Leadership positions let you grant your lay leader users additional rights. When a member user with a lay leader profile signs in, leadership positions are used to determine the groups for which the user is a lay leader.

Leadership positions are linked to the positions and elements that you set up for classes and activities in your ACS database. Your Access ACS leadership positions must be the same as those in your ACS database. If you set up a "Teacher" leadership position in ACS, you must also set up a "Teacher" position in Access ACS.

For example, Dylan Parker is the Outreach Leader for the Teen Sunday School class. In ACS People, Mr. Parker is associated with the Outreach Leader position. In Access ACS, the administrator creates an Outreach Leader position.

When Mr. Parker registers with Access ACS, the system recognizes that he has a leadership position and gives him a lay leader profile. This lets him view any individual's record in his class. He cannot access other records unless he has a leadership position for another activity or class.

Note

Your Access ACS leadership positions must be identical to your ACS positions. If you misspell a position name in ACS, you must also misspell it in Access ACS.
