System Location: Admin / Clubs
A club (or loyalty club) is the highest hierarchal and most important level of manual member grouping. In more simplistic terms, a club in the SBLP is a formal association of members within the program. A member can exist in no clubs (not recommended), only one club, or multiple clubs, and their club assignment(s) can be changed at any time.
Clubs can be very powerful in targeting members with various rewards, promotions, campaigns and many other items. However, many SBLP clients only have one club, as having multiple clubs can make overall system management a more complex task.
On the aforementioned system location, click "Add Club" at the top of the page to begin club creation. Alternately, click "Edit" within the grid to manage an existing club. Clubs can also be deleted from the edit page.
The initial entry textboxes ask for the club name and the external reference.
- Default Club - Marking a club as the default automatically checks this checkbox when a member is enrolled via the application.
- Check to Disable Manual Assignment - If enabled, members cannot be manually added or removed from this club via the application.
Enabling both of the above options will force all newly created members (via the application) into the club, without a way to manually remove them.
As previously stated, a member can be added or removed from a club at any time, assuming the "disable manual assignment" option is not enabled for the club(s).
