Our church -- even before Elvanto -- has been working toward a member directory that would include the optional ability for new and existing members to write short introductory paragraphs, about interests, careers, education, life goals, hobbies. I've been trying to set up the Elvanto Member Directory is a way that would enable this, but cannot figure out how yet.
So I'm not sure if this is a feature request, or a "help" request.
Thanks for the email.
I would suggest looking into creating a custom field that they can edit in their 'My Profile' area, and have this field shown in the member directory.
Hope this helps,
