VSys Live pages

A listing of pages that meet given criteria

The idea behind these listings is to let you easily display records associated with each volunteer, and give you a lot of flexibility in how that's done. Different listings blocks have different filters available based on the type of information that they display. There are four ways that listings blocks get displayed in VSys Live:




A description for your own purposes; not used by VSys Live.


As sortable display, As HTML table, As merge with header and footer, As dynamic banner.


Shown at the top of the listing.

Title hyperlink

If a valid URL is entered here, the title will become a hyperlink to that URL.


Choosing a built-in icon here will display that icon above the listing.

Icon size

Size of the icon, in pixels.


Depending on the type of data being displayed here, you have the option of showing the site visitor:

Logged-in user: that user's information only.

Named team members: if "Named teams" are enabled, and the visitor is a team, shows the visitor information about the people in her team.

Specific relationships: Selecting one or more relationships here such as "Child" will show the site visitor the information about people who are related to the visitor with these relationships. Use these to let a parent see his children's information, or spouses to see each other's data.

As supervisor: Only available for hours, assignments and others that have a "Supervisor" property, using this shows records for which the current site visitor is a supervisor.

Show to

Determines whether logged-in, anonymous (not logged-in) or all visitors can see this block. (Note that most listings blocks are only applicable to logged-in visitors.)


Because items can be inherited from a template page, you don't set the position of an item within each region directly, instead you give it a "weight". If more than one visible item is in the same region, VSys Live will sort them by weight with the lightest ones (lowest weight) at the top.

Columns to show

Check one or more pieces of data about each item that you want displayed. Only applicable for displaying as HTML table or sortable display.


Set the initial sort order of items in this list.

Modify column names

When VSys Live shows this list, it uses built-in names for each column of data. Clicking this link lets you change the name of individual columns as they're displayed.

Display even when empty

By default, a listing is not shown at all if it has no content. Checking this will result in VSys Live displaying the block even if there are no records in it.

Others (for example Attributes, Maximum days in the past, etc.)

These will vary based on the type of listing selected.


For your own purposes; not shown on VSys Live.

Data in a listing can't be edited: these are only meant to display data.
