Navigating Wild Apricot
SHOW ME (4:31)
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 pull-down menus according to their functional area.
You can jump to another admin screen by selecting the appropriate option from the menu.
The menu option for the current screen will appear bolded and underlined, and the name of the menu under which it is grouped will appear with a blue background. Other menu options grouped under the menu will appear horizontally across the menu bar.
When you are editing a site page, the menu will disappear to free up more design space. Once you save or cancel your changes, the menu will reappear.
Using the Account menu
The Account menu appears to the left of the Wild Apricot logo in the upper right corner of admin view.
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.
