How membership status affects available functionality

When someone visits your Wild Apricot site, the options available to them depends on whether they are a member, a contact, or someone not in your database. If they are a member, then their options are further defined by their membership status. A member can see their membership status on their member profile. A member's status can be updated manually by an administrator or automatically by the system .

The table below summarizes the functionality available to different kinds of visitors, in the absence of any other restrictions you may have manually applied while setting up site pages, membership levels, and events.
