Linda : Answers to your questions here
At this point in time, levels of membership:
- Visitor (any site visitor)
- Member (general parent or scout access)
- Troop Admin (ASM and Comm Members)
My thoughts – in general
MEMBER ACCESS REQUIRED
- Scout lastnames
- Outings sign up page
- Scout and member contact info
- more ??
There may be cases where we want both, but usually the MEMBERS ONLY restriction should suffice. Password protection is used to ALLOW access to specific pages if they have the password. The registration page is an example of this. We need to allow public access to the registration page, but not allow visitor to sign up unless they have been given the password.
SAFEST WAY is to limit access completely by ONLY allowing web admin to register new members.
I will research if it is feasible to send invitations directly from Eventbrite or if we can use GoogleGroups as a viable one-to-many email sending solution.
