MACTA Launches New and Improved Website
This website is best optimized for modern browsers (Firefox and Chrome are preferred)
December 2013 – We are excited to announce that we have enhanced the design, navigation and usability of the MACTA website. In addition, our new website/database/community platform will provide new features for our members.
How do you login and control your profile?
If you have forgotten your password, please click on the "Forgot the Password" link on the login page. Once you log in, please change your password to something you will remember and be sure to review and update your unique profile.
As a great new member benefit, you can now control the privacy for ALL of your data with MACTA. We set a default, so log into your profile and select what is private, members only or public. Simply click on the icon to the left of the data field and select the proper level. You can list your city/state/zip to the public, and hide your address, for example.
MACTA Membership Directories
We know that the MACTA Membership Directory feature is one of the great benefits to our members. In the new system, there are some great new options for you. Each member can determine where their information shows up. You can select Private, Members Only or Public. So, if you want your city and location to show up, but not your address line, you can now make that selection. Please note that if you do not select Public on an item, you will not return on that search for any public visitors. If you make your city/state members only or private and a public visitor puts your city/state in, you will not show up. The search for name and organization are currently a full word search only – you must put in Evaluation not Eval or Christine, not Chris.
What else can I do?
The new website offers more social networking features to foster collaboration within our community. Key features include a new more customizable member profile, ability to set up your own personal blog, online chat/instant messaging, favorites, connections, wiki-enabled pages, NEW and INTEGRATED forum, group pages, file libraries and more.

Managing Your Organization Profile
Instructional Webinar: Add/Remove Employees From Company Records
The organization’s primary contact has the ability to manage the organization’s profile. These tasks include renewing the membership, making update to the organization’s information, selecting the privacy level of the information and managing the employees.
To access these tasks the primary contact must sign in using the organization’s username and password. As the primary contact you will have been provided with both a personal username and password for access to your profile plus an additional username and password for your organization. To renew membership sign into the website on the right side of the screen, click on manage membership.
To manage your organization’s information, click on the link "manage profile” and then "edit bio”. Here you will be able to make changes to the organization’s information and set the level of privacy. For example, you only what to have the city and state displayed in the public and member search. You would go to the address field and click on the I-con next to the field and select private from the drop down menu.
To manage your organization’s employee list you will need go to the manage profile page and then click on sub accounts. Towards the bottom of the page you will find a list of those individuals associated with your company. There are several things that can be done here; if you click on the person’s name you will be able to view that profile. There are 3 I-cons located next to the person’s name these allow you to update that person’s profile, suspend the person from your organization and detach the person from your organization. Removing a person from your list is a two-step process, first click on the I-con to suspended the person and then click on the I-con to detach the person from your organization. To add a person to your list you can either click on the link "create a sub-account” or click on send and invite.
