HR help files to manage your site access

Tendencihr_1 Things are going along just fine and then – BAM – your site admin up and quits. You take over the job and the first order of business is to remove the old admin from the site and add yourself. But where does the admin’s email address show up? The Tendenci HR help files will walk you through adding and removing administrators from your site, as well as show you how to run a periodic listing of all of your site admins. Security is muy importante! Stay on top of it!

Tendenci Memberships

Memberships are cool! Have you seen what Tendenci can do to manage Membership status?

You can upload your members from a third party (national) database, then let new members join and pay online. Members receive automatic email notification when their membership nears its expiration Membershipadd_2 date with a click to renew their status, update their record and pay online — or print the renewal application to submit with a check or cash.

You can set a grace period during which members retain site access after expiration and run a script that removes all expired memberships from the system. You can also set up multiple membership types at different rates and with different pricing for events and restrict site access, including member lists, to members only.

What an awesome feature!!
