Website FAQs and Tips
HOW DO YOU LOGIN AND CONTROL YOUR PROFILE?
Your user name is most likely your email address, and your password is PROFESSIONALS. This password is case sensitive. With this launch, we needed to reset all the passwords, so even if you’ve logged in before using a password of your choosing, you will need to use the password PROFESSIONALS. If you have forgotten your password, please click on the "Forgot the Password" link on the login page. Once you log in, please change your password to something you will remember and be sure to review and update your unique profile. To make this change, go to the Members Only area of the website, then "Update Your Member Profile." Under Information and Settings, select the "Edit Bio" option. You may update anything within your user profile here, including your username and password.
As a great new member benefit, you can now control the privacy for ALL of your data with MnAEYC-MnSACA We set a default, so log into your profile and select what is private or members only. Simply click on the icon to the left of the data field and select the proper level. You can list your city/state/zip to the public, and hide your address, for example.
ACCESSING YOUR TRAINING RECORD

MnAEYC-MnSACA MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORY
We know that the MnAEYC-MnSACA Membership Directory feature is one of the great benefits to our members. In the new system, there are some great new options for you. Each member can determine where their information shows up. You can select Private or Members Only. So, if you want your city and location to show up, but not your address line, you can now make that selection. Please note that if you do not select Members Only on an item, you will not return on that FAR search for any member search. If you make your city/state private and a member puts your city/state into the FAR, you will not show up. The search for name and organization are currently a full word search only – you must put in Evaluation not Eval or Christine, not Chris.
MANAGING YOUR ORGANIZATION PROFILE
The organization’s primary contact has the ability to manage the organization’s profile. These tasks include renewing the membership, making update to the organization’s information, selecting the privacy level of the information and managing the employees.
To access these tasks the primary contact must sign in using the organization’s username and password. As the primary contact you will have been provided with both a personal username and password for access to your profile plus an additional username and password for your organization. To renew your membership sign into the website on the right side of the screen click on Manage Profile, then the Membership Icon.
To manage your organization’s information, click on the link "manage profile” and then "edit bio”. Here you will be able to make changes to the organization’s information and set the level of privacy. For example, you only want to have the city and state displayed in the members search. You would go to the address field and click on the icon next to the field and select members only from the drop down menu.
To manage your organization’s employee list you will need go to the manage profile page and then click on sub-accounts. Towards the bottom of the page you will find a list of those individuals associated with your company. There are several things that can be done here; if you click on the person’s name you will be able to view that profile. There are 3 icons located next to the person’s name these allow you to update that person’s profile, suspend the person from your organization and detach the person from your organization. Removing a person from your list is a two-step process, first click on the icon to suspended the person and then click on the icon to detach the person from your organization. To add a person to your list you can either click on the link "create a sub-account” or click on send and invite. If you create the sub-account you will need to have all of the person’s information to complete the person’s profile. By using the "send invite” option you will be sending an email to that person with a link for them to create the profile.
