If you wish to change your login email, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why should I connect my LinkedIn account?
The app allows you to connect and network with other alumni using LinkedIn. Being connected via LinkedIn also enhances some of the app’s built-in features, like Professionals to Know and other filtering options. Once you are logged in, you can view information that alumni have chosen to include on their personal LinkedIn profiles along with the number of connections you have in common. You can directly connect with other McDonogh alumni by clicking the yellow LinkedIn button to add or invite alumni to LinkedIn. Any information that is provided by LinkedIn will appear on the profile screen with the LinkedIn icon to the right. Don’t forget to list McDonogh in your education information and to connect with our McDonogh Alumni LinkedIn Group.
How do I connect my LinkedIn?
You can log into the app using your LinkedIn credentials, which will automatically connect your LinkedIn account to your profile. However, if you choose to authenticate using a different email and password, you can still connect your LinkedIn account via settings. Simply click the gear icon at the top right of the menu page to enable LinkedIn.
What personal information will be available for alumni to see?
The following contact information will display: Name, Street Address, City, State, Country, Phone Number, Email Address, Education, and Employment.
Can I edit or hide my personal information displayed in the app?
Yes, click “Update This Profile” at the bottom of your record to request the specific information you would like to hide. For instance, you may request that your phone number be hidden while other information remain visible. Please note that regardless of your privacy settings, your name and class year will display in the app.
Can I update my profile information in the mobile app?
Yes, it is easy to update your contact information directly in the mobile app. Click “Update This Profile” at the bottom of your record with the requested changes which will be forwarded to the Alumni Office. To protect the integrity of the alumni database, you cannot directly change contact information in the mobile app in real time. Once the updated information is received, the Alumni Office will update your profile. To suggest an update for a fellow McDonogh classmate, friend, or family member, click the “Suggest an Update” button at the bottom of their profile.
Can I view a list of my classmates?
Yes, select Directory and enter your class year in the search field.
Can I email or call another alumni directly from the app?
Yes. While in the directory, tap the email address of the alum you wish to contact and your email provider will generate a message. If you click the phone number, your phone will dial the number.
When using the Alumni 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 town, state, country, or address to search. Zoom out by pinching two fingers together on the screen and then trail one finger to the desired area on the map. A black “M” pin will display representing the location of alums.
When using the map, how do I know who is in the area and in my class?
From the map screen, click the Filter button in the upper right-hand corner, select your class year, then Apply.
