MIMA LAUNCHES NEW AND IMPROVED WEBSITE
We are excited to announce that we have enhanced the design, navigation and usability of the MIMA website. In addition, our new website/database/community platform will provide new features for our members.
HOW DO YOU LOGIN AND CONTROL YOUR PROFILE?
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 MIMA. We set a default, so log into your profile and select what is private, members only or public. 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.
Each MIMA member has an individual login. Group member admins have another login to manage their group membership.
MIMA MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORY
We know that the MIMA 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, Members Only or Public. 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 Public on an item, you will not return on that FAR search for any public visitors. If you make your city/state members only or private and a public visitor 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.
WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?
The new website offers more social networking features to foster collaboration within our community. Key features include a new more customizable member profile, ability to set up your own personal blog, online chat/instant messaging, favorites, connections, wiki-enabled pages, group pages, file libraries and more.
