Common Uses

Staff Group Series

A 'Staff' Series is commonly used with an Amplify Website Staff Layout widget for WordPress sites. This allows all Groups added to the Staff Group Series to be displayed on a staff page. A separate Staff Layout widget could be used for a church staff page, and another for a preschool staff page, or a second campus staff page. 

Even if you only have one organization, the Staff Group Series allows members outside the series to be kept off your staff page (ie, your website administrator may not need to be listed on the staff page).
