UIDP Members Participating in myUIDP Beta Testing
UIDP member reps involved and engaged in myUIDP beta test as we work towards launching a great new tool for UIDP members
This year, we’ll be launching myUIDP, an online platform to help our members get the most out of their membership in UIDP, as individuals and organizations. The myUIDP beta test is underway. (Read more about what UIDP members will be able to do in myUIDP here.)
Join us today in the myUIDP beta test
We started beta testing in the fall with members of several committees, giving us the opportunity to test the platform before we roll it out, and want to give other UIDP members a chance to participate. Member input in the platform will help ensure everything works the way we want it to before we launch. Contact Angie firstname.lastname@example.org to participate. (myUIDP is only available to our members. Find out more about membership in UIDP here.)
So many features we can’t wait for you to try!
The first thing you will do as a beta tester (and user, when we launch) is create a myUIDP profile.
When you create your profile, you enter information in much the same way you do on any other social platform (think LinkedIn, Facebook, etc.), including information that indicates your preferences and areas of interest. This helps us, and you, tailor the information you see in the system going forward.
Once your profile is set up, the fun starts!
A great first step is building your network within the platform.
Active members’ posts will populate on your “My Feed” Page allowing you to communicate and request to “connect” with other Beta Testers (and other members after we launch).
You can also find other UIDP members within myUIDP’s Directory, where you can search by Name and Group (shown), and by Country and Location (not shown).
Once you’ve connected with people, they’ll show up in your Connections.
An important reason we are launching myUIDP is to help our members better collaborate online, in-between UIDP events.
The myUIDP Groups are a feature we’re going to be using a lot, especially for Projects and Committees.
Using the Groups functionality, we’ll be able to put all the information pertinent to a Project or a Committee into one place making it easier to stay up to date, access information, and connect and collaborate with other members and UIDP staff.
Our C-Comm (Communication Committee) used the space on their last committee call to access documents as well as pages dedicated to activities the C-Comm is currently engaged in.
This is just a quick teaser of what’s coming with myUIDP. If you want more, sign up to be a beta tester!
