Be sure to allow notifications and location tracking for best results. Log in to the app with the credentials you just reset in the above step. (Do not attempt to create an account, a new account will not connect with your data.)
Now that you have the app downloaded, here are some key areas to explore to get you acquainted with its features.
Check your ‘Groups.’
At the top of your newsfeed, click "My Groups" to see which active applicable CRN committees, working groups, and task forces you are signed up for. Your groups determine the content you see in your newsfeed. Check off different groups to filter your feed, or leave the list unchecked to view them all. To join groups open to new participants, visit the Committee Preferences tab of the online members-only portal. Contact CRN's Gretchen Powers (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions about your committee involvement. Check out our quick intro video for details.
Set up your profile.
Access your profile via the "More" option at the bottom of your screen. Edit your job title as needed, then add a photo and a few lines about yourself by scrolling down to the "Bio" area. CRN will enhance profile capabilities going forward, so please send your feedback to email@example.com.
Explore your newsfeed, events calendar and resources.
By clicking menu items at the bottom of your screen, you can filter "Events" by your groups, add them to "My Schedule," and send them to your phone’s calendar.
"Resources" folders, accessible via the "More" option at the bottom of the screen, are determined by group involvement. Resources for all members, such as information on the Supplement OWL and other self-regulatory initiatives, are located here.
Send feedback on what other resources you'd like to see to your CRN group staff liaison or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Say ‘hello’ in one of our forums.
The "All CRN Watercooler" is a great place to start. There are also forums set up for each of the standing committees. Please remember to abide by the same code of conduct you would for engagement with CRN events.
Invite your colleagues to join you and connect with other app users.
"CRN Connect" is more fun with friends! Try out messaging and sharing features with your company colleagues before branching out to other CRN members. Add team members who join you on the app to your "favorites" and message as a group to share your favorite CRN content. Or, make notes to help you remember details about new contacts.
Use the portal to join committees and update your profile
Watch this quick how-to video on using CRN's online portal via our new app's "Resources" tab to self-select onto committees, working groups and task forces. This can also be done outside the app via the web here. Please note, to REMOVE yourself from a group, please contact Gretchen Powers.
