If an association has groups or committees that other members would benefit from being able to search in the member directory, create a directory with desired groups/committees as a filter in the directory with the option to limit who can see the filter.

Create Filter for Directory

1. Create a group or select an existing group to edit, or create a committee or select an existing committee.

2. In the group or committee's Details tab, scroll down to the Member Directory Filter section.

3. Check the box next to Show as filter on Member Directory, to add as a filter selection.

4. To lock down who is able to see this filter, select a group or committee in the Filter Visible To field OR leave it blank to show the filter to the public.

  • As an example, in the screenshot above the filter will only show in the directory to members of the Special Interest Groups (SIGs) group.

5. Click the Save button. The filter is now ready to be added to specific directories as needed.

Add Filter to Directory

1. To add the filter to a directory, navigate to Members > Directories on the backend and open the directory (or create a new one).

2. In the directory's settings, scroll down to the Filters section.

3. Locate the group or committee in the drop-down and click on it, then click the Add button on the right to add that group as a filter in the directory.

4. Click the Save & Close button to update the directory.
