This tab allows you to manage the member details, including Phone, Photo, Position/Title, About Me (Bio), Website, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Display Email, and Hide Email.


This tab shows what groups that the member is part of. All users are associated with "Site Group" by default, and additional groups can be added/removed under this tab.

Add Members in Bulk

This feature is handy when you have multiple people that you would like to add as members to the site all at once.

Within the Amplify Websites dashboard, navigate to People > Members and select the Bulk tab.

On the next screen, enter each email address one per line. You can also provide first and last names for the accounts by separating these with commas.

Example:, First Name, Last Name

By adding the email address to the Bulk tab, the Member account is added to the current site with no member permissions. Once a member has been added to your Members module, permissions can be added by editing the member.

Members can also be added to a selected group from this screen. 

Note: If the email address already exists, the existing account will be added to your site instead of being created from scratch.
