Differences between Touch Screen Devices and Desktop Computers

Command icons (or buttons) at the bottom of each page, and alongside member entries in trip lists, are used to execute commands.

On a touch screen device like a smartphone or tablet, by default the first time these icons are touched a speech bubble appears containing a short description of what the command will do. The second time the same icon is touched its command is executed.

On a desktop computer or laptop with a mouse, by default when the pointer is positioned (hovered) over the icon the speech bubble appears and when the icon is clicked its command is executed.

These speech bubbles or hints can be turned off using the turn hints off button on the first page, or turned back on again using the turn hints on button.  This change is remembered between logins.

Membership Processing

Applications for Membership

Manages new applications for Full, Passenger Temporary, or Driver Temporary memberships.

Probationary Member Processing

For the management of the progression of the promotion of Probationary Members.

Membership Renewals

Provides for the renewal of memberships between May and July each year.

Manage Individual Membership Fees

An individual Member may be selected, then their financial status can be managed.

FWDVic Affiliation Fees

Each time a new Membership is processed, a record is kept of the fee due to FWDVic to cover the Public Liability Insurance and possibly its membership fee.  For Temporary Members and Probationary members the fee only covers the PLI.  For the promotion of Probationary Members the fee covers the remainder of the FWDVic membership fee.

"Total paid this year" is the total send to FDWVic as a result of previous use of this page.  At the start of the financial year this will be 0 (zero).

"Total nominally due for payment" is the total of fees due to be send to FWDVic since the last time this page was used to process the fees.  Its "nominal" because the actual fee may change as rules that limit* the total amount due per member are applied.

Under "Payments due to FWDVic" will be a list with an entry for each member whose FWDVic fee is due to be paid.  Any alteration of the fees due to the application of limit rules* will be indicated and the corrections shown.  The ACTUAL total amount due, and a breakdown of the relevant memberships classes are also shown.

There are 4 commands on this page.  For normal operation, only the first 2 are required:

Step 1: Download this List

Downloads a CSV formatted list of the fees due including the personal contact details required by FWDVic.  This file may be directly sent to FWDVic with the payment.

Step 2: Record these Payments as paid to FWDVic

This updates the "Total paid this year" total, and clears the "Payments due to FWDVic" list.

Download Previous Versions of this List

The CSV formatted files downloaded in Step 1 are retained.  All the files downloaded for this financial year and the previous financial year are available to be downloaded again using this command.

Zero Total, Clear Due Payments, and Rebuild

Sets the totals to 0 (zero), then builds the "Payments due to FWDVic" list based on the current membership, and sets the
"Total nominally due for payment" total, as if no fees have been paid to FWDVic this financial year.

* The limit rules are that we only pay the PLI fee once, and the subscription fee to its maximum per Member per financial year.

For example, in one financial year, a member may progress from a Passenger Temporary Member to a Driver Temporary Member to a Probationary Member.  At each stage we could "nominally" pay the PLI fee, but only need to pay it once.  If they also progress to a Full Member during that financial year we could also "nominally" pay the full subscription fee when we have already paid the PLI component.  So, we limit the total to the full annual subscription fee.

The Financial Status Field for the Membership Database

The format for the Financial Status field is:

Life Member the word "life"
Paid up Member
YYYY - the first calendar year of the financial year for which dues are paid.
For example: If dues were paid for the 2011/2012 financial year before it starts in June 2011, or after in Sept 2011 or March 2012, this would be "2011" regardless of the actual calendar year that the payment was made.
Probationary Member
YYYY MMMm... - the calendar year and month of joining.  Only the first 3 characters on the month name are required.
Passenger Temporary Member
YYYY SPONSOR - the 1st calendar year of the financial year of this membership, and the membership number of the sponsoring full member. (eg "2012 83")
Driver Temporary Member
YYYY SPONSOR TRIP1,TRIP2,TRIP3 - the 1st calendar year of the financial year of this membership, and the membership number of the sponsoring full member, and the trip numbers of the trips undertaken (eg "2012 83 103,," for a first trip [must have 2 commas even no  trip]).  If the last trip number is "-", the next trip has been paid for but not selected.
App [form | fee | both]
An Applicant being processed.  The "form" or "fee" specifies which of those items we do have and are hence waiting for the other. If "both" is present, we are just waiting on a button click to convert the application into a Probationary Member.

The format of the Date Joined field is simply the calendar year of joining, eg "2012".
On creation of a new entry, the membership number and name of the new member appears at the top of the page.

Members are financial if they are "Life" members, or the "YYYY" in the Financial Status field is the year of the first half of the current financial year, and in the case of "Driver Temporary" members, they have participated as a driver in a trip in the current financial year.

A "Driver Temporary" member cannot participate in a trip as a passenger without having payed the fee for, and participated in, a trip as a driver temporary member in the current financial year, or payed the "Passenger Temporary" membership fee for that year.

Membership Status

Lists the numbers of members in the possible financial status classes.   Clicking on the List people with this financial status icon will list the members with that financial status.

Hovering the pointer over a members name in these lists shows their phone numbers.  Clicking on their name will go to their directory entry so that their financial status field may be manually modified.


Clicking an item downloads files containing the infrmation indicated in standard CVS format, or as otherwise indicated.

Formatting the Club Directory

The file exported for the club directory is meant to be formatted so that it fits on both sides of a single sheet of A4.  Any spread sheet application should be able to import the CSV file and then format the pages using the following attributes.

Body: 10 point, sans serif (any variety).

Column Headings: 12 point, bold.

Header: “Dandenong Ranges Four Wheel Drive Club, Month Year” in 14 point, bold.

Footer: “Page # of ##”.

Conditional Formatting: Select the area not including the column headings, set conditional formatting condition formula to “iseven(row())”, set conditional formatting style background to a light blue (eg “blue 8” for open office).

Print Range: Select row 1 (Column headings) to repeat on all pages.

Page Formatting: set left and right margins to 0.5 cm, landscape orientation, shrink/expand horizontally to fit page width.


Under construction.

FAQ (Frequently asked questions)

Q: My password wont work?
A: Issued passwords are known to work.  The most commonly they are mistyped because the characters "l", "I" and "1" (lowercase L, uppercase i, and number one) are mistaken, or the characters "0" and "O" (number zero and uppercase "o") are mistaken.  Check you don't have the case lock key on your keyboard depressed.

Q: I get a message that the certificate is not signed, or is not to be trusted, what do I do?
A: For this website it is safe for you to proceed and to let your browser remember that you want to trust it forever. These pages are encrypted for security requiring a certificate that is normally "signed" by a known authority to ensure authenticity. This signing costs a subscription and is not necessary when the web site operator is known to the site users.

Q: Can I select my own Password?
A:  No, the passwords are there to protect yours and other members personal details.  Experience shows that usually when people select their own passwords, they select ones that are too easily guessed.  Anyway, in most cases your browser can be made to remember the password and enter it for you, so you only have to enter it once.  You may have to turn this feature of your browser on (see below).  When you do enter your password for the first time, cut and paste it from the email.  Also, the passwords are designed so they can be pronounced this makes remembering them easier.

Q:How do I turn on password remembering and automatic entering, on my browser?
A: The following table gives some help (The first time you enter your Membership Number and Password, the browser will ask to save them, answer affirmatively.  Next time you login all you will have to do is click on the "Login" button):

Browser Instructions
Safari (iPhone, etc) In the "Settings" app, Choose "Safari" on the left.  Under "General", opposite "Autofill" choose "Names and Passwords". Opposite "Names and Passwords" move the switch on the "ON" position.
Safari (iBook, iMac, etc)
from the Safari application menu, select "Preferences".  Click on the "AutoFill" tab and ensure "User names and passwords" is ticked, Click on the "Passwords" tab and ensure "AufoFill user names and passwords" is ticked.
Firefox In the top toolbar, select "Edit", then "Preferences". Click on the "Security" icon.  Under "Passwords", check "Remember passwords for sites".  You may also want to check "Use a master password" to protect the passwords Firefox collects for you.
Google Chrome Click on the spanner at the right in the navigation tool bar. In the menu that appears click on "Preferences".  In the new tab that appears, click on "Personal Stuff" on the left.  On the right, opposite "Passwords" select "Offer to save passwords", and opposite "AutoFill" select "Enable Autofill to fill out web forms in a single click".
Internet Explorer Click the "Tools" button, and then click "Internet Options". Click the "Content" tab. Under "AutoComplete", click "Settings". Select "User names and passwords on forms", and "Prompt me to save passwords" check boxes. [the "AutoComplete" and "Settings" buttons arrangement may be different depending on the version of IE you have - good luck]
