Best Practices & How-To Guide

Whether you’re organizing a group or working on your own profile, here are some tips to make your content look great and get even more out of your group.

Your Profile

Email Address

  • Personal: When signing up, we recommend using a personal email address (e.g. gmail) as school email addresses may expire
  • Group: If you’re the admin of your group, you can advise the other people you invite to use their personal email accounts too

Profile Photo

  • Style: Use a photo where you’re facing forward so it’s easy to recognize you on the full group page
  • Selfie: If you don’t have a recent photo handy, snap a selfie with your phone from the shoulders up
  • Quality: Try to use a high resolution photo (like one from your phone) so that the photo is clear and not grainy
  • Zoom: Use the portrait guideline so you can see the right amount to zoom in on your photo

Your Bio

  • Plans: Talk about where you’re headed next in terms of job opportunities, school, internships, and trips
  • Memories: Share a few thoughts on your favorite moments from the past 4 years
  • People: Call out the people and relationships from your group that were special to you
  • Length: Don’t try to summarize everything, stick to the highlights and keep it to a few paragraphs

Your List

  • Discover: Note people that you’d like to follow up with or get to know better
  • Remember: Use your list as a quick way to remember who you connected with recently
  • Filter: Use the filter on the yearbook page to quickly find those in your list

Group Settings

Group Name and Color

  • Name: For college and high school grads, your group name will usually be the name of your school
  • Subtitle: If you’re creating a group for your whole graduating class this can be “Class of 2020”, or for a specific group it can be the name of your team, house, etc.
  • Color: Pick the option that best fits with your school colors

Upcoming Event

  • Digital: If you’re planning a virtual graduation, end-of-year Zoom party, or any other digital get together, let your group know the details here
  • In-Person: Once we’re able, you can also use this space to note when that next live reunion will happen
  • Visible: The yearbook view is an easy place to check in and see who’s attending the next event

Group Description

  • Overview: Explain what this group is for and what connects everyone together
  • Information: Share any important details about upcoming events, or links to social accounts or upcoming Zoom get togethers¬†
  • People: List any notable people or organizers in the group that others might need to get in touch with
  • Length: Try to stay focused on the most recent or most important information so that details don’t get missed
