What are Unit Friends?

Unit Friends are MyCouncil members who have, in general, been authorized to see private unit page content and are on the unit's mailing list. Think of Friends as a mini membership system for your unit's home page.

What is Private Content?

Certain areas of your unit's Home Page, by default, are private - For example, the Events List and the Files areas - A unit may choose to make these areas public, but if they are private then only Friends may see them and access the content inside them.

How are Friends created?

Once the Primary Unit Leader has your unit's Home Page set up, Parents, Committee Members, Scouts, etc, may apply to be Unit Friends.

To apply to be a Unit Friend a person must first have a MyCouncil membership - [click here to create a MyCouncil membership] - and be signed in.

The person then visits the unit's Home Page and clicks the Friends menu item. Once on the Friends area, a person may then submit a Friends Request to the unit. The unit leader or designated moderator receives the Friends Request and may then sign-in to Approve or Deny the request. Once approved, the person is then a Friend of the unit. The unit may also Block members from submitting further requests.
