Managing Corporate Memberships

Managing Corporate Memberships

Note: The X-CD terminology 'Company' or 'Companies' correlates to an organization(s) and Corporate Membership is used to identify an organization with a membership that is tied to a business entity. Your system may use slightly different terminology on the front-end to display to your end users, but in the admin interfaces, the X-CD terminology will use Company/Companies and Corporate Membership.

To manage individuals affiliated with a company, refer to the Manage Companies help section - Click HERE
If the Company does not exist yet, you must create the Company BEFORE being able to allocate the Corporate Membership to the company.
Refer to How to Add a Company - Click HERE, then return to this help article.
