If your association has groups that other members would benefit from being able to search for in the member directory, such as Special Interest Groups (SIGs) or committees, you can not only create a directory of these records, but also use it as a filter in larger directories using groups.
Create a group in the admin section of Novi (Members > Groups) or select an existing group to edit.
In the group creation modal, scroll down to the Member Directory Filter section.
Check the box next to "Show as filter on Member Directory," to add that group as a filter selection. Your filter is now active and ready to be used.
If you'd like to lock down who is able to see this filter, simply select a group in the "Filter Visible To" section OR leave it blank to leave the filter available to the public.
As an example, in the screenshot above the filter will only show in the directory to members of the "All Suppliers" group.
