Become

When you Become another member you are acting as that other member. You are essentially logged in as that member until you return to your own account.


Who can use the "Become" feature?

If you are a Member Coordinator or an Admin Coordinator, you can click the Become button for any member's account to log in as that member. When a coordinator becomes a member, all actions (e.g. post an ad or record an exchange) are recorded as done by that member.

If you are a Manager of an Organization, you can click the Become button only for the organization that they are allowed to manage in order to log in as that member. When a manager becomes a member, all actions (e.g. post an ad or record an exchange) are recorded as done by that member.

If you are the Guardian Angel of another member, you can manage that members account. You can click on the Become button for their account to log in as that member. When a Guardian Angel becomes a member, all actions (e.g. post an ad or record an exchange) are recorded as done by that member.


If you have become another member:

  • That member's name will appear in the Menu Bar
  • In the Status Bar, the row below the Menu Bar, a message will say Acting as <name of member>.


To return to your own timebank account:

  • Immediately to the right of this message a link will say Return to <name of member> (the name of coordinator, manager or Guardian Angel using the become feature).
  • When you are finished acting as the member, the click this link to return to your own account.


NOTE: If you become a member, you need to return to your previous account before trying to become another member. (CW does not remember more than one level of 'becoming' another member.)
