This will search members by id, username, screen name, and email, respecting the current filters. This will render the Member Manager.

This will take you to the create member group form.

Member Fields

This will allow you to manage your custom member fields.


The icons in the manage column perform actions on the member in its row.


This will take you to the member’s profile.

Bulk Actions

The checkbox in the right-most column of the table selects a button for a bulk action. When at least one checkbox is checked the bulk action dropdown menu and submit button will be made available in the lower righthand corner of the table.


The selected members will be removed. Removing a member will cause a confirmation modal to appear that will summarize the action.
