Committee Module Home Page

MiBaseNZ’s Committee module has been created to help libraries manage their volunteer work in a fast and efficient way.

There are two parts to this module.

  1. The yellow sections, which are free for everyone, include a page where toy libraries can add all their legal information and a page to list all committee members and their details including who has keys or bank access.
  2. The orange sections are the paid premium module and these include a page to add timesheets for your committee members and a page to add any events and meetings, including the minutes, that is held by the library.

If your library has purchased the premium module, the Home page will display these activities however if no premium module has been purchased the Home page will have no need to display anything.

If you are interested in the Committee premium module, feel free to contact us or read more on the Premium Module Page.

To start using the Committee module, go to Setup -> CommitteeSetup - Committee

 

Free Module Home Page

This home page will be blank, except for the module information in the blue box.

Committee home page

Premium Module Home Page

This Home page will feature the current month’s activities and the Meetings and Events calendar for the current month and the two next months.
At the beginning of each month, the month heading will update and the information recorded here will be removed ready for the new month’s recorded information. This information, although removed from the Home page, will still be listed on their relevant pages.

If you have added any events or meetings you will see different colours for each different type. Clicking the date will display the event or meeting’s information.

It is also possible to click the information to expand and see the complete event’s details with also a link to any documents attached.

The five buttons will appear on each of the pages so the admin will not need to visit the home page to access them.

Committee page

MiBaseNZ’s Committee page is where you can see the list of all your current Committee members as well as add any new members. You can view the member’s detail page, edit any of their information or resign them when they are no longer on the Committee.

When viewing the committee member’s detail page, be aware the first part of the page is part of the free module, the second part is the paid premium module which, if your library decides to have this, will show the list of timesheets entered. This is further explained below.

To start adding your committee members, go to Setup -> Committee -> Committee

 

Adding a Committee member

Click Add New.

Fill in the boxes. The only fields that are compulsory are the first and last name however it would be best if you could fill in as much as possible.
The bonus extras to this page are the four fields outlined below. Now you can keep on top of what Committee member has a key to the library, access to the bank accounts and to MiBaseNZ, and whether they are a library member.

The Thumbnail field also outlined is where you can add an image or photo of the Committee member which can be seen on their details page.
Before you do this, you will need to first upload their photo in the Upload Files page under Setup under the heading Running your Toy Library.
Follow this link to learn how to upload files to MiBaseNZ.

If you have already uploaded photos of your Committee for the Our Team or News page on the Public Website, then you will not need to do it again. Just copy ‘image name.jpg’ as outlined below and paste it into the Thumbnail field (see above).

If you have not uploaded photos already, when you do, the last two boxes ‘Access to file’ and ‘Category’ must have the selection as shown below. When the photo has been uploaded, then copy ‘image name.jpg’ as outlined below and paste it into the Thumbnail field (see above).

Once you have added all that you can click Save.

A Success box will appear. Click OK and it will take you back to the Committee member list page where the member will be listed.
