Mohican Hills Citizen Association
Useful Background Information

 Background Information:
  • The software that we are using to host the Online Directory, Wild Apricot, is used by over 14,000 membership organizations worldwide.  (Information about Wild Apricot can be found at www.wildapricot.com.)
  • A Mohican Hills Directory, whose source was an Excel file, had been printed over the years. In 2012 we tried to imported this data into the Wild Apricot online Directory data base.  However, we ran into enough problems doing this that we stopped this effort and just published a printed version of the Directory.  However, the imported data is still in the online database.  When you begin to create your family entry for the Online Directory you may come across this previously loaded data. If it not correct, just delete it and replace it with the correct data.  Also, if you moved into the community after we published the printed Directory, you will have to delete the old data for your residence. 
About Bundles:
  • Each Wild Apricot organization typically has activities that involve a subset of its members.  Wild Apricot uses the neutral term “bundle” for these subsets of members.  In our case our subset of members, or bundles, are our families, regardless of their size.
  • Each family must designate a Bundle Administrator (BA) who will create and maintain their family’s entry in the Online Directory.  None of their activities are complicated or require much knowledge of computer software.  
  • It is important that the BA inform us when their entire bundle entry is up-to-date.  This is very important, because at a certain date (which we will announce) we will delete all family entries that we believe have not been reviewed/updated.
Not Appearing in the Online Directory:
  • In 2012 some families told us that they did not want their family information to appear in the Online Directory.  To be on the safe side, we ask that all families who feel this way to let us know by email.  We suggest that then the Online Directory become public, please immediately check it to confirm that your family information does not appear.  If it still does, let us know.  However, we would suggest you have a skeleton entry in the Directory in case someone needs to contact you in an emergency.

Usually it will take five to fifteen minutes of work for the BA to create their family entry.
