  1. millstein's ticket

    i've been trying to use alumtalks for the last few months

    1. whenever i get a new batch of emails, they are A. not from people who actually wanted to connect with me. Please reword to be less misleading: "so and so is interested in meeting you"
    to "we've matched you and so and so"

    and B. doesnt work when i clickthru, linkedin won't authorize any action i take thru alumtalks including login

      • improve LinkedIn auth process

        Yea, it's not actually determined only by that. Since we actively use LinkedIn as a source of searchable data, we need to ensure that our app specifically is authed with each user whenever they log in. That authorization is revoked by LinkedIn periodically for security reasons, independent of whether or not you are logged in, so we must re-acquire authorization. This does not affect the state of your user profile, however. There may be a way to increase this time, we just need to look into it.

        • Ideas for features

          ~I really like the simplicity of it, it's very straightforward to use

          ~It would be helpful to see some additional examples on the website of other people's profiles to see how in-depth other people's tags are, and how much other people's profiles encompass

          ~It would be potentially be useful to have an additional optional text box for users to add extraneous information about themselves that isn't limited to just using tags

          ~Having another section that allows the user to choose what they want to get out of a match: whether it be for additional information on companies, interest in the…

            • Instruct me to send a follow up e-mail when a match has been made

              This initial email is helpful -- when I click the link I get the screen saying that we're matched, but it's saying that you still have to accept the match.

                it would be cool if you could suggest companies that I like within the industry I'm studying/working in.

                • Show the result after pressing 'Save now'

                  when you hit "save now"
                  it just turns into saving.. and then back to save now
                  I think it'd be great if you see like "your account info has been saved" come up somewhere

                  • Fix some UX bugs

                    "Except I've faced few issues like the popup saying share doesn't have a close button if one doesn't want to share.
                    In search I wasn't able to find Software giants like google and microsoft is it because of some reason??

                    And I guess it would be cool if you've shown something showing the result after clicking on "Save Now" like e-mail sent to matched alum or some thing like that."

                              I'm curious if there is any way to decrease the number of requests I am getting because I have gotten 4 in the last few days, but I'm perpetually on the road and might not have time to look at/deal with them for a while.

                                I wasn't really aware that I was successful in getting on the system. Probably need to do a few more Hoorays that you are in the system.

                                So if I start getting a lot of these emails from people I do not know....and have a hard time checking on....I am going to start ignoring them. I think I have a "patience level" that is pretty high....but I will not want to keep helping young Colgate people that I have no similarities.

                                Maybe if they were football players or frat members....I would be more willing to help them.
