WHAT EVERYONE CAN DO
Everyone can see what's wanted and offered in the listings by going to the those sections of the Members Area. Everyone can view the News and Events section of the Members Area to see when meetings and socials will be held, for example. And everyone - yes, everyone! - can contact us with feedback, queries or news items of relevance to Bath LETS.
WHAT MEMBERS CAN DO
Members can add, delete or edit their own listings. To do this, choose Update Listings. Let's say you want to offer plumbing; click on Create Offer Listing and enter Plumbing as the title and choose the DIY category. You can then add a description if you wish, as well as limiting the duration of the listing. If you need some ideas before creating offers, have a look at the Inspiration List. Members can update their profile, including adding or deleting a joint member. To do this, choose Member Profile. Members can transfer olivers to another member in payment for a transaction they have made. To do this, go to Exchanges.
Members are given an automatically-generated password for their account, but can change it to something more memorable. Once you've logged in with the random password you've been given you can do this from the Member Profile page. If you forget your password, and have tried several times unsuccessfully the system will automatically reset your password, and give you a new random one and notify you by email. Check your junk mailbox if it doesn't appear in the Inbox! If you don't want to wait for the system to do it, once you've failed to log in after a couple of attempts, you will be given the option to reset it.
WHAT MEMBERS CAN'T DO
Members can't update their own olivers balance. When you've traded with another member, the person who has received the service or item is the one who records it on the Exchanges page or, if they're not using the website, sends the cheque to the LETS Accountant. Once the transaction has taken place, you will see it appear on the page "View My Balance and Exchange History". Hopefully those who are not online can be matched to a buddy, who will help them set up a web-based email address and/or help them manage their account. Becoming a buddy is a significant way of contributing to the scheme.
