Video: New Member Orientation for WordPress for Toastmasters

This latest tutorial experience covers the basic member experience on WordPress for Toastmasters, including basic tasks like changing a password, correcting contact information on the member profile, and signing up to speak or fill another meeting role.

The second part of the video shows how members can track their own progress through the program on the new My Progress screen and (if allowed) correct and update those records.

Administrators should be aware of the option to allow members to edit their own records. For example, if a speech was recorded as a Competent Communication speech when really it was out of one of the advanced manuals, you can allow members to put in the correct information. This also gives members a way of recording a speech they gave at another club.

If you are not comfortable with that option, you can have members report any corrections to the VP of Education or other club leader, who can make the change.

If you choose to turn this feature on, you would do so on the Security tab of the Toastmasters settings screen. The “edit_member_stats” security privledge would allow editing of any member’s performance statistics, but you probably¬†want to reserve that superpower for officers and senior members. You can turn on “edit_own_stats” to allow them to correct/update their own records only.
