Getting started with club membership, 2 users per account
I'm preparing to create a membership registration process for our dog club of about 600 members. I would like to use an existing membership database (Excel spreadsheet) as a means of verifying membership status. I have been successful in importing the spreadsheet into a MySQL database and am currently using it as on a member look-up (search) page. Now I would like to add my additional fields to the database such as userid, password, acess level, etc.
One of thing I don't know how to handle is, the club membership allows for a single or household (dual) membership. So a record in the database will have one mailing address but can have two members. Member1_email, Member2_email, Member1_Judge (Yes/No), Member2_Judge (Yes/No).
My goal is to create a system where each of the two members has their own UserID tied to the single membership record. Either member (or just the primary member if that’s easier) could update their own membership information such as email address, mailing address, telephone number, etc.
I would also like to assign an access level to each individual member, so if that person joins a committee he/she can access that committees internal webpages.
Also I would also like to assign other information (by way of fields in the database) to an individual, such as if that person is a Judge. Then in the member look-up page a person could search on members that were judges.
My first step is to setup the existing membership database with additional columns I need.
So my first questions are: is the above doable by a non-programmer? How do I distinguish Member1 from Member2 (in the same record) for the login setup? What other suggestions can you give me?
PS: I am using DreamWeaver CS5 and own most of the WA extensions (SuperSuite and then some).
