An Easier Way to Handle Member Access to Your Site

Authorization Programs and Roles make it easier for you AND your member. You have only one login to set up and administer in Membee. The member has only one login to remember. Along with the ability for you to provide your members with a single access login for multiple applications on your site, another advantage of Membee’s Member Single Sign On (MSSO) is the addition of “Authorization Programs and Roles”. Programs and Roles extends the function of the Member Single Sign On Login to provide secured access to portions of your site based on a role you assign to the person as a member of a Group or Committee in Membee.
By assigning roles to a Group or Committee you can globally administer access for different sub-sets of your membership. If you drop the member, you only have to drop them in Membee and their access to all other programs and roles is also deactivated.
Using Authorization Roles
You might want to grant different kinds of member access to different pages on your website. Using the Programs and Roles in Membee you can assign this access and your members only need to remember one password.
The Board Member Page Example:
Perhaps you want to post information that only the Board of Directors can access. Use MSSO to create a secure content Board of Directors page or section on your site and associate a “Board Member” role with the Board of Directors Committee in Membee. Add your Board Members to the Committee.
Add a person to the Board of Directors Committee and they automatically get the “Board Member” role. Because that role is associated with their login, they can gain access to the secured page. Just by adding the person to the committee, you have given them access to the Board Member page. You don’t have to remember to issue access in another way since it happens as soon as they are member of the committee. If you remove them from the Board Committee, they are automatically removed from the group that has access to the Board Member page on your site. No extra steps are required, nothing gets forgotten and people who should no longer have access don’t.
The Chapter Example:
Perhaps your association has chapters in both Boston and Los Angeles. You could create a secure content area for a particular chapter, say “Boston Chapter”, on your website. By adding the Boston Chapter members to a group and associating a “Boston Chapter” role with that group, you are giving them access to the Boston Chapter page. If someone were a member of the Los Angeles Chapter group, they wouldn’t gain access to the Boston Chapter pages.
The Member vs. Supplier Example:
Perhaps your data includes both Members and Associated Members like Vendor/Suppliers. You could secure different levels of access for these two types of members. For example, if you have a Resources page that you want your Supplier/Vendors to access while not making that page public or providing access to all Members. Add people to the Vendor/Suppliers Group. In your site, allow that group to access the Resources page, which means that it is not publicly accessible but the Vendor/Suppliers can see it. On the other hand, you have a Member’s only page that you don’t want Suppliers to see. Simply set the Member’s Only page so that only people with the Member’s Group role have access. On that page, neither the public nor the Supplier will have access but your Members will see the page.
How To Set It Up:
There a just a few simple steps to set up the programs and roles:
- Implement Social Login
- Have your web developer implement MSSO on your website (This is what we call a “Program”)
- Create a role or roles in Authorization Programs and Rolesin Membee
- The web developer associates the secured pages with those roles
- Create a group or committeein Membee
- Associate the role with your committee or group
- Add the appropriate people to the committee or group
Your content is secured, the people you add to groups or committees have access letting you easily manage website permissions.
