Create a Custom Welcome Message

A Welcome Message is the first point of interaction between your community and its members. Just as it's important to make a good first impression when meeting someone in person, the same is applicable within your online network. This initial message helps set the tone for what you'd like this community to accomplish as a group.. Use the following guidelines below to make your own engaging & interesting message, getting members excited from the moment they log on.

Step 1: After Logging in to Your 360Alumni Community Website

On the top-right navigation menu click "Admin," then "General Settings."

General-Settings

Step 2: On the Right Side look for Custom Welcome Messages

The "Custom Welcome Messages" dialogue box contains a pre-populated default message, which you can choose to alter at anytime you like. A few points to include in the community welcome message:

  • Community background information
  • Links to how to guides like social sign-ins, updating profile, etc.
  • Synchronizing data from Facebook and Linkedin
  • Joining Groups, upcoming Events, Campaigns, etc.
  • Any particular tasks that you want your users to complete upon login

You can find a default message to use as a starting off point below:

Welcome to the Community!

We're glad you're here. Please take the time to complete your profile so you can connect with fellow alumni and make the most out of your experience.

If you need a place to get started, we recommend checking out the directory to find your friends and peers, joining your local chapter's group, RSVP'ing to an event, and checking out the mentorship board. If you have any questions on how to use the community, please don't hesitate to contact our community providers at support@360Alumni.com.
