Admin screens in Wild Apricot share certain elements. You can use these elements to jump to another admin screen, to obtain help and technical support, and to view item lists and item settings.
Using the admin view menu
Wild Apricot admin screens are grouped into pop-up menus according to their functional area.
You can jump to another admin screen by selecting the appropriate option from the menu bar along the left.
The menu option for the current screen will appear in blue along with top, along with the other options grouped under that menu. The name of the menu will appear blue within the menu bar on the left.
You can collapse the menu bar by clicking the left chevron just above the menu.
To expand the collapsed menu bar, click the right chevron.
Accessing the Website module
The Website module is a self-contained module within Wild Apricot. To access the Website module, click Website within the menu bar on the left.
Website options do not appear as menu options within the Website menu, but as menu options within the module.
When you are editing a site page, the Website menu options will disappear to free up more design space. Once you save or cancel your changes, the menu will reappear.
To return to the main admin menu from the Website module, click the Home icon.
Using the Account menu
The Account menu appears in the menu bar on the left.
When you hover your pointer over the Account menu, a number of account-related options appear.
Choosing the Manage account administrators option allows you to manage all your administrators from a single screen.
Selecting the My profile option will take you to your contact profile. For more information, see Contact details.
The Account & billing option will display your account number and can be used to take you to the Account screen where you can change your billing plan and billing details, or delete your account. You will need your account number if you contact Wild Apricot for technical support.
Selecting the Change password option will take you to a screen where you can change your password. For more information, see Passwords.
Selecting the Log out option will log you out of your Wild Apricot account. Your Wild Apricot site will appear as it would to any visitor who is not logged in.
