Whether you're new to the Console or just want a refresher, here's your guide to how to use it.

Members

From the Members page you can invite new Members and manage your existing Members. You'll see a list of your current Members with your newest Members at the top.

By clicking on a Member you'll be taken to the page where you can see more info on that Member's engagement with your community. You'll also see the Groups that Member is part of – you can add them to or remove them from Groups and give them admin permissions for specific Groups if you need to. And you can send a direct message to the Member from this page.

This is also where you can moderate your Members. You can disable or delete their account, and you can 'shadowban' them. You can also send them password reset email. 

Find out more about moderating your Members.

Folders

Your content lives in Folders. Think of it as your content library. Here you can store your images, videos, audio files, PDFs and links out to external content. There's no limit to the number of Folders you can create. 

There are also different layouts you can use to present your content. 

Check out our guide to learn about Folders.

Events

The Events section is where your Members will find details on all of your upcoming and past events. When you click on an event from the Console you can edit the Event's information and add things like a button and an attendee list. From here you can also see which of your members have said they'll be attending and which haven't.
