Member Profile

Posted By Mark Haas CMC FIMC, Wednesday, October 14, 2009
We have enhanced your membership profile area to provide you greater access to information across the site and expand your visibility on the web. Your profile now has three tabs: My Feeds, My Wall, and My Bio. At login, you will be directed to the the My Feeds page of your profile, which shows you all recent site activity related to your areas of interests. Aggregating content of relevance to you makes it much easier to keep up with recent notices and site additions.

On the My Feeds tab, you can select to see all site activity, activity related just to your connections, or activity from just those groups, such as chapters, communities of practice, SIGs and committees, of which you are a member. The My Wall tab shows all of your recent activity (forum or blog posts, event registrations, groups joined) and comments added by others (similar to Facebook). The wall feature is turned off by default and may be activated by checking the appropriate box under My Preferences. You may delete entries on your wall and make comments on other’s walls. Your profile is now called My Bio.

The My Profile menu (renamed from Manage My Membership) located on the upper right side of any page (if you are logged in) has been reorganized and restructured to provide for streamlined navigation and simplified management of your profile details. Clicking Manage Profile accesses a consolidated, graphical listing of available features and settings. Beyond editing your bio and setting preferences, you can edit your profile content, manage your community groups, messaging and connections, and view your event registrations and membership status.

A new feature is the ability to add custom pages to your profile. You may add up to ten pages, the content of which is controlled by a WYSIWYG editor, is a great way to extend your practice description, add member products for sale (e.g., use a page to advertise a book or seminar), and expand the web visibility of your consulting service offerings. All member profiles are fully indexed by search engines.

  • Manage your connections to other members
  • Email members and connections from the site (if allowed for your member type and group)
  • Send and receive messages from members and groups
  • Create and manage message center folders
  • Manage received messages and attachments
  • Engage others via Tell-a-Friend system
  • Add/allow comments to photo galleries
  • Collaborate with others via blogs, wikis, groups and more
