Create Your CommunityStew Stewdio

As the creator of your Stewdio you are given the rights of an Administrator. This means you have the authority to:

  • Change content in the entire site both Public and Private Areas.

  • Add and delete members.

  • Approve or reject Membership Applications.

  • Change User Information for all members including those without email.  When you add an email address for a member who didn't have one(giving them access to the private area) you need to approve them again.

  • Post documents to the "Shared" areas.

  • Add, delete and edit events in the Calendars.

  • Edit postings in the Discussion Area.

  • Set up email distribution lists for all to use.  Be sure the names are recognizable (Officers, Admins, etc.)

You may grant or transfer administrator authority to others in your group so they can share or take over  these responsibilities.  Make sure you give them good instructions on what is happening in your Stewdio BEFORE you let them loose.  They too will have the POWER.

As a member of a Stewdio you have many privileges. Your email address is used for identification for admittance to the Private Area of the Stewdio. In the Stewdio you can:

  • Edit your own user information so it is always up-to-date.

  • Post messages in your Discussion Areas for discussions about various topics of interest to your group.

  • Send documents to your administrator for posting in the Shared Document area of your Stewdio.

  • Use the Address Book to send group emails to many different members of your group at once including preset Distribution Lists to specific portions of your group.

  • Change your password at any time.

  • View your groupís Calendar for events of interest.

When you enter information into the Generator's forms you will have an opportunity to look over your input, change it, and then when you're happy with it you scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the "Next" , "Continue" or  "Submit" button.  Don't worry too much about what you do because you can always come back later and easily change whatever you like by using the "Update Stewdio Content" feature.  The only thing you can't change is the name of your group (because it becomes the URL of your Stewdio and everyone uses it to find you), so make sure it's right in the beginning.

  • Think about creating your Stewdio.

Gather the information you want to make available to the public and your members.  Don't worry about missing something.  You can change any of this information whenever you like by simply going to the Update Stewdio page.

  • You will be asked to provide the following information for your Public area:

Group Name   Required
Group Slogan   Optional
Announcements   Optional

Picture Caption   Optional
General Information   Optional
Custom Fields Optional
 

You can choose to have a Public Calendar (to post public events and meetings), Bulletin Board (for ongoing discussions) and Document Sharing (for large documents such as Member Agreements - docs are locked and changeable only by an administrator).

  • You will be asked to provide the following information for your Private area:

Group Slogan   Optional
Announcements   Optional
Picture   Optional
Picture Caption   Optional
General Information   Optional

You can choose to have a Private Calendar (to post private events and meetings), Bulletin Board (for ongoing discussions) and Document Sharing (for large documents or collaborations - the docs can be set to allow changes or not).

  • For your Private area you may set up an address book and customize your email distribution lists.

To do this you can either manually enter each member's name and information or you can upload your member information database to us and it will be entered automatically.  You will then customize your mailing lists by choosing which of your members you would like in each list..
