Associate AMY Persons with Memberships #1337
In Amy person profiles we have "Affiliation" text field. This is ok for people listing what organization they feel they're a part of at any given time, but hard to use as a basis for linking together records.
I'd like to be able to associate persons with memberships so we can do lookups/reports on the activities of persons (helpers, trainers, instructors) at the member organization. I see this as possibly an interface/UI for the membership lead (at the member org) to add/drop associations of instructors affiliated with their institution/organization.
I also think it would be helpful for the instructors themselves to see associations they're a part of and have the ability to break their association with a member org if they move on to other work somewhere else. Complicating things even further, I think there will some people that have multiple of these associations, so it may be helpful for instructors to be able to credit their activities to one of their possibly many affiliations and also the option of crediting their effort to no specific affiliation.
Lots to discuss here, but I can see this bit of metadata really improving our ability to show member orgs how their trained people are contributing. I can also see it as a boost to instructors as they build a log of effort over time, they can show how and where that effort went.
In order to do that, membership lead would require access to personal data of all people in AMY.
Who would be able to associate an instructor with specific organization/membership? Only admins + membership lead?
Currently I'm working on #1055 which puts effort of assigning trainees with memberships on admins.
What activities/efforts do you have in mind?
