Unlock the Newsletter so you don't have to be logged in

Postby strj500 » Sun Oct 13, 2013 7:55 am

Unlock the Newsletter so you don't have to be logged in to view it. It would be nice if people could go the newsletter without having to be logged in and also I think someone suggested to me that people could see what's going on in their wards (or something like that was suggested). Nothing in a newsletter should be confidential to just people in that ward.

I think the various privacy laws in different countries can make that problematic.

Without people logging in the computer system would know newsletter pertains to you.

This would mean having to go through thousands of different wards just to find the news letter for you ward. I know that the program could be written so that you could go through several steps to finally arrive at the news letter you wanted to view. But that would mean many more steps for something that really does not apply to anyone but the members of a specific unit.

There could be confidential or sensitive information posted on the newsletter, such as PDF directories, contact info for leaders, times and places where children's activities are held, etc.
