The Member Groups module is accessed by opening the Groups folder in the “Module Explorer” and selecting the Member Groups module. A Member Group is any group of members for which you may want to print a roster or produce object output such as labels, nametags, word-processing merge files, and so forth. For more information see “About the Groups modules.”

Member Groups “List View”

A scrollable table of all Member Groups. The Member Groups “List View” has one default column: “Name,” which is the name of the group. Read more about navigating within this table in “Working within a module.”

Member Group “Detail View”

A Member Group “Detail View” is displayed below the Member Group “List View” and organized into two tabbed pages: “Basic Info” page and “Roster” page.

Group menu

The Group menu is discussed in “Working within a module” and includes the menu items listed below.

“New Row”

Choosing “New Row” creates a new blank Member Group record.

“Delete Row”

Choosing “Delete Row” deletes the currently selected or “highlighted” Member Group record. Choose this item if you want to delete an existing record, and/or if you inadvertently chose the “New Row” item and unintentionally created a new blank record. (Note: A deleted Member Group cannot be “undeleted.” Therefore, be certain that you want to delete it before doing so.)

“Procedures”

Choosing this menu item displays a selection dialog box from which you can choose any procedures that are implemented as “installed options.” To learn how to quickly add or remove members from a group using procedures available in the Members module see “Add Member(s) to a Member Group” and “Delete Member(s) from a Member Group.”

Output menu

Choosing this menu item provides access to different Member Group related reports. There are two output categories to choose from: “Member Group Listing” and “Other.”

“Add/Remove”

Choosing the “Add/Remove” menu item displays the multiple-selection dialog box for adding Members to and/or removing Members from the Member Group.
