OrganisationsEvery group must have at least one organisation – but organisations are designed to be flexible entities. An organisation can be a church, small business or charity that is located in a certain place.
To add a new organisation, click/tap “ Add a new...” on the Dashboard to open a menu:
- If your church has one main meeting place and no additional buildings, the church itself is the only organisation that you need.
- If your church has a meeting place and additional buildings there are two options. Which option you choose will also depend on how you have set up your groups:
- The organisation is the church and each building (e.g. Main Building, Church Hall and Minister's House) is simply added to the organisation: This approach means that only in the Energy section is it possible to track per-building footprints.
- Or, each building can be its own organisation. In this case you would have a single “Main Building”: This would mean that you can track the footprint of each building across all calculator categories (Energy, Travel, Food, Expenditure, and Waste & Water).
Group Member AccessDepending on the type of group member you are, different options will be available:
|View an organisation's details and carbon footprints – click/tap the organisations's name.|
|Edit an organisation's name and details.|
|Start a new carbon footprint for an organisation.|
|Rename a footprint.|
|Delete an organisation. If the organisation has footprints those will also be deleted. This cannot be undone!!|
|Add new organisations.|
The permissions from Organisations “trickle down” to Footprints – if you can edit or delete an organisation you can also edit or delete its footprints.
