*Only one member information version may be “Active” at one time. If another is made active, then the one that was active is changed to inactive. This is a great way to market your business record listing seasonally or during a special event period for your destination.
- A Member Profile Version may be “cloned” to permit updating one that’s currently active. When a version is “cloned”, all of the information is copied to the clone, including images. This permits the user to do things like change images or delete them in the cloned version without disrupting the live (active) version.
