The document area of the member portal is a file manager that is available to house club-related documents. This area provides a centralized, easy-to-access area that help clubs and groups store and organize documents like by-laws, minutes, club flyers, member applications and forms and other club information that is helpful for club members to be able to access. With Portalbuzz, you can upload important documents and compile them into different sub-folders.
Note: Only administrators and Document Administrators can upload documents, but all members have access to this area to be able to download files.

This article will discuss features of the document area.

After logging in, access the document area by clicking the Documents icon on the left navigation menu. This brings you to the document page.
A couple things to keep in mind:

  • Who can view documents? Any club member

  • Who can download documents? Any club member

  • Who can upload documents? Site Administrator or Document Administrator. (If you need to be able to upload items to the document area of the Member Portal, you will need to have your role set by the Site Administrator.)
