Overview: While members often have limited people access (such as access to Adult Regular Attenders & Members), it’s often desirable for adults in the family to be able to see their children — even if they aren’t in the specified People permission tag. As long as a family member are not archived, this is possible with the My Profile > Access to My Family Members permission!
A hidden person is visible to family members within their family section:
If the user has permission to see family members and the hidden person is not archived.
The permission is found/given by taking the following steps:
- Go to Account Settings ()> Users & Roles
- Click "Roles" on the left
- Edit the role of choice
- Under the "My Profile" dropdown, check the box for "Access to My Family Members"
A hidden person is NOT visible to family members within their family section:
If the user does not have permission to see family members
If the family member is archived
A couple of examples:
John and Jane Doe have a foster child named Jack. For security reasons, Jack shouldn't be visible on the church's directory and so he's been put in a tag titled "Restricted". People in the "Restricted" tag can't be seen by members. However, John and Jane still want to be able to see Jack's profile within their own accounts. If John and Jane have the "Access to My Family Members" permission, they are able to see Jack.
Anne Smith is a widow. Her husband, Arnold, passed away 6 months ago and the church has archived Arnold's profile. Anne, even with "Access to My Family Members" permission, will not be able to see Arnold.
