Who can see my profile and information about me?
The Alumni Mobile App is exclusive to South Kent alumni, and the only way to log in is with your confirmed email address on file with South Kent. This modern alumni directory also gives you the option to make any of your information private in the app (see below).
How do I log in?
You will need to enter your email address, and your name and credentials will be verified in order to gain access. You will then receive an email with further instructions. If your email is address is not accepted, please contact the Alumni Office to reconcile your email address. Note: After logging in initially, your information will be saved and you will not be required to log in again, except following updates.
What information will be available for alumni to see?
The information in the Alumni Mobile App is identical to the information in the Alumni Directory. Provided that South Kent has it, the following contact information will display: Name, Street Address, City, State, Country, Phone Number(s), Email address, Education, and Profession.
Can I control the visibility of my information in the app?
Yes, click “Suggest an Update” at the bottom of your profile to identify the specific information that you would like to be hidden from other users. For example, you may request that your phone number be hidden, while other information remains visible.
Can I update my profile information from the mobile app?
Yes, it is easy to update your contact information in the mobile app. Click “Suggest an Update” at the bottom of your profile, and enter the requested change(s), which will be forwarded to the Alumni Office. To protect the integrity of the alumni database, you cannot change contact information in the mobile app in 'real time.' Once the updated information is submitted by you, the Alumni Office will update your profile in two to three business days. To suggest an update for a fellow South Kent classmate, friend, or family member, click the “Suggest an Update” button at the bottom of his/her profile.
Can I get a list of my classmates?
Yes. To display a list of classmates, simply enter your class year in the search field of the Directory. Full class lists are displayed, including deceased members of your class.
Can I e-mail or call another alumna/us directly from the app?
Yes. While in the Directory, tap the e-mail address of the alumna/us you wish to contact and your e-mail provider will generate a message. If you click the phone number, your phone will begin to dial the number.
How do I connect the app with my LinkedIn and Facebook accounts?
From the main menu of the app, click on "Settings," and then click on "Manage Accounts." From there you will have the option to connect with your LinkedIn and/or your Facebook accounts. For example, if you connect your LinkedIn account to the app, it will automatically pull in any professional information directly from your account.
When using the Nearby tool with the map, how do I locate alumni in another location outside of my current location?
Click the magnifying glass in the bottom right corner of the map. This will allow you to enter a specific address, city, state, country, or zip code to search. Zoom out by pinching two fingers together on the screen and then trail one finger to the desired area on the map. South Kent seal pins will display representing the locations of alumni.
When using the map, how do I know who is in the area and in my class?
Click the list button in the upper right-hand corner. This will generate a list of the alumni in the area, along with class years.
How can I see events in my area?
Click the Events icon. At the bottom of the screen, click on "Past" to view pictures and recaps from past events. Click on "Future" to view a list of upcoming events. Click on specific events for more detailed information.
