BloomBoard offers the ability to reach out directly to another participant or group of participants within your program. If you'd like to send a direct message you can do so by following the steps below:
- Access discussions by clicking the Collaborate icon on the left-hand menu from your Dashboard.
Participants can also access this space from the Collaborate right-hand drawer within a Model 4 micro-credential.
Participants can also access this space from the top right corner within a Model 5 or 6 micro-credential.
- Navigate to the Direct Message section in Collaborate and click the blue plus sign.
- Search for the name of the person you wish to message, select it, and that will allow you to start a Direct Message. You can also choose a group of individuals to message at the same time.
Helpful Hint - You can search for people by their role if you are looking for a coach vs a participant.
- Type in your message as usual and press Enter/Return on your keyboard to send.
They'll receive an email letting them know you've sent a direct message and they'll view your message on BloomBoard.
Please note, an email notification is sent only when a conversation is started. Email notifications are not sent for every reply but will appear in My Notifications on their Dashboard.
