Postings

The Postings tab displays any postings made by your connection available. Users with the ability to create a posting for at least one topic have a Create New link available to them directly on the Postings section. Clicking this link creates a new posting.

When the Create New link is selected, the Postings Type window appears (unless only one posting type is available).

After the user selects the posting type and clicks Submit, they are taken to the Create Posting page.

From the Topic drop-down list, the user can select the topic for which they are creating a posting. Only the topics to which they are able to post are available in the drop-down list.

After the user enters all of the appropriate information for their posting, they can click Submit. This submits the posting and the posting is visible in the Postings list if it does not require approval. If the posting does require approval, it does not appear until it has been approved.

As with other postings, the posting can be found in the following places:
