Forum Instant Updates

Posted By Rebecca O'Donoghue, Saturday, April 12, 2014
Did you know you can get instant email updates on new topics and comments in your group forums? There are separate settings depending on whether you would like to be updated on the creation of new topics in a forum, or the addition of new comments on a particular topic.

To receive emails about new topics, navigate to the forum's main page, and click "Subscribe to Instant Updates" under the Forum Actions dropdown menu.



To receive emails about new comments on a particular topic, navigate to the topic page, then click "Subscribe to Instant Updates" under the Thread Actions dropdown menu.



In either case, if you are already subscribed to that forum or topic, the menu option will instead say "Unsubscribe from Instant Updates".



Now you'll be up-to-date on what's happening in your group's forums!

Did you know that you can use forums to carry online an online discussion in your Round Table or System User Group?  Once active, forums may be found on your group's homepage.Forum Screenshot

You may post a reply to a forum by joining the Round Table or System User Group (click the "Join Group" at button located at the top of the group's page after you're logged into the MLA website).   Once you're logged into the MLA website, Reply or QuickReply should appear when you're reading a specific post. If you want to post an image in a reply, follow the link to "Reply Using Full Editor."   This will display an editor window. In order to post images, scroll down past the main editor and look for another pane that says Attach Image(s) and/or File(s). This will allow you to drag and drop onto it or browse to images on your computer. Images in postings will show up as thumbnails and you can click through to see the full size.  See this screencast for a demonstration on posting images to forums.

Print Your Annual Meeting Invoice

Posted By Verletta S. Kern, Friday, March 07, 2014
http://screencast.com/t/GeFY3VMDVqw

All registrants should have received messages from yourmembership.com with a link to their receipt.  If this is not readily available, you can easily go online:

  • Log into www.musiclibraryassoc.org
  • Click on "Manage Profile"
  • Under "Invoicing, Payments & History" click "Invoices"
  • In the invoices screen, filter by "Any" (the default is "open," so you need to choose "any")
  • The invoices will display. Click the second icon from the left to see each invoice and then print it.
Watch a short video of how to print your invoice.

As always, you can call the Business Office with questions at 608-836-9000.

Keep the Conversation Going!

Posted By Verletta S. Kern, Friday, March 07, 2014
It was great to see so many of you in Atlanta for great program and great conversation!  I would like to encourage you all to keep those conversations going throughout the year using the MLA website. Here are a few ways to make this happen:
  • Join a Round Table or System User Group by logging into the MLA website and clicking the "Join Group" link in the top center of each Round Table or System User Group page.
  • Share your work with MLA membership and beyond.  Committees, Round Tables, System User Groups and Task Forces may create a blog, forum (online discussion board), calendar of events, file libraries of files or links, or custom webpages.  Instructions on how to set up these features are available under the help menu of the MLA website.
  • Build out your MLA Member Profile.  Put a face with your name and share your expertise with other MLA members by building out your member profile.  Instructions on building out your MLA profile are available under the help menu of the MLA website.
  • Share your photos.  The MLA Web Committee would love to do a better job of showing who we are and what we do.  To this end we encourage you to consider submitting photos of you and your friends from the annual meeting, photos of you and your collections, photos of you teaching, and more.  Help us put a face to MLA!  When submitting your photos, we ask that you also fill out our photo permission form to make sure we have your permission to display your photo on the website.
  *   Set up a private work space to share your work internally.  The new website offers the ability to set up private work spaces for committees and task forces to share documents, have online forums (online discussion boards), and more with just members of their group.  This is a great place to store your Board reports and working documents.  Contact webeditor@musiclibraryassoc.org for more information on setting up a private work space for your group.

For more information throughout the year on ways you can use the new website, subscribe to the Web Committee's blog.  We look forward to exploring new ways of sharing MLA's work via the new website.

Accessing your financial transactions

Posted By Paul A. Cary, Wednesday, February 19, 2014

One of the great things about the new web site is that you can now access your transactions. Sign into the site, and click Manage Profile in the left column. Now look for the Invoicing, Payments & History section. What you see here will depend to some extent on what actions you’ve taken, but you might see links to Invoices, Membership, Event Registrations, and/or Donations. For example, you can print a copy of your confirmation for the Annual Meeting, find out when your membership expires, print invoices or pay them online, and see a history of your donations (since we moved to the new platform).

One note: you may notice that the server address changes from musiclibraryassoc.org to https://musiclibraryassociation.site-ym.com/. That is to be expected, and indicates that you are on the secure server side of things.

Need help? Please contact the Business Office.

Troubleshooting sign-in and password issues

Posted By Paul A. Cary, Wednesday, February 19, 2014

When you are on the MLA web site, the left-hand pane will show whether you are signed into the site. If you are signed in, that pane will display links to your profile and other personalized information. If you aren’t signed in, you should see a prominent sign-in box. If you check the Remember Me box, the system will remember you and sign you in automatically (on this computer) for a set period of time.

If you have forgotten your password, just click on that link. The system will ask you for your email address, and send you a link to reset your password. If you do reset your password, the new password will have to meet the system’s requirements, which are at least eight characters, with at least one of them being a number. One note of caution: for most of you, your username will be the same as your primary email address, however this is not always the case. I have seen instances where the username was one email address, but the primary email (where the password reset link will go) is another. If you need to know your username, please contact the Business Office.

In order to sign out of the system, go to the For Members menu and select Member Logout. Please let the Business Office or the Web Manager know if you need any further help.

The MLA web site offers several benefits to members of the organization. Members can search the online directory to locate contact information for other members of the organization or to get in touch members within their region. Learn more about how you can search the online directory by reading our help guide. Members also have online access to Notes: the Quarterly Journal of the Music Library Association and the Ashgate Discount Program.  Access to all of this information is yours with the use of your MLA username and password.
