How do I private message & send connection requests to others?

Sending Private Messages & Group Chats

  • You can view, respond, and compose new messages. Go to your drop down Profile Menu –> Notifications OR the My Private Messages link on your Personal Dashboard
  • New messages will also show up in your “Notifications” under the Inbox Icon on your main menu, at top right

To send a message to another member of your group:

  • Go to your Personal Dashboard OR the drop down Profile Menu –> Groups
  • In any of the groups that you belong to, click the MEMBERS tab
  • Click the “SEND A PRIVATE MESSAGE” icon to message another group member

Request to Connect

  • In any of the groups that you belong to, click the MEMBERS tab
  • Click the “Buddy Icon” (the one that looks like a person) to SEND A CONNECTION REQUEST
  • The other user must accept the connection request before you can send private messages
  • By default email preferences are set so each user receives an email when they receive a new connection request
  • You do not need to be connected to another member in order to send them a private message

Accepting Connection Requests

  • You will see new connection requests in your “Notifications” – click the INBOX ICON at the top right of your screen
  • Or you can accept directly from your email notification by clicking the link provided
