FreemasonsWeb Secretary Module

The FreemasonsWeb Secretary Module is designed for Lodge secretaries to enable them to:

Access to the Secretary Module is via the Tools->Secretary menu within the FreemasonsWeb CMS.

1. Documents

The secretary module is based on the following concepts & components:

Documents

Documents you create within the secretary module become textual PDF documents that can be printed. Typically these will be letters to your members, other Lodges or Provincial and Grand Lodge.

There are also "uploaded" documents, which can be any external document you wish to store within the Secretary Module.

Examples of uploaded documents are scanned in correspondence, or official documents from Grand Lodge.

Folders

Folders are the place where you store your documents. Folders are hierarchical in structure and are similar in nature to the folders on your computer's disk drives.

Templates

Templates are "pre-canned" content you define for use in your documents. These can be anything from a simple signature to a full letter.

The idea is that you can build up your documents using these templates to save you from re-typing the same thing every time.

Templates make use of tokens to dynamically change content when you use them in your documents.

Tokens

Tokens are replacable elements within your documents and templates, such as "secretary_name", "address" or "date". They are things that are likely to change over time, but rather than having to change all your templates every time they do, only the token value needs changing.

Tokens are always surrounded by curly brackets, with a dollar sign at the beginning to identify them as a token, e.g.: {$secretary_name}.

Whenever a token is found within a document, the token is either replaced by its default value (which you can define), or you are prompted for the value when creating your document.

Tokens can also be linked to a member data field, so for example a summons letter could begin, "Dear {$member_name},", and the member name token would be replaced with the name of each member the letter is sent to.

Member List Filters

Member List Filters are pre-defined queries that are used to define a list of members.

You can use these filters to specify which members you want documents generated for, or which members you want to send emails to.

Member Export Templates

Member Export Templates are member reports that can be exported as a PDF document.

Typical usages of Member Export Templates are:

You also have the option of providing a PDF template as a basis for your document (e.g. an official form from Grand Lodge, or a gift-aid slip), where the Member Export Template can be used to fill in the parts of the form.

Member Export Templates can be used in conjunction with Member List Filters to define what members you want to apply the export template to.

Bulk Emails

Bulk emails provide a way of sending emails to one or more of your Lodge or Website members.

In addition to the textual content of your email, you can also add file attachments, Member Export Templates and Documents which can be personalised for the members you are sending the email to.

The email text can also make use of tokens to personalise the email content for each member.

1.1. Documents List

Documents Tab

The Documents tab is where you create, upload and manage your documents.

There are three types of documents:

  1. Single: This is a standard document that can be sent to anyone you choose, and can be "published" to your website.

    A rich-text editor is provided to edit the content of your document with support for the standard PDF fonts, pre-defined templates, and named tokens whos values are substituted when the document is generated.

  2. Member: Similar to a standard document but contains personalised tokens that will be replaced for each member, such as their name, address etc. These type of documents can only be sent to Lodge Members and cannot be "published" to your website.

  3. Uploaded: These documents are external documents which are uploaded to your document folders.

All document types can be used as attachments in emails.

The following actions can be performed on documents:

Edit

Edit: Allows you to edit your document.
For uploaded documents, you can only edit the title and folder where the document is stored.

Delete

Delete: Permanently removes this document.

Note: This operation CANNOT be undone.

Publish

Publish: Makes this document available for downloading on your website. When a document is published, it will appear within Site Designer->Files, and will be available within the files dropdown when creating links within the Page Editor.

Print

Print: Allows you to download your document as a printable PDF file.

For documents of type "Member", the dropdown is used to select which members the document will be printed for:
member chooser
You can choose from

  • All Members;
  • a list of members based on a filter list query; or
  • a specific member.

A personalised copy of the document will be generated for each member, and collated in a single PDF file.

NOTE: Only documents of type "Single" and "Member" can be printed. You cannot print "Uploaded" documents (see below).

Backup

Download: For documents of type "Uploaded", you can download the file to print it using the program that created it (e.g. MS Word for Word documents, MS Excel for Excel documents etc)

If you have a large number of document folders, you can use the switch folder selector to only show documents underneath a particular folder:

Switch Folder

Use the Add Document button to create a "Single" or "Member" document.

Use the Upload section to upload an external document.

Use the folder dropdown to select which folder you want your new document to reside in.

1.2.1 Creating/Editing Single and Member Documents

Adding/editing a Single or Member document gives you the following page:

Edit Document Page

Folder Here you can change the folder your document resides in.
Document Type Choose between "Member" or "Single".
Title The title of your document. This will be used as part of the filename when printing, downloading or using as an attachment.

The text editor is a slightly cut-down version of the page editor used for your website pages.

Normal text editing is the same as with your website pages. Full help on the editor is available by clicking the help button on the editor:
Editor Help

Note that the editor itself is an HTML editor, but renders the HTML as PDF when printing. Due to the different way browsers present this HTML, there may be slight differences in word or paragraph alignment when printing.

To save your document click the Save button, or click Cancel to cancel your changes.

1.2.2 Inserting Template Content

To insert user-defined template content into your document, click the insert template button:

Insert Template

A pop-up dialog will appear, allowing you to select the template you wish to insert:

Insert Template

On selecting a template, a preview will be presented to you.

Click the Insert button to insert the content into your document.

If your template contains tokens, any token with a default value will be replaced.

If these tokens are linked to a member data field, the token will remain unchanged until you "print" the document.

You will be prompted for the value of any token that is not linked to a member data field, and doesn't have a default value.

1.2 Document Folders

The Document Folders sub-tab is where you manage the structure of your folders:

Folders are the place where you store your documents. Folders are hierarchical in structure and are similar in nature to the folders on your computer's disk drives.

Document Folders

The following actions can be performed on folders:

Add

Add: Adds a new folder at the same level as this one.

The text editor is a slightly cut-down version of the page editor used for your website pages.

Normal text editing is the same as with your website pages. Full help on the editor is available by clicking the help button on the editor:
Editor Help

To use tokens within your document, use the following convention:

{$token name}

If the token you define doesn't already exist, it will be automatically created on saving your template.

Once you have saved your template, it will then become available for use within your documents.

To save your template click the Save button, or click Cancel to cancel your changes.

1.4 Tokens

Tokens are replacable elements within your documents and templates, such as "secretary_name", "address" or "date". They are things that are likely to change over time, but rather than having to change all your templates every time they do, only the token value needs changing.

Whenever a token is found within a document, the token is either replaced by its default value (which you can define), or you are prompted for the value when creating your document.

Tokens can also be linked to a member data field, so for example a summons letter could begin, "Dear {$member_name},", and the member name token would be replaced with the name of each member the letter is sent to.

Tokens

The following actions can be performed on tokens:

Save

Save: Save changes to this token.

Delete

Clicking the Save button at the bottom of the page will save changes to all tokens on this page.

Tokens are automatically added for you when you define them within your templates, but you can add them manually for use in documents and emails using the add token button, specifying your token name:

Add Token

When editing or adding a token, the following fields should be provided:

Description This defaults to the title, but you can specify a more detailed description here if required.
Default Value

For tokens that are set to "** NOT A MEMBER FIELD**", the token is always replaced with this value. Not specifying a default value for tokens set to "** NOT A MEMBER FIELD **" will cause you to be prompted for the value when inserting your template into your documents.

For tokens that are linked to a Lodge Member Field, the default value is used when the corresponding field for that member is blank.

Lodge Member Field The token will be replaced by the value within the member record when generating documents of type "member".

2. Managing Members

Members within the Secretary Module are different from the members of your website (Website Members), in that they refer to only members of your Lodge or Chapter. To distinguish them within this guide, they are referred to as "Lodge Members".

They are distinct from your website members, in that a website member does not necessarily become a member as far as the Secretary Module is concerned (e.g. the website member may be a visitor); and you may have members listed in the Secretary Module that do not have website user accounts.

Secretary Module members can however, be linked to their corresponding website member's user accounts, and you can import your Secretary Module members from your list of website members to make things more convenient.

NOTE: Lodge Members are shared between the Secretary Module and the Accounting Module.
Changes in either module will affect changes in the other.
