Why connect your OSM account to the district?

There are several advantages to linking up your section or group account to the district is a good idea:

  • You'll receive a 10% discount on your subscription
  • It allows you to share some of your data with the district (such as membership numbers, leader information etc...) to help with planning and group support
  • It makes life easier when you need to transfer young people, young leaders or adult volunteers between sections and/or groups

How to connect your OSM account to the district

Please note - you'll need to be an administrator on your OSM account in order to do this. If you're not sure who is your account administrator, speak to your GSL or whoever set up your account.

1. You'll need to set up your section with an OSM account if you don't have one already. You can register for a free account here.

2. Email us to let us know that you're ready to connect your account:  We send you a special discount code.

3. Log on to OSM and head to Settings > Upgrades > Discount Codes where you'll see a space to add your discount code.

Don't worry if you already have a subscription with OSM, as your old subscription will be used up first, so you won't be paying twice.

4. You're all done! You'll now be able to access new features and your data will be shared with the district.
