Members Management Overview
There are two layers of Members Management in Fast Member. The basic WordPress user management and the Fast Member management.
- The management of WordPress users which is the basis of all site based user permissions and passwords. Your site users are managed from the default WordPress users area and is the basic way all users are handled within WordPress. If you delete a user here they will also be deleted from Fast Member
- The management of the users within the Fast Member products. Fast Member will see all the WordPress users on your site and make them available for adding to your products. Deleting users from Fast Member products will not delete them from the main WordPress user base.
Managing users in WordPress is dealt with in many places online, as such this tutorial will assume an understanding of basic WordPress user management features such as user roles, updating profiles and passwords.
Most Fast Member related member management functions are carried out from the Members / Affiliates area.

Import and Export Members
Import Members – you can bulk import members to your products using a CSV file.

Filters and Search
You can also filter the members list by product type and by a specific user email address. The filters will then show either all members of a specific product or all products for that member.
From the members list you can also delete members from specific products, advance their content ‘drip day’ and adjust their product related affiliate commissions.
Manually Add Member
Below the main Members list you have the options to manually add members to products.
You can add members to multiple products and you can select multiple members at one time.
