This can be very handy when you need to rearrange, format, or combine information for a special purpose such as a mailing list or data analysis or if you want to make filters and searches that are not built into Community Weaver.


How Do I...?

Select Multiple Members, Exchanges, or Ads

  • You probably want to select a number of members, ads or exchanges in order to do a further actions with the list that is selected. There are two ways to select multiple members, service ads or exchanges in a list.


View Applying Members

The default list of members shows all enabled accounts that are members (approved). It does not show non-members (not approved) and does not show disabled accounts.

There are two ways to view a list of applying members.

A) Use the pre-configured filter that creates a report.

  1. Go to the GEAR icon
  2. Click on Dashboard
  3. Click on the the report
  4. Under the section "Member Reports"
  5. Click on "applying members all"

B) Create the filter yourself.

  1. Go to the list of Members
  2. Open the filter for "Roles" and choose "Applying members"instead of Members."

Note: It may be confusing that the list of members does not show you the date that the member joined Community Weaver. If you change the ascending/descending date order you can use the "Last seen" information to help you guess which order of date joined you are looking at.


Configure Member Privacy


Send a Broadcast Email

  1. Select the addressees from the Members list.
  2. Click Member Actions then Compose broadcast email.


Review Broadcast Emails


Make Sections of the Home Page Visible


Export Data to a Spreadsheet


Remove Misspelled Cities

  • On the Members list, the 'Cities' filter lists the cities of all members. Any misspelled city in the list is caused by a misspelled city in the profile of either an enabled member or a disabled member. To correct the misspelled city:
  1. Clear all filter settings in the Members list.
  2. Change the Enabled/Disabled filter to 'All'.
  3. Select the misspelled city and click the magnifying glass to search for the member whose profile has the misspelled city.
  4. Correct the city's spelling in the member's profile.


Delete Members

We recommend that you do not delete members but just disable the member's account. Why? If you delete the account of a member that has participated in one or more recorded exchanges, then

  • you will loose statistical data of your timebank,
  • those exchange records will loose a partner
  • the exchange certificate will not show that person.

Therefore Community Weaver prevents deleting members if they have a recorded exchange.

Click on: Timebank Name Change

  • If you want to assign a new person to be your TimeBanks' Community Weaver Licensee aka Representative to TBUSA), please use the online form at: change your TimeBank's licensee.
