Community Maintenance - Constits bar

Use the Constits bar to:

  • List all constituencies that the community member is associated with. This includes Synergetic constituencies. System constituencies are generally prefixed with @. For example, the Staff constituency code is @STF.
  • Add a community member to a user-defined constituency. For example, the school council. User-defined groups do not have a prefix. See Adding a community member to a user-defined constituency in the Synergetic Community manual.
  • Modify and delete community members from user-defined constituencies.

Constituency membership is listed by:

  • code
  • description
  • date joined
  • campus
  • the date range of the association.
