To make it easy for users to view and message their contacts and access the communities they belong to, these personal connections are accessible from the My Connections menu. Included are three default pages, Contacts, Networks, and Communities, while a fourth page, Mentoring Relationships, is available to enrolled Mentors and Mentees belonging to organizations licensing the Mentor Match module.
Here, you can see each user you've connected with across your site, either by sending invitations they've accepted or accepting theirs.
From here, you can:
- Click someone's name to view their profile.
- Message a contact.
- Remove a contact from your Contact List.
NOTE: Refer to the Connect with Other Users page to learn how to add someone to your contacts.
Users who share a characteristic in common, such as living in the same state, sharing a previous or current employer, or sharing a specific Demographic value, are automatically grouped in a common list called a network.
On your Networks page, you can view the networks you belong to, along with the total number of users in each. Clicking a network's Members button allows you to view everyone belong to it, allowing you to easily connect with others you already share a commonality with.
This page lists each community you belong to. From here, you can click a community's name to access it, view the number of Discussion posts, Library Entries, and members each community has, and click Explore All Communities to see if there are other communities out there you'd like to join.
This page enables you to keep track of your activity in your organization's mentoring program. View and manage requests from individuals who would like to have you as a Mentor or Mentee, monitor your active and/or completed mentoring relationships, and access any requests you may have previously declined.
