator, News Items allows your group to post timely news and messages. A subscription function allows users to have messages emailed to them instantly, daily or weekly.

Forums - threaded discussions for users to connect and communicate with each other. Some examples of forums are?course discussions & questions, gear swaps, and trail recommendations. Users may subscribe to Forums as they do for News Items.

Document Archive - a place for users to share documents. This is a useful tool for committees to store meeting minutes and policies and for course administrators who want to share handouts, maps, and gear lists with their students.

For information about creating a community for your group, please send us an email.
