This is what I would like to have:
1) Help me select an open source script to use as a starting point. Need to make all changes in the codes to fit
a. Fill the form and when they submit, it creates a new record in the database
(with pending to be approved)
b. That is all members/applicants can do (without a logon)
c. Paypal option
3) Our Staff:
a. Can search profiles
b. Advance Profiles Search
c. View/Edit profiles, send emails, make a match between profiles, and add comments
4) Log Activities and display on profile
a. Log all activities on profile (comments, Emails sent and received, edited made
(data before and after)…
i. Each on can be displayed on a tab within the profile
ii. Email to be sent daily to admin with changes made to profiles
Also, before you start: You will need to Copy current website from hosting GoDaddy to BlueHost…
- minor changes will be made (logo, menu bars, and wordings)
This is how we currently do our work:
• We have matchmaking (for marriage) site. On website, we have an application form to apply to join us… just like you see in any dating website… but that is all on the website! Only our staff search and update profiles.
• Once the form is filled, we get an email with all the information that user (new applicant) fill.
• Our staff, manually enter the data into our main MS Excel sheet (off line) sheet. (see sample – attached)
• Our Staff search profiles and update Excel database
o There is a comment Sheet within Excel they update comment for each applicant.
Problem with current flow:
• Each column is a field and each row is a member/applicant:
o Can not to each applicant/row.
o Hard to follow – back and forth to review all fields for the row.
• Since it is off-line, staff in different locations can not see each other work.
• Easy to change a field without notice (by mistake).
