Hello members,I thought I would share answers to some of the basic questions we get about INFORMS Connect and the new platform. If there's anything you're wondering that's not answered here, please post it in this thread. Others will benefit from the answers too.
How do we log in to the new Connect platform? The log-in process has not changed. Go to https://connect.informs.org/home and click Sign In on the top right corner. If you don't remember your login, you will be able to request a password reset on that page.
How do I update my profile? Once you log in to connect.informs.org, you'll see your name on the left side of the page. Click on your name and you'll be redirected to the page where you can add your Bio and add or update your photo. We do recommend that you add your photo as people are more likely to reach out to members with photos. To do so, click on the Actions link under the circle with your initials. From there, you can upload your photo.
How do I access the subdivisions I belong to? Once you log in to connect.informs.org, you'll see the list of your Communities on the left side of the page under My Communities Quick List.
How do I control which emails I receive and how I receive them? Go to your profile and click on My Account and then Community Notifications. Under Notification Settings, you'll see all of the Communities you belong to. Under Discussion Email, you can choose Real Time, Daily Digest or No Email.
How do I make a post? To create a post, just click on the blue Create button at the top right corner and then select 'Discussion Thread'. From there, you can select which community or communities you are posting to.
How do I respond to a post? If you see a post on the Connect site that you'd like to respond to, click on the post and then click on the Reply button in the top right corner.
