Home page blocks

From Community Weaver 3 Help

The home page blocks contain up-to-date content about your TimeBank and provide a way to quickly communicate to members about the current status of your TimeBank. Coordinators can control the visibility of blocks to expose information when the TimeBank hits certain milestones.

For example, you may not wish to advertise that your TimeBank only has 7 members right when you start. But after you've recruited more than, say 30 or more people to the TimeBank, it will be of interest to members to see this number grow as more people join. See home page block visibility.

Block content

Each block has a title, a visibility setting which is one of:

  • Coordinators
  • Members
  • Everyone

and content within each block.

If you are unable to see the visibility menu as a coordinator, check the Toggle Edit Mode checkbox in the gear menu.

Block: Events
