Adding Members to your Community

All Lotsa Helping Hands communities are private and only community coordinators can add members to a community.

As a coordinator, there are two ways to add members to your community:

  1. Add one or more members by clicking on the "Add a new member" button on the People tab. After adding members, click on the "Notify members" link from your Administration tab to tell new members about your community.
  2. The best way to get a large group into the community without having to add each person individually is to create a bulk email message from your own system and address it to all those that you want to invite. In that email, explain what the community is all about and direct them to go to your community address:

    Instruct the people you've invited to fill out the right-hand side of the form which is a Request to Join the Community. Once they've done this, you will begin to receive emails back stating that there are "pending members". Coordinators can "approve" the pending members from the pending members page on their Administration tab. Once you have approved them, members will be automatically added to the community and sent instructions for setting a password and signing-in.
