controls. Although they may be named differently on different CMSes, the
basic principle is the same.

- register for events through online forms
- view event participants
- subscribe and unsubscribe from mailing lists
- access all custom data (ie see/enter information in custom data
fields in forms)
- access uploaded files (ie view/print content of uploaded files)
- view, create and edit profiles (or profile listings and forms)
