Setting Directory Field Permissions

The Field Permissions menu allows you to set which fields can be searched in your directory, and to control whether users can toggle the visibility of a given piece of information. You can set independent options for both your internal Member Portal directory and your public-facing directory.

Field Permissions

In this tab, you can choose which contact information and address will be displayed, which fields must be shown in a directory listing, and which ones the users can choose to show or hide.

Allow contact information to be shown in the directory – when this is toggled on it displays the members contact information, including name, address, phone and email address.  You can further disable fields using the Setting Field Display Permissions options explained below.

Which address will appear in the member directory – by default the business information will appear in the member directory however you can display the residential information instead if preferred.  Note that only one or the other can be displayed.
