Connection Request - Send

Connection requests can be sent from the Universal Profile - Bio pages. The Connections section of the Bio - About page displays the user's total number of connections and team.

To access the Bio - About page, go to Home > Universal Profile. Click the Bio tab, and then click the About subtab. Note: The location of this link is configurable by your system administrator.

To access another user's Universal Profile - Bio page, select the user's photograph from any Universal Profile or Global Search page.

When viewing the Universal Profile - Bio page of another user, you can send a connection request for the user by selecting the Connect button in the upper-right corner of their profile.

  • If you are not connected to the user, the Connect button is available. Selecting Connect sends a connection request to the user. If enabled, the New Connection Request email is triggered when a connection request is sent.
  • If the user whose page you are viewing has sent you a connection request, but you have not yet responded, then selecting Accept confirms the connection and you are immediately connected. Accepting a connection request from a user automatically follows the user.
  • If you are not connected to the user, but you have already sent a connection request to the user, then "Connection Pending" is displayed and the button is disabled.
  • If you are already connected to the user, then Connected is displayed and the button is disabled.
  • When sending a connection request, this action automatically follows the user. This occurs immediately and does not require the user to accept the connection request.

Below the Connect button, the Bio - Connect widget displays the following information:

  • Connections - The number of connections the user has.
  • Mutual - The people to whom you are both connected.
  • Followers - The number of followers the user has.
