Need some more help? Follow this written documentation to manually create a new user and add them as a member to your League's group.
*We offer each League one (1) bulk member upload.
If you have a lot of members to add to the system at once, you can provide MyLO Support with a spreadsheet with member data. The member data includes first and last names, email address, and phone number (optional). The member data sheet template is available for you to use as a guide to build your list. The MyLO Team can perform this member upload once your site is set to public view.
Please contact MyLO Support at mylo [at] lwvc.org if you have any questions about creating your spreadsheet, as it must follow specific parameters.
The unique elements about each member are the username and email address. If your member data sheet includes existing members, their email address must match the address already attached to their existing user account in order to make an update to the existing members.
When members are added in bulk, mylo [at] lwvc.org (by request), the MyLO Team can send a welcome email to each member with a new or updated account. This will tell them how to login and reset their password.
Next Steps for Webmaster
Once the members have all been added successfully, you can opt for the MyLO Team to send a welcome email to each member with a new or updated account. This will tell them how to login and reset their password.
If you are sending the welcome email out to each new member, be sure to include:
Members can create their own accounts on MyLO by clicking on the 'Register' link at the top right in the login bar.
When they create their account, they are creating a general MyLO account, not yet tied to any specific League in MyLO. You can then add them to your League as a member using the first set of instructions above.
You can also add your League to the list of MyLO Leagues on the registration form: https://my.lwv.org/user (you must be logged out to see the League list). By creating a user account, a visitor requests to become an online member in your League; you (or one of your other webmasters) must then access Manage Members to approve that member to grant them access to your League's private content.
Add your League to the List on the Registration Page
To add your League to the user registration list, go to your League's homepage and click on New Draft or Edit Draft (if there is an existing draft already).
Scroll to the Advanced Settings section; click to expand this section to locate the Group register field. By default, this is set to Do not show on registration page. Change the setting to Show on registration page to display your League as an option on the registration form.
Remember: you will need to publish your changes in order for them to take effect. Before you save, set the Moderation State to 'Published' (by default, this is set to 'Draft').
How the user will create their own account
This will add your League to the list on the user registration page. You can find the user registration page when logged out by visiting https://my.lwv.org/user then clicking:
Once the new user has filled out the user registration page, the final question involves selecting a state or local League. By selecting a local or state League, the user will be registered as a "pending" member of the League and a notification will be sent to an administrator to confirm this user's membership status. Once this is confirmed, the user will have access to members only content for that League.
The Local League membership list looks like this:
