In this article, we are focusing on how to edit each section of your listing. The more information you log into this portion of your listing, the easier it is for members to find and join your community.

Connecting with other listings on WayBase is an important way to demonstrate your collaboration and highlight those listings you are intentionally connected with. The goal isn’t high numbers of connections, but to truly display those you are connected or aligned with in some kind of mutually beneficial relationship (e.g., they are in your budget). Your listing’s connections are public and help visitors on WayBase get to know a bit more about your listing. Either listing can remove this mutual connection on WayBase at any time.
There are 3 types of connections on WayBase.
- Parent Connections: Listings that have authority over or oversee elements of another listing such as: staff, policy, finances, or theological statements.
- Child Connections: Listings that report to or are a sub-ministry of another listing in some way. A child listing will have a parent listing that provides a level of oversight over one or more of the following: staff, policy, finances, or theological statements.
Affiliations: Listings that are affiliated or affirming in some way to another listing in a peer-to-peer collaborative and/or mutually beneficial relationship. These can include formal or relational agreements. (Parent or child connections should not be repeated in affiliations.)
