WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR ALUMNI TO SEE?
The information in the Alumni mobile app is identical to the information in the Alumni Directory. Unless you have previously modified your personal preferences in the Alumni Directory, the following contact information will display: Name, Street Address, City, State, Country, Phone Number, Email address, Education, and Employment.


CAN I EDIT OR UPDATE MY PERSONAL INFORMATION DISPLAYED IN THE APP?

Yes. To hide all your information or particular categories of your information, please use the “Suggest an Update” button at the bottom of your profile to submit updates directly to the Berkshire Alumni Office. A blank form will open and you can simply instruct us in writing which fields you'd like hidden and which you'd like to remain visible. Categories of information include: Personal, Professional, Academic, Activities. Your name, class year and major will always appear to all authenticated users.


CAN I HIDE MY PROFILE INFORMATION DIRECTLY IN THE MOBILE APP?

Yes, click “Suggest an Update” at the bottom of your profile to request the specific information that you would like to hide. A blank form will open and you can simply instruct to us in writing which fields you'd like hidden, such as requesting that your phone number be hidden while wanting other information to remain visible. Please note that regardless of your privacy settings, your name and class year will display in the app.


USING THE DIRECTORY: CAN I SEARCH FOR A LIST OF MY CLASSMATES?

Yes, simply enter your class year in the search field of the directory. Deceased and inactive classmates are not displayed.


CAN I EMAIL OR CALL ANOTHER ALUM 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 begin to dial the number.


HOW DO I CONNECT THE APP WITH MY LINKEDIN ACCOUNT?

The latest update of the app enables all alums to directly connect and professionally network using LinkedIn. When using the mobile app, you are able to connect your personal LinkedIn account with the directory by clicking the yellow “Login to LinkedIn for enhanced profiles” button. Once you are logged in, you can view information that alums 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 Berkshire alumni by clicking the yellow LinkedIn button to add or invite alums 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 Berkshire in your education information and to connect with our Berkshire School LinkedIn Group.


WHEN USING THE NEARBY TOOL WITH THE MAP, HOW DO I LOCATE ALUMS 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 green and gray “B” pin will display representing the location of alums.


IS THE LOCATION INFORMATION REAL-TIME?

No. The location information is based on home and employment address information in the Alumni Directory and is only as up to date as you or your classmates have informed us. Please keep your information up to date and encourage other classmates do the same.


WHEN USING THE MAP, HOW DO I KNOW WHO IS IN THE AREA AND IN MY CLASS?

Click the list button in the upper right-hand corner. This will generate a list of the alumni in the area, sorted by year.
