Step by Step for Jain Centers


Welcome to Jainlink!  We are very happy you have taken the time to begin setting up your Center’s group page on Jainlink. The following is a step by step to help you set up your group page.


1)      If you haven’t already, please register as a member on Next, join the Center’s page which you are affiliated with and will be setting up. Once you have been verified as a member, you will be made an administrator for your Center’s page

2)      Once you are made an administrator you will see a red bar, such as the one shown below.


I have a screenshot here with admin bar circled

This has a drop down menu which has many options. The four categories are:

-    Content Management

-    Photo Management

-    Blog Management

-    Member Management


Let’s start with the first option, content management. Content management includes:

-    Group Descriptions – This category allows you to edit what people see on the welcome page. You are able to add both text and pictures. Please be sure to add the name of your center, address, phone number, and website URL.

-    Custom Pages – These pages can be accessed from the home page from the drop down menu labeled “More In This Group…”  These pages can be used to add information such as Patshala homework and curricula, Calendar of events occurring at the Jain Center, and other pertinent information you would like to add to your site.

-  File Library - Here you can create collections of files that can placed within any of your group custom pages. File collections can be placed in "collaborative" mode, which will allow other group members to add their own files to the collection. Once you have created a collection, simply go to "custom pages" (within group admin options), select the page in which you would like the collection to appear, then associate the collection. You can associate multiple collections with custom pages.


The next category in the drop down list is Photo Management. Here you can create albums of photos of your Jain Center, events occurring at your Jain Center, etc. You can also accept or reject photos posted by other members.


The next category is Blog Management. A blog is a place where members can post their thoughts in a journal style for everyone to see. As an admin, you can see the existing blogs and add new blogs if you wish.


The last category is Member Management. Here you can see and manage who is currently part of your Center, who is still pending to be accepted to your Center, and what each member has done chronologically.


This is the end of the tutorial! I hope you learned how to set up your Center’s group. If you have any questions please feel free to email me, Paras Doshi ( or Yogendra Jain ( 781-856-0769


If you have not done so already, please send us an excel spreadsheet of the names and addresses of all the members in your Center so we can invite them to Jainlink and to your newly created group page!
