Yes it will display on the frontend, I just did all of the developing on the front end. So you can also log in through the member login on the front-end and view the dashboard as well. https://www.peanutsusa.com/?option=com_civicrm&task=civicrm/user&reset=1 . If you try to view this link without being logged in you will get an access denied page from civicrm.

Hey Tyrell,

 

I like the ‘sound’ of all this, and will give it a good look tomorrow or Thursday. Upon first glance, though, my question is ‘is this a representation of some User/Member screens on with website frontend? That’s where we expect our members to be working from.

Subject: Re: Joomla + CiviCRM Member Access

Good afternoon,

I've been working on the civicrm dashboard for the member fuffillment feature you requested and want to get some feedback. If you sign in and then go to https://www.peanutsusa.com/administrator/?option=com_civicrm&task=civicrm/user&reset=1 you will see your user dashboard. 

Underneath your name you will see a link to edit your contact info. That link takes the user to a form where they can edit their title, phone and email. It also displays the organization information but does not allow the user to edit it.

If you go back to the civicrm dashboard shows all the organizations you have an employee to employer relationship with. If you have co-workers or partners under that same organization then they will show up under that organization. To see an example of this you can view Andrew's profile https://www.peanutsusa.com/administrator/?option=com_civicrm&task=civicrm/user&reset=1&id=2.  At the end of each row there are actions the logged in user can use on that contact. If the logged in user is not the primary contact for that organization, the only option they have is to view that user's dashboard. However, if the logged in user is the primary contact for that organization then the use has options to edit each employee's contact information and to disable the relationship between that employee and that organization. A primary contact can also disable their own relationship with the organization. I wasn't sure if you wanted the primary contact to be able to edit the organization's information or not so I left that out but I can easily add that option back in. If you click the edit contact information for a employee it will take you to the same form that you would use to edit your own contact information.

There are also other options in addition to showing your contacts and organizations. These include:

Your Groups

Your Events

Your Contributions

Your Memberships

Your Pledges

Your Personal Campaign Pages

Your Assigned Activities

I disabled all these for now but I can add the ones you want to back into the user dashboard. Let me know if this is what you where shooting for.

Hi Gene,

Tyrell was working on the self-fulfillment features last week and is much of the way through it.  He'll be in touch today or tomorrow with an update.

Take care,

Andrew

Hey Andrew,

 

Yes. I will want you to go ahead with it… in time. I’ll find a spot for it on our priority list. The next priority, though, is the member self-fulfillment stuff. I sent information to you on that last week about the fields we’d like them to be able to edit, etc. If you’re in the office tomorrow, maybe we can have a quick discussion on that?

 

Let me know,

 

Gene

Hi Gene,

I was.  I think I gave you a super-rough guess at it being about 15 hours.  I have good news--I think it should be more like 10-13 hours to build what you need.  You'd be able to say which membership types and statuses qualify for a role, and whether to include employees of those members.  The existing plugin uses deprecated Joomla code and a deleted version of the CiviCRM API, so it will be more efficient to start from scratch.  I think this would be broad enough to release to the larger CiviCRM community either as a separate plugin or within core.

Let me know if you want to go ahead with it.

Take care,

Andrew

Hey Andrew,

 

Were you able to look at this Joomla ACL issue a little closer last week?

Yeah, let’s take a look at that. That will be billable to APC. I’d like to have clear costs in mind.

 

Thanks,

Hi Gene,

I just spoke with Andrew about the estimate to get this up and running for 4.4. He thinks it will be around 15 hours. It could be less but we haven't looked at the code yet. If you need something more specific we can take an hour and look at it and let you know.

Thanks, Jane

  • The Virginia Diner

    An interview with Christine Epperson, President of the Virginia Diner

    APC: This year the Virginia Diner will be celebrating its 85th Anniversary

    The Virginia DinerCE: The Virginia Diner is an important part of Virginia history and there are several special events being planned to mark the anniversary.  There will be two open houses, one from April 25-27 and the major one will be from September 25-28.  We will feature our peanut products and the food for which we have become famous – chicken, ham, biscuits and peanut pie. Special guests and elected officials will be in attendance. Make plans to attend the 85th Anniversary! 

    APC: The Virginia Diner started out as a small diner in a railcar in 1929, when did peanuts become a major part of the business?

    CE: The Diner has been cooking and selling peanuts since the late 1940s.  The peanut part of the business grew out of the Diner, as travelers requested peanuts be shipped to them.  My parents bought the business in 1976. At that time, the mail order part of the business was mostly fourth quarter seasonal with everything still being done in the Diner kitchen utilizing many of the restaurant employees.  It was in the mid-1980s before we had full time staff hired for the peanut side of the business. Today, we provide sample bags of peanuts for diners in the restaurant. The Diner is a whole entity, you can’t have one without the other.

    APC: Is the mail order peanut business larger than the restaurant business, and when did this occur?

    CE: The peanut side is about 80% of our sales now.  Peanuts became a larger business in the mid-1980s. We printed our first "catalog" in 1984. Prior to that, we mailed letters with order forms and yellow envelope –sized cards with our products on them.

    APC: What kinds of peanuts do you use and what are some of your top selling products?

    Virginia Diner Peanut PieCE: We use only Super Extra Large peanuts and we have a production facility for most of our products. The salted peanuts are our best sellers, followed by the double dipped chocolate peanuts and butter toasted peanuts.

    APC: Are Virginia Diner peanuts sold nationwide?

    CE: Yes, but pockets of the business are in large metropolitan areas. We sell to resellers (particularly on the west coast due to shipping costs), internet sales, corporate gifts, home buyers and fundraising groups.

    APC: The American Heart Association has awarded your peanuts the "Heart-Check Food Certification". How has this impacted sales? 

    CE: This is very new and exciting and we are the only peanut company thus far to receive this.  There has been a lot of interest at wholesale shows, but it is too soon to tell.

    APC: Who developed your tag line, "A Legend in a Nutshell since 1929", which your firm has lived up to?

    CE: My father, now deceased, was a visionary.  He came up with the tag line, as well as first naming our product gourmet. He received a phone call from Moscow back in 1977. The ambassador wanted our Virginia Super Extra Large Salted Peanuts shipped to him for a banquet.  My father said that if our peanuts were being served alongside caviar and champagne, then by God we were gourmet! He was also the first among the peanut companies to lead the way to the world wide web.  We were on CompuServe in 1993, DOS, and then Windows 3.1.

    APC: How has APC membership helped your business?

    CE: Membership has given us a wonderful source of information. Helped us reverse the decision to keep peanuts out of the Boy Scout Jamboree in DC (where we sold).  It provides a resource for vendors and to our customers.  Membership also provides us with educational materials, and funding for the Ag schools which assist us with various projects.  And it has helped us prepare a response regarding peanut allergies in the schools when we had a school division threatening to not use our fundraiser.

    APC: Anything else you would like to add?

    GC: We are the oldest continually run roadside Diner in Virginia.
