Here are some links to pages and bits of information that explain some of the workings of Freegle Direct for local members.
Events - how members can add their own event notice
Feedback - system generated statistics about members for other members
Member Ratings - the 'thumbs up, thumbs down' system
Taken Button - when a member uses the Taken button an automated message is sent to all those who have requested the item, including the freegler who has been offered or collected it.
