The Member Compass is one of the first views in members' experiences with your website. Customize the Member compass to highlight provided membership benefits that are just a click away for your members!

Link Directly to the Member Compass Sections

Direct links to Member Compass tabs allows for a seamless experience for member account management.

For example, add direct links as a call to action or email campaign reminding members to update their Profile and, if they have management access, their People or even link directly to a specific field in the user's Profile!

Use a direct link to the Pay Balance section to make it a one-click navigation to collect outstanding dues and non-dues revenue!


Add /member-compass to the end of your Novi website domain as the direct link to bring members to the Dashboard page of the Member Compass.

  • Novi Tip: Consider linking to the Member Compass dashboard in your email campaigns, instead of the /login page so members who are already logged in don't have to enter their Username and Password again.

Sections (or Tabs)

  • Share a direct link to each of the Member Compass tabs by adding to your domain /member-compass#NAME-OF-TAB

  • Or Right-click on the tab in the Member Compass and click Copy Link Address to share.

If trying to link users to the Profile tab of the Member Compass, for example, add /member-compass#Profile to the domain to create a direct link to the tab.

Specific Field

To link to a specific field within the Profile tab, add the section name to your domain. Like this: /member-compass#profile-DISPLAY-NAME-OF-FIELD.

If linking directly from the Member Compass itself, utilize only the tab and Display Name for the field in the link like this: #profile-DISPLAY-NAME-OF-FIELD.

Customize the Member Compass Dashboard

To get started, make sure you are logged in with your admin account. From the frontend website, click your name in the top right-hand corner of the site to be taken to the Member Compass.


Use the space on the main dashboard page to share news and resources. Both members and non-members with User Accounts will see this information. This may be your opportunity to encourage non-members to sign-up for access to those resources!

The content region is editable allowing you to add images, calls to action and formatted text.

Member Compass Alert

Since the Member Compass is the first page users see after logging in to your website, this is a great place to add an alert!

  • Click in the text area next to the alert icon and enter your alert.

  • Once you save, this will appear on everyone's Member Compass.

When not using the alert, leave the text area blank and it won't show for members. Note: As an admin you will always see the alert bar on your Member Compass even when left blank. This is so you can add and remove a message as needed.

Blog Categories

Display specific blog categories on the Member Compass Dashboard.

Share industry and member-only news, or consider rotating in categories to highlight new ones each month and grow engagement.
