Afternoon ABN...

I've recently added an advanced search option to the site, with the intention of making it easier to search for members by industry.

You can also add yourself to a industry category, so that others searching for your expertise can find you. 


HOW TO ADD EDIT YOUR PROFILE (so that you appear in the search!):

1. Access your personal profile page and click on the 'options' button shown below, then click to edit your profile.






2. Scroll down until you come to this section, then simply click any relevant boxes. Remember to press update at the bottom of the page to save your changes.

Please let me know below if you feel your business category is not represented.



HOW TO USE ADVANCED SEARCH (to find others by industry!):

1. You'll need to begin by accessing the 'Member Directory' from the top bar.






2. Then click straight on the 'Advanced Search' button below, don't write anything yet!






3. Choose from the range of categories then press search, the members who have listed themselves under each will appear. You can then click to access their profiles/connect with them.

















Note: Anyone joining the site from now will be asked to fill in this section at our sign-up stage. So make sure you don't miss out!
