Access & Posting Messages

Who has access?

By default all active staff, board members and trustees who have an AFS single sign on account have access to the In Box in AFS Global. This group of users id defined by their inclusion in the Directory as active stakeholders.

If you would like to give a new board member, trustee or staff member access to the In Box, simply create them as a person in the AFS Directory and assign them an affiliation and a Single Sign-On username and password so that they can sign into AFS systems. For moe information on how to do this, please see the following sections of the site:

  1. The Directory online handbook

  2. Assigning AFS Global Login accounts and access rights
