Holly's Helpful Hints: How To Find People

The collective knowledge of our members is staggering so it's no wonder that the top activities in the site all have to do with networking! Building your network circle is easy when you the Member Search page!

Here's how to start connecting with other community members.

Locate the members menu at the top of the community and select "member search."

Fun tip, if you just click on the word "members" at the top of the menu, it will also take you to members search.

Once on the member search page, you have two search options. You can either search by a person's name using the members search bar:

Or you can search using the series of search filters, located on the right side of the page (this screenshot is just a sample of the first sets of filters):

Remember, the results of our members search are only as good as the information community members provide in their profiles. If you haven't updated your profile or product interest in awhile, now's the time! You can do this from your MyCommunity page.

280 as of right now! Wonder if that will grow if people fill in more of their profile info!

UPDATE
The criteria has changed since I answered this on 100 miles of 46202 and animal welfare and I don't think the non-profit or vertical had registered yet when I got the results. So just the 100 miles from 46202 resulted in 280 and this morning it is up to 281 - I was curious - I'll answer again.

My new answer based on anyone in the community who works in an arts and cutlure organization as a database administrator, using Altru, within five miles of 80238.
is 2

RE data admin with 100 miles of 46202 is 29, but zero are animal welfare when I plug in the criteria. ?

Still on my wish list to have a 500 mile criteria for those of us in more 'rural' areas. :)

I've reworded my testing criteria in the post. Try again. The search definitely returns results!

I have 0 results as well, when entering all the criteria.
  • Posted Thu 12 Jan 2017 02:29 PM EST
I get 0 results as well

Zero based on the criteria.
Different criteria, Altru, membership management, within 100 miles of 95110 = 5
Using the new criteria: 2, Christopher Wink and Gilliam Armstrong
I use Chrome

I get 0 results. It goes from 61471 to 544 once I check Animal Welfare, then to 225 when adding DBA, then to 94 when adding RE, and then to 0 when I add in the radius criteria. I get 280 with just the radius criteria. (And 29 DBAs using RE in that radius...but adding Animal Welfare returns 0 again.)
