With Directories, you can build a content library for your alumni, including

  • Yearbooks

  • Newsletters

  • Alumni businesses

  • Webinar

Alumni can access this content, contribute their own, and share it effortlessly, ensuring that valuable resources are always within reach.

💡Did you know: Directories can also be embedded into any website and that means you can publish on your school site!

Directories are Form-driven

  • Each Directory is linked to a form.

  • Content or items are added through the form.

  • Learn how to set a form here.

  • The form type must be 'To collect submissions for Directory'.

Directories have different displays too

Add rich content to your forms

  • Rich text fields: Enable users to share formatted content with images, videos etc.

  • Default cover image: Make it easier for your users to comprehend the content while making the more lively.
