What is a Community Timebank?

A Community Timebank is a "sub-timebank" or "branch" within a Community Weaver timebank site. A Community Weaver will have to create the Community Timebank before it can be used by the timebank's members.


If a Community Timebank exists, any timebank member can choose:

  • to associate their own account with one or more Community Timebanks.
  • to associate any of their own offers or requests with one or more Community Timebanks.

A member does not have to be associated with a Community Timebank.


If a member or of a member's offers/requests are associated with a Community Timebank, then the filters can be used to find:

  • all members associated with the Community Timebank
  • find all offers/requests that are associated with a Community Timebank.

A service ad does not have to be associated with a Community Timebank.


Community Timebanks for Members

Members can associate themselves (their timebank account) with a Community Timebank in their profile.

  1. Go to your profile
  2. Click on "Edit connections"
  3. Click on the tab "Communities"
  4. To associate your account, choose one or more of the Community Timebanks in the list. (If no Community Timebanks are listed, your coordinator has not yet set up this feature.)
  5. Click on "Save changes"


NOTE: Associating yourself with a Community Timebank does not change your accounts visibility to other members. All timebank members can see all other timebank members even if they are associated with different Community Timebanks.


Community Timebanks for Service Ads

Members can associate their offers/requests with a Community Timebank. When posting or editing a service ad:

  1. Go to the section "Link to Community Timebank ..."
  2. To associate your service ad, choose one or more of the Community Timebanks in the list. (If no Community Timebanks are listed, your coordinator has not yet set up this feature.)


NOTE: Associating a service ad with a Community Timebank does not change its visibility. All timebank members can see all offers and requests associated with any Community Timebank. All timebank members can choose to associate any of their offers/requests with any Community Timebank.


Filtering members or service ads associated with for Community Timebanks

  • In the list of members, you can use the filter "Community Timebank" to show a list of members associated with a Community Timebank.
  • In the list of offers/requests, you can use the filter "Community Timebank" to show a list of offers/requests that are associated with a Community Timebank.


NOTE: Since any member can associate their own service ads with any Community Timebank, when you filter for ads associated with any one Community Timebank, you could possibly see offers or requests that were posted by timebank members who are not associated with that Community Timebank.


Coordinator Options

  • If no Community Timebanks are visible to members, the coordinator has not yet created one.
  • Coordinators can create a Community Timebank by configuring the list at Gear Icon/Configure/Lists/Community Timebanks. As soon as a new Community Timebank is created, it will be visible to all members.
  • Coordinators can remove a Community Timebank by configuring the list at Gear Icon/Configure/Lists/Community Timebanks.
