Members How-To: Log In and Use Your Account on the NDCO Website

With our new website, we have included a way for individual orchestra members to sign up for an account on the site so you can:

  • See which events, rehearsals, and concerts you have booked in to

  • Save payment information for easier checkout next time

  • See all the past rehearsals and events you have booked online and/or attended

This post will walk you through how to log in, book rehearsals with your account, view your events, and view your credit card information. See our previous post for instructions on how to create an account.


In the Members Area, check to see if you are logged in.

In order for the above features to work, you have to be logged in to your account when booking rehearsals, so the website knows who you are when booking and can save the correct event information to your individual account.


The login bar will show whether you are logged in. If it says "Log In / Create an Account", you are not logged in. If it says "Hi (your name)", you are logged in.

This area will say "Hi (your name)" if you are logged in.
This is what it looks like when you are not logged in. Click on "Log In / Create and Account" to go to the log in page. There you can enter your email address and password.

See the previous Members How-To for step-by-step instructions on how to log in or create an account.


Once you are logged in, use the dropdown menu to navigate to your account pages.

Your account pages are where you can see information about your account. The available account pages are:

  • My Wallet - See your stored payment information, like saved credit cards.

  • My Events - Upcoming events that you have registered for, and events that you have attended in the past.

  • My Account - Basic account information, such as your name, email address, and phone number.

Click on your name to see the account menu. You can click on any of the menu items to take you to the corresponding account page. You can also use the menu to log out of your account.

In the next section, we will walk through each of the account pages and the actions you can take on each page.

Below are quick links to each section.

 

My Account

Your account page shows your account information, such as your name, phone number, and your email address. To access your account page, click on "My Account" from the dropdown menu from the Members Area page.

Navigate to the Members Area, click on your name, and select "My Account" to visit your account page.

Once there, your account page should look like this:

This is your "My Account" page.

Here, you can update your display name, profile photo, and phone number. Your login email cannot be changed, so if you need to switch to a different email, please sign up for a new account with your preferred email address, and let Pam or someone on the committee know to delete your old account.


To make edits to your account information, type directly in the form fields to change your name or phone number. Click "Update Information" to save the changes.

Type directly into the form fields to update your information. Don't forget to click the "Update Info" button to save your changes!
 

My Wallet

Your wallet is where your payment information is stored, should you opt in to store credit card information when checking out.

Navigate to the Members Area, click on your name, and select "My Wallet" to visit your saved payment methods page.

This will take you to your "My Wallet" page. Here, you'll be able to see all the payment methods you have saved, as well as delete any saved payments you no longer wish the account to store.


Your "My Wallet" page may look different than the example shown here if you have saved payment methods.

If you do not have a payment method saved, simply remember to check the "Save Payment for Next Time" box the next time you register for a sectional or rehearsal.


Below is a screenshot of the Event Registration page for rehearsals and sections. After you put in your credit card information, tick the box at the bottom of the payment section to store your payment card for next time. Once saved, the payment card will be saved to your account, and you can view it in your "My Wallet" page.

At the end of the event registration form, you can tick a box to save your payment information to your account.
 

My Events

The "My Events" page is where you can see your upcoming registered events as well as past events that you have attended.


Remember, if you are not logged in when booking a rehearsal, it will not be saved to your account. To see how to tell if you are logged in, go back to the top of this post where we explain step-by-step how to tell if you are logged in.


To access the "My Events" page, click on your name from the Members Area, and select "My Events" from the dropdown menu.

Navigate to the Members Area, click on your name, and select "My Events" to visit your registered events page.

Once you are there, the page should look like this.


This is your "My Events" page. There are 2 tabs. One tab shows your upcoming future events you have registered for. The other tab shows the past events you have registered for. This view is showing my Upcoming Events.

By clicking "Past Events", I can see the rehearsals and events I have booked in the past.

I can see further details about each event by clicking on the "v" icon which expands the event details.

The "v" icons expand the event to show more details. These icons are available on every event in your "My Events" page. You can use this icon on both Upcoming Events as well as Past Events.

Let's look at how an expanded event with more details looks. Click on the "v" icon beside each event to see the expanded details of that event. You can see details like the time, date, and location of the event, when you booked the event, the number of tickets purchased, your total cost, and any coupons used.

Use the "v" icon to expand the event details and see information like: time, date, location of event; when you booked the rehearsal or sectional; number of tickets purchased, total cost, and any coupons used; links to the event registration page, to download tickets, or to share the event.

Did you know that you can also book rehearsals from the "My Events" page? Scroll down to see a list of upcoming rehearsals and sections that are available to book. These are the exact same events that show up on the Members Area, so you do not need to navigate back to the Members Area page to book a rehearsal.


Did you know you can also book into rehearsals directly from the "My Events" page?
These are the exact same events that show up on the Members Area, so you do not need to navigate back to the Members Area page to book a rehearsal.

 

How to Log Out


To log out of your account, simply select "Log Out" from the menu on the Members Area page. To access the drop down menu for your account, click on your name. This will bring up a menu that lists all your account pages.


And that's it! We hope these account capabilities will help everyone get more visibility into what they've booked for, as well as make all our lives easier for tracking and accounting.


Please let Pam or the committee members know if you have any additional questions, run into issues, or if you would like someone to look at it together with you. We are happy to help!
