What are Unit Friends?
Unit Friends are MyCouncil members who have, in general, been authorized to see private unit page content and are on the unit's mailing list. Think of Friends as a mini membership system for your unit's web site.
What is Private Content?
Certain content on your unit's Web Site, can be made private - Any content marked as private can only be seen by Friends of the unit. Content not marked as private can be seen by anyone.
How are Friends created?
Once the Primary Unit Leader has your unit's Web Site set up, Parents, Committee Members, Scouts, etc, may apply to be Unit Friends.
To apply to be a Unit Friend a person must first have a MyCouncil membership and be signed in.
The person then visits the unit's Home Page and clicks the Friends menu item. Once on the Friends area, a person may then submit a Friends Request to the unit. The unit leader or designated moderator receives the Friends Request and may then sign-in to Approve or Deny the request. Once approved, the person is then a Friend of the unit. The unit may also Block members from submitting further requests.
