Membership Classes - ORS/OCIS
Membership classes are used to group membership programs into convenient categories. For example, separate membership classes can be configured for airline frequent flyer programs, for property guest loyalty programs, or for other kinds of membership programs. Before membership program types can be created (Configuration> Profiles> Memberships>Types) you must define the membership classes that the programs belongs to.
Select Configuration>Profile>Memberships>Classes to display the membership classes that have been configured and to configure new membership classes.
The Membership Class screen shows the following information.
