Profile Privacy Options

Posted By Patricia Herrmann, Thursday, May 23, 2013
Community members who have a public profile visible to all site visitors may choose from three field visibility options. For each field where visibility may be specified, a user with a profile may now choose to hide the field entirely, show it only to other users or show it to everyone.

While editing your profile bio, select from the following list of field visibility options:

Public (Visible to Everyone)
Members Only (Visible Only to Members)
Private (Not Visible in Profile)

All About Groups

Posted By Patricia Herrmann, Monday, December 17, 2012

NACDD's new site includes Online Groups. These groups are for those who have a similar interest in something. You can get to know one another, contribute to a conversation, share your thoughts, learn from others, and feel free to stay awhile. There are members-only groups, public groups, and private working groups.


To see/enter a group you are a member of, select "Groups" on the right-hand side under MY PROFILE to view groups you belong to. 


Select "Groups" on the right-hand side under MY PROFILE. Click "join a group" at the top.  Select the group name and select Join Group at the top. Restricted groups will give a note that they require invitation to join.


Tools that are available within a group depend on the rights assigned by NACDD and/or group administrators. Different groups have different options. Below are the standard tools.
