Calendar and Events

Posted By Administration, Friday, October 1, 2010

To facilitate collaboration, the site offers a robust calendar and events capability. Critical dates as well as chapter and national events are posted on community wide and group calendars. A main events calendar can be filtered (by a drop down menu) to see events for a selected chapter, CLMA conferences, and educational events. Each group (including chapters) may maintain its own calendar and choose to share or not its events with the community at large. The community calendar contains all events and dates posted (and designated for inclusion in the community calendar) and is available on the top right of every site page. Calendar and event capabilities include:

  • Register for events online
  • Purchase event tickets and items via credit card
  • Pricing may differ for nonmember and member or by member type
  • View event registration attendee lists and comments (if enabled by event administrator)
  • Read comprehensive event information and details
  • View event-specific photo galleries
  • Receive email registration confirmation
  • Receive reminder emails for registered events
  • View and print event location map
  • Read RSS event feeds RSS (subscription is available for the entire community calendar)
  • Add events to Microsoft Outlook (through an ical export)
  • Send event Tell-a-Friend alerts

Member Profiles

Posted By Administration, Friday, October 1, 2010

Member profiles are the foundation of member networking, finding other members, and community interaction capability. A well crafted profile shows other members the range of your capabilities and your commitment to the profession through your involvement in communities of practice. Only ISEH Members have profiles. Non-Members, Guests, and Lapsed Members are not eligible to post member profiles or retrieve member profiles.

Through your profile, you can:

  • Maintain personal and professional information
  • Supply extended biographical information
  • Manage your external social/professional networks (e.., LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter)
  • Select what profile fields are visible to other members and the public
  • Maintain categorized colleague connection lists
  • Use name formats for "company name" or nick/screen name
  • Maintain multiple personal blogs with audio/video sharing
  • Manage group/community/member blog subscriptions
  • Manage your personal preferences and alerts
  • Upload to your personal photo albums
  • Create an affinity email address

You have control over how much information to make available to others and how much you would like to be contacted. However, you create greater professional and business development opportunities by your participation in more groups, balanced by your desire for privacy. The links in Manage My Profile are:

My Personal Page- how your personal profile appears to registered site users
Edit My Profile - update all parts of your profile and hide certain data fields (e.g., email address, home address, personal information)
My Groups - list of communities to which you have registered for, including communities of practice (consulting disciplines, industry specialty, organizational focus and client type), leadership positions, and committees
My Networks - links to your profiles on other social network sites (e.g., Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter) , which extends your access to other professionals and lets others access yours (optional)
My Event Registrations - list of past and future events for which you have registered through the website
My Blogs - list of your personal blogs (optional). Others can comment on your blogs, they are searchable, and others can subscribe to your blogs through RSS
My Subscriptions - these are blogs on the website to which you have subscribed to be notified when new postings are made
My Files & Links - your personal file libraries connected to your profile, most often to attach your company brochures, videos, etc.
My Preferences - this is how you choose to be notified of activities of those with whom you are connected. We suggest that you use these very sparingly, because turning them all on could generate a lot of messages. However, we suggest you turn on "Email me when new messages arrive" and "Email me when someone applies for an opening I have posted" as a minimum
My Messages (XX New) - internal messages received from another member who wants to contact you (number indicates how many were received while you were offline). Click "My Messages" to go to your mailbox and click "(XX New)" to go directly to your Inbox
My Connections (XX New) - you may choose to connect to selected members (similar to Facebook) that provides more messaging options (number indicates how many new requests you have received from people who want to connect with you)
My Photo Gallery - photos you have uploaded and want to share (optional)
Membership Info - indicates your membership type and status of membership. This is where you would renew your membership
Refer a Friend - share with colleagues the opportunity to participate in the ISEH professional development and networking activities. When you use this function to refer a friend to ISEH and they register through the website as a guest or join ISEH, this is tracked, along with those they refer, to a third level

Member profiles are the core of your visibility to other members and to the public. Many characteristics are hotlinked so you can identify all members with those characteristics. for example, if you see in a profile that a member has certain profession, click on that link to pull up a directory of all members with that same profession.

Member Profile

Posted By Baiba Vilne, Friday, October 1, 2010
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 located on the upper right side of any page (if you are logged in) has been organized and constructured 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 great 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 professional description and expand the web visibility of your information. All member profiles are fully indexed by search engines.
