Organization as a Type of Member

Unpublished

(This has recently been released as a new feature for TBNYC and would have been brought over to CW.)

An Organization should be able to create an account in a Timebank. The profile for an Organization has some new fields (Mission, Contact Person, Contact Person details, etc) and does not use most of the Attributes for Individual members.

Organization Members

This is so important moving forward! There are so many timeBanks that have organizations as members, and a growing movement to use TimeBanking specifically to encourage exchanges between organizations. I can't say how many times people ask about adding organizations to their membership, and the work-around for CW.  I haven't seen how this works for TBNYC, but one thing that would be good organizations could automatically be added to the affiliations list when they join. That way, their staff/clients/volunteers who participate in the TimeBank as individuals can also affiliate themselves with the organization right away.
