Required Plugins: Business Directory / CRM / Member Manager or Member Manager Pro
Using the Member Updater plugin, your members can claim & edit their own Business listings, creating a much more robust and up-to-date Directory on your site.
3 ways to ‘claim a listing’:
1) Business Editor created at registration
Using either Member Updater & Member Manager plugins together, when a new member joins using the Join Now form, a new Business Directory listing is created. As well, the member is automatically added as a Business Editor on your site.
(NOTE: New Editors must be published before they are able to login and edit their Business.)
2) Member registers as Editor for existing Business
Setup for the Member Updater plugin includes an option to create a ‘claim my business’ or Editor registration page. This page can be shared with your members so that they can register one or more representatives from their organization as Editors for their Business listing in your Directory.
3) Manually connect Business Editor to Existing Business
For existing Business listings, you may prefer to manually connect your member to their Business. Once connected, the member can login using the Member Updater login form and be automatically offered a link to edit their listing.
