As a Higher Logic user who likely belongs to one or more communities with dozens or even hundreds of other members, you'll likely meet a lot of great people you'll want to keep in contact with. Fortunately, staying connected with other members is easy, and is as simple as adding them to your Contacts List. Let's learn how.
How to add a Contact
There are several ways to add someone as a Contact:
NOTE: Adding a Contact is not an immediate action. With all the methods described below, the "Add" action sends an email invitation to the user letting them know you want to connect with them. The recipient must accept the invitation in order to be added to your Contacts.
1 - From a user's profile
You can access user profiles a number of ways: Generally, wherever a user's name is associated with something, whether it be content they've contributed or network you both belong to, it's provided as a hyperlink to their profile.
Click these links to view their profile, and from there, click Add as Contact to send the request.
2 - From the Member Directory
After performing a search, you'll be able to add any resulting users as a Contact.
3 - From a community's Members tab
Connecting with members of a specific community is especially easy, as all of a community's members are listed on its Members tab; from there, all you need to do is click the Add as Contact button to send the associated user an invitation to connect.
4 - From Discussions and Libraries
When viewing Discussion posts and Library Entries, you can select Add Contact from the Actions menu next to their name.
View & manage your Contacts
After someone has accepted your invitation and has been added as a Contact, you can view and manage their Contact record on your profile's My Connections > Contacts page.
There, you can:
- Click their name to view their profile
- Send them a message
- Remove them from your Contacts List
