Add communities and beneficiaries to a project


This workflow will walk you through the process of adding communities and beneficiaries to a project.


How to enable communities option in default template?

If you are using the IFRC template, then there is no need of the below modifications. Skip to the Adding Communities section. But if you are using the default template, its most likely that you won’t see them by default. You will need to follow the below steps in order to see those options

1)Go to web2py directory in your system.

2) Once there, go to applications -> eden -> private -> templates -> default.

3) Here open the file ‘’ in a text editor.

4) In this file, you’ll have to find the following lines and remove the # (number sign) from the starting of these lines.

settings.project.mode_3w = True = True

5) Save the file and restart web2py.

Now you should be able to see those options.
