This section will guide you through all of the features and settings built into the Chamber Dashboard plugin collection. You’ll learn how to add a Directory of member businesses, an Events Calendar, setup online payments, track key contacts, and more. Each Chamber Dashboard plugin has its own settings, which become available when the plugin is installed and activated so you can build your site using the features that meet the individual needs of your membership organization.
