As part of our commitment to your success, we’re happy to announce several improvements to WebLink Connect to help you manage your organization more efficiently and effectively. We will roll out these changes in stages beginning Monday, March 25. All customers will have the release by Monday, April 8.
Updated WebLink Login Screens
As we move more of our features into the browser version of WebLink, we are working to consolidate the different interfaces you see and work with every day. After this release, when you log in to the desktop version of WebLink you'll see the following login screen:
The change is only to the look of the login screen; you do NOT need to change your password.
In addition, when you go to www.weblinklogin.com to access the web browser version, you'll have a slightly different login workflow:
First, enter your email address.
Then, enter your password and hit Login. You're in!
Improved Member Password Security
To improve the security and experience your members have in logging in to your Member portal, we are updating our password protection practices to meet current standards. This means that you will no longer be able to see your members' passwords displayed in the database or send them in plain text via email. Instead, we have some new and simple workflows that will empower your members to easily access the members-only features without relying on you:
Set Password: with one click, you can send new or existing members a link that securely gives them the ability to manage their own credentials
The member's password will no longer be displayed in the Password field. This field will appear blank for all members - don't worry, their old password still works! You just can't see it for security purposes. You can enter and save a new username and password on behalf of your member, or you can click the Send Password Reset Email link to allow them to change their own password.
- Members (and related profiles) can create a password as long as they have a valid email address meeting the restrictions that you've put in place to determine who has access
- You can continue to include the existing "Portal Login Credentials" special field in all mass emails out of the system, which will deliver the secure "set password" link to the member

New Browser Dashboard
We asked you recently what metrics matter most to you when it comes to measuring your organization's success. You told us; we took note; and we've created a beautiful, new dashboard tool to help. Now, when you log in to the browser version of WebLink using weblinklogin.com (or clicking through from your database), you'll see a brand new dashboard with Membership, Event, and Finance sections giving you a snapshot of your organization's performance.
