Article - InstaPage 5.0 Feature Spotlight: Board Only Features
InstaPage HOA Websites include many easy to use features designed specifically for community associations. One of the most valuable but less obvious components in the Site Administrator Control Panel is the Board Only module designed to partition off portions of the website for use and access of only those registered users designated as Board Members.
WHAT FEATURES ARE INCLUDED AND RESTRICTED TO ONLY BOARD MEMBERS?
Several functions support the Board Only designation:
- Board Only News: The Site Administrator may designate any news article as "Board Only", meaning only a registered user designated as a Board Member in the system will have access to the news article(s) on the Board Only page.
- Board Only Library Document Folders: A Site Administrator for an InstaPage HOA Website can designate any series of library folders or sub-folders, or documents, as Board Only. This will cause them to appear only on the Board Only page restricting access to those registered users designated as Board Members.
- Board Only E-Mail List: The Board Only page contains an easy to use tool to permit Board Members to email each other or blast the full Board e-mail list.
- Board Only Links: The Site Administrator can install a series of links to outside sites or files hosted elsewhere visible only on the Board Only page.
HOW IS SOMEONE DESIGNATED AS A BOARD MEMBER?
At the bottom of User Profiles under USERS in the Site Administrator Control Panel is a checkbox to designate that user as a Board Member. The Site Administrator must check that box and save the user profile to designate the user as a Board Member within the system.
HOW DO BOARD MEMBERS ACCESS THESE FEATURES?
Once a profile has been set as a Board Member, a link stating BOARD ONLY will be visible to that user in the website's lower menu bar.
We encourage all clients to utilize these valuable features! Should you have questions please either e-mail our support department (if a current client) at firstname.lastname@example.org, or our sales department (if you are considering InstaPage) at email@example.com.
