How to do an advanced search



Roles: All

Process overview:  This process allows a member to search for other members. It allows for searching using more fields than the basic search, but the outcome is the same: the ability to view a member’s profile.

‘This search can be made using the follow- member number, location, name, postcode, date of birth, gender, email address, membership status, role (at least one of which is required to make the search).

The results of this search can also be sorted by a chosen field.

This user guide also shows how to search for suspended members. This option is only available to Commissioners.

Please note: The ‘My members’ button allows you to see all people within your hierarchy. If you have more than one role, you may need to change the role in the ‘My roles’ dropdown box to access the appropriate hierarchy information. For example, if you are an ADC and a CSL, you will need to have the District role selected to view the District, or the CSL role selected to see the other Leaders and Section Assistants in your Pack.
