redLIST:Integrations and Incorporations
If you're using redLIST to build a directory of people and community site members, you can use the "Incorporation" section to import fields and user information from three different sources. You can import data from Joomla!'s core User Manager as well as redMEMBER and JomSocial if you have them installed.
There are two methods available to import data from each source:
- Live link - the recommended method, this will first import all custom fields as redLIST search items fields, then import and synchronize the user information for all search items whose names match the names of their respective community member. Any changes made to user info in Joomla, redMEMBER or JomSocial will be reflected in redLIST and vice versa.
- Import - perform the same import as the "Live link" but without synchronizing user information. Changes made in other components will not be reflected in redLIST and vice versa.
To begin the import, simply select the method you wish to use and click on "Go". Note: if you are using the "Import" method, you can manually update "sync" redLIST at any time by clicking on "Go" once again.
Additional integration notes coming soon...
