How do I communicate with my connections or other members?




You can send messages to your connections through their profiles or the 'messages' page. If you are contacting a user for the first time go to their profile and press 'Send a message'. Otherwise you can reply to their messages through the 'messages' page (email icon on the top menu bar).

 


You could use Skype for any urgent queries. 

 

If you want to send a generic message or an update to all the people who are connected to you, post that message on the community wall (on your dashboard) instead.
 

 

 

How do I publish skills and start sharing my time or providing services?




First of all, make sure that your provider status is ON. If not, press 'edit' to turn it on.

 

  

If you are not already on the the provider status page, select 'share time & provide services' on the settings menu.

 

Go through all the menu items (below) and update your details and preferences accordingly.

IMPORTANT: If you do not add any skills, your profile will not be displayed on skill searches.

 

  

If you intend to collect payments for your services online, please make sure that you have updated the payment settings as well.

 

If you want more control of your time and availability, you can manage it via the calendar under the ‘Advanced settings’
